EV thresholds in tournaments

Iíve been obsessing over a hand I played in the early/mid stages of a satellite tournament the other day. Iíve determined that my play had a +7BB expected value. But it got me thinking, is that enough to justify the risk. I started the hand with 37BB. If I lost the pot I would have just shy of 9. When weíre far from the bubble, is any +EV worth the risk? Or is there a threshold where winning a small number of blinds at the risk of most of your stack not worth it?

I hope this question makes sense. If I need to clarify, I will do my best.

Use icmizer if you're unsure. But +7bb is a lot. Are you sure it really was yielding +7bb tho?
