Hand Question #1

For once, I'm going to post a hand here that might be interesting and hope for some comments. Hopefully it'll make me a slightly better player.

The set up : $3 rebuy turbo sat to the sunday warm up. We've just broke the money bubble but not the seat bubble.
357 entrants, 18 left. 13 players get seats, the rest $12. I invested $9 by rebuying at the start and adding on.
The blinds rocket up in these and in less than 1 minute will be 10k/20k/1k, its push/fold poker all the way.

The hand :

Table '79265210 21' 9-max Seat #2 is the button
Seat 1: Klaversma (74795 in chips)
Seat 2: kooshla (35118 in chips)
Seat 3: first-dane (100029 in chips)
Seat 4: TanOrpheus (18880 in chips)
Seat 5: Ditalino (71130 in chips)
Seat 6: rojotoronja (64684 in chips)
Seat 7: gerens (67246 in chips)
Seat 8: leffan69 (83700 in chips)
Seat 9: Nase66 (78788 in chips)
All post the ante of 600
first-dane: posts small blind 6000
TanOrpheus: posts big blind 12000

Dealt to TanOrpheus [2d 7s]
Ditalino: folds
rojotoronja: folds
gerens: raises 24000 to 36000
leffan69: folds
Nase66: folds
Klaversma: folds
kooshla: folds
first-dane: folds

Ok, so "yay, cool" it's the Hammer! but we can be serious for a minute and ignore that. Is this a mandatory call whatever cards I have ? I think it is. I'll be allin on my SB next hand anyway so I should call here and hope to get lucky and win a slightly bigger pot here than hope to get lucky and win a smaller pot on the next hand right ? So many of my chips are out there already I'm basically allin here anyway aren't I. It's ok you can just comment "standard" if its that simple.
Thanks for your time.

I'll be called an idiot by those that are "pro" push any two cards for sure Tan, but I'd rather release the hammer and hope for my next hand to be gold.
(or at least bronze)
If there's an auto-push with the hammer in this situation, I'm not a good enough player to recognize it.
I'll take 4-5, 5-7, 7-9 or something that gives me a fighting chance with connections as well as live cards.

But like I said, I'm probably an idiot.
