OK im asuming you mean to slowplay preflop and thenshove the flop.
In a SS game, thats fine... its expected.. but in a deeper game noone is calling an all-in with a lower pair. Even 2 pair is a struggle.
You are simply polarising your betting in a way ahead / way behind situation.
If you are ahead then the bet size is large enough to fold out all lesser hands.. you win a pot that you would likely have won at showdown. Charge a draw.. but BAM all-in .. its just too polarised.
Now hands that beat you.. sets . they arent folding.
So its not a +ev play. You are either shoving into a pot you are already winning and forcing out everyone who you beat, or you are offering your money on a plate to better hands.
BAM all-in is not a great move
