All in is one the most overused misplays in the game, ring or tourney, largely used by peeps who watch too much TV poker... either they learn better eventually or spew chips until they bust their BR. Funniest thing is those who whine when someone sucks out on them with an equally misplayed call.
Of course many situations call for a shove but one has to know which ones... a little knowledge (emulating TV tourney poker and its dramatic shoves, final table fireworks etc.) can do a lot of damage to yr game...
