You still need to strategize. You need to recognize and be aware of the stacks around you and who you are shoving into.
For example, if the person in the BB has a massive stack (80+ BB) and may not be worried about losing 8 BB's. Is this the kind of guy who is going to call you with almost anything? Then shoving ATC may not be the best move.
Of course the counter to that is you really need to double up, so you WANT and NEED someone to call you - so this same situation could be heaven sent with the right two cards - and they don't have to be as great as you might think.
On the other hand there is pretty good fold equity in attacking the medium stacks. They are going to think twice about losing 1/3 or more of their stack.
Again, you want to double up, but if you are not getting cards you at least need to try to buy another orbit by stealing the blinds - but look for the best opportunities to do so.
