Well, to be able to adequately answer your question, which is fair, we'd need more information.
What were the stack sizes of both he and his opponent?
What were their positions in that hand?
What was the table dynamic? Was it tight? (thinking that it's a bubble situation, it probably was).
Just some general comments on the play though. I think the play is fine, because he's not looking to min-cash a tournament. He's looking for spots to accumulate chips, and more often than not, he's being called by two overcards and is in a coinflip situation as a slight favorite. In the long run, it's a profitable play I think on his part. If he doubles up, it gives him more chips to apply even greater pressure on the rest of the table, and on the bubble, it's about chip accumulation.
Would I have shoved? Well, in a vacuum, it's hard to say, but I probably would part of the time, and fold part of the time.
But if you have more information, please share it with us. I think this thread has potential to be a good spot to discuss tournament strategy, but without enough information, the answers you'll get will be on incomplete information on your part.
