This is a discussion on All-in - about to loose vs good hand within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Most of the time, people play all-in for two reasons:
- Good hands
- Lost too much chips
There are others motivations to play all-in... What is
The game in the style of "push-fold" is much easier to learn and does not require a lot of knowledge in the strategy. Especially it concerns the game in freerolls - after all you can lose the tournament without losing your money. Have you lost your hand? Just go to the next tournament. Play until you double, then quadruple. And then you will certainly get into prizes.
My reason to play all in bluff! That's the reason to play so aggressively, but this technique in the game should be used carefully and only in a situation that helps you! It is also necessary to learn your opponent well enough! Here is my answer to your question is a Bluff.
Every citizen has his opinion which is the most correct !!
I always go to everything with pocket AA or KK on preflop. Such a map is rare and therefore there are only two ways: or..or. But if you have even only 100-300 stack you should not to go all in. Wait. And maybe everything will turn in your favor.
I think that it is not so simple. There are different situations when all-in is best solution. For example:
1. When you have good hand at the turn or river and your opponent(s) are already pot commited so you want to gain maximum profit.
2. When you have strong hand preflop and you want to make as many players out of the game as possible ideally leaving just one or 2 of them for the flop.
3. When trying to steal blinds.
I am sure that there are also other cases. Regarding the situation when you are short stack - well in every case when you need to invest more than 30% of your stack you are already pot commited so syou should go all-in anyway.
You're right in what you've written, but one of the reasons I'm all-in is that: when I have AA, regardless of position, I'm all-in for other players playing small cards, just like connectors, 67 , 89, 9T, and I have great chances to lose in front of them.
I play all-in only when I have a good hand and when I have a good combination, but this is a poker game and different situations are in the game, sometimes I win the game but I also lose in the game, sometimes for me the bluff helps when I go all-in!

It's necessary to act according to the situation) If there are less than 10 BB and the bubble is still far away, or I have monsters in my hands, even for stealing blinds and under certain conditions it is possible to push the whole stack against opponents who are used to limping and playing tightly) Options for All-in can be many)
Lots of people go all in without knowing what they want to accomplish. Thanks to that they are in the tournament max. 30 min. I’m playing in one room where people whenever see one A in their hands they go all. They may hit sometime that A, but in most of the time they are really exploitable. So I like to see flop first then go all in. Some times I have thrown KK,QQAK and waited better spot to go all in and take their chips. After all this is strategy game and who have better decisions and plan for he’s game definitely wins.
