noun; zero derivation
a strategy videogame tactic in which a player forgoes base expansion in favor of a stronger early-game attack force. Failure leaves that player in an extremely disadvantageous position, likely ending in loss.
Ex: “I barely managed to survive his allin, but it left him defenseless and easily beaten.”
Etymology : Derived from the poker compound “all in,” where a player places all of chips in a single hand.
