I saw an Opportunity to win some much needed chips but looking back im not sure if I made the right move. The other players had been playing pretty loose, especially the top right villain.

Looks pretty standard to me. And you even had the field dominated. What's not to like?

Well we have 48 bb's to start the hand, but if the guy is going to stack off worse aces then I'm ok with shoving. There's already 460 in the pot which you certainly have fold equity to pick up, and you can still be called by worse, in most cases when you are called you'll be a coin flip or a dominating favorite.

The raise/call with AT is terrible. With the read that he's loose and will punt his stack this light, I like your play.
