'Free-for-all' nghĩa là cuộc loạn đả (a disorganized or unrestricted situation or event in which everyone may take part, especially a fight, discussion, or trading market; brawl, fight, scuffle, tussle, struggle, confrontation, clash, altercation, fray, fracas, melee, rumpus, disturbance).

Ví dụ
Make it a level playing field, not a free-for-all.

Brazil's cybercrime free-for-all: many scams and little punishment.

Iran is about to become the biggest free-for-all since the Soviet collapse.

The war had shattered (phá hủy hoàn toàn) pretensions to universality or confessional solidarity. Begun as a struggle of Catholics against Protestants, particularly after France’s entry against the Catholic Holy Roman Empire (Đế quốc La Mã Thần thánh theo Thiên chúa giáo) it had turned into a free-for-all of shifting and conflicting alliances.
