To put all your eggs in one basket

I was wondering if, under the circumstances in Poland, it was appropriate to post but I thought, life has to go on and I was trying to think of something suitable for an idiom.

Regardless of whether you liked or disliked the President, it's clearly an enormous national tragedy.
