Depending on the table, sometimes this is optimum strategy.
SS2 has a brief blurb on it. Essentially, you are
freerolling with their money.
This allows you to make some bigger calls then you'd like to.
I use this strategy quite frequently when I pick up a big stack.
Last night at the $2/4NL 5handed table:
Stacks as follows: Big stack: $800-1000
Fish 1: $100-150
Fish 2: $75-100
Fish 3: $75-125
Standard PF raise was $14-20.
This cripples their FoldEquity, and if you had a strong draw, it minimized your loss factor.
