i have seen people who actively move tables every 20 mins or so, they play massive LAG, crazy stuff try to win a few pots, then when people work him out, he just jumps tables, i was multitabling the other day and saw him pop through all my tables, god bless the HuD
They probably arent shortstacks.
Shortstack, in the context of a discussion about shortstackers means players who are playing 20bb stacks and playing a SS strategy which is hyper aggressive.
Most commonly when you see someone with a small stack, they are just a bad player and not playing any real strategy.
Somoene playing a SS stratagy is going to be shoving a lot from the blinds, against CO and BTN opens if the BTN or CO isnt adjusting to the SS.
Bad payers will be calling alot and trying to play postflop with small stacks.
Itys generally accepted that its almost impossible to beat the rake playing a SS strategy at under 200NL so if you are playing under 200NL you probably havent come across a real shortstacker.
