Simple maths as in, you have to consider more than one hand.
assume all hands are all in and ignore rake
hand 1 villain wins
stacks now Hero £4 Villian £2
Hand 2 villain wins
stacks now Hero £2 Villian £4
Hand 3 villain wins
stacks now Hero £0 Villian £6

Now assume all hands all in again from the start: Hero £5 villain £1
Hand 1 Hero wins
Stacks now hero £6 Villian £0
Villian sods off

The above is all extreme case, but make it easy to explain the numbers and risk to reward
So villain had the opportunity to win £5 and hero was only ever able to win a maximum of £1
When these people make mistakes I want to punish them for stacks.
"If I do ultimately get dominated I'm not sticking around for a whole stack to disappear and if I did buy max id be leaving after a buck or so anyway."
Never heard of variance? some times the best hand gets draw out on, and shortstackers have ok implied odds
to chase draws. plus I crush these stakes, not that I am an amazing player, I just use solid ABC and dont do stupid things.
And most people do stick around until they have lost the whole £5, they dont have the brains to realise they will usually lose the whole stack. When people get outplayed they just go tilty and makes finishing the job even easier.
"Just because you want to play 200+ hands doesnt mean they're there for more than 5. Or even just 1"
Thats totally fine, I am not saying "YOU MUST BUY IN MAX" I simply let them know, in a nice way that I only play for the max. and I dont want to play against hit and runners.
