If I had $12, I would rather have the nuts vs a large stack than a stack equal to mine.
If you have a bankroll of $50, then you shouldn't be playing with $10 at a table. If you are going to play with $10, then you should be at a 0.05/0.10 table or a $50 table.
Short stack strategy means playing with a stack that you can get all your money in preflop or on the flop and denying your opponents implied odds
to call your preflop raise set mining or with connectors.
Using in between sizes you lack the advantages of both short stack or deep stack play.
