If a guy buys in 1k chips everytime, and another guy with 100k chips goes all in everyhand. the 1kchip stack can only go so far playing well till he gets sucked out. This is why the big chip stack has such huge advantage. Overtime big chip stack will win at most tables because of thise, though most people dont notice. All the pros buy in for max, your laughed at if you don't. Just move down a stake.
Ok, there is more to poker than you think. The things that you write about short stacks vs big stacks are just not true.
Playing short stack can be very effective too.
You cant make the same plays vs a short stack, and a short stack is not that difficult to play.
The reason to have a big stack is that you feel comfortable winning big pots, as a small stack can only win smaller pot.
