I am not sure I have understood that correctly. Are you suggesting that, when playing a short stack, you should limp in with speculative hands and hope to hit a flop ?
If so, I don`t agree. When short-stacked, you should be saving your chips for a decisive move and then (as Poker Orifice remarks above) seeing that move through and doubling up if at all possible.
us that when you are short-stacked (especially near the end of a tournament) each of your chips has greater value. Therefore, you should husband them carefully and use them effectively.
