the meaning is if I am using short stack strategy to play with your 100BB full buyin.
if you don't want to lose money, you have to turn into short stack strategy , this is for sure.
regardless of skill. If you call Phil Ivey , if he is using Big stack strategy VS shortstack strategy at any cash table, Phil Ivey is losing money this is for sure.
simply because the equity there.
there is no losing potential EV for load shortstack. example, if you want to using 20BB stack , just play 5 tables at same time the EV is the same when you play 100BB one tabled. the effective stack in play are the same for this two occasions.
and one more advantage for shortstack is ...
shortstack is easy to multi-tabling
you may open 9 big stack table, but I am easy to play 48 tables with several poker rooms using shortstack and still feel easy to add about 10-12 tables and playing comfortable. think playing 60 table is still very comfortable for shortstack cash strategy but it is trouble for big stack strategy on 12 tables.
