By the time your at the bubble you must have plenty of chips or already be out of the tourny. If you find yourself struggling to survive at the bubble, u must not be playing right.
^THIS. The only way you should be short-stacked is if you took a painful gashing of the chips right near the bubble. Otherwise, you're probably just being a nit and getting blinded out.
I don't remember when I was last on the bubble, but recently I knocked a guy out of a satellite on the bubble and it was his 2nd week in a row being bubbled in that same satellite.
