Lets say you have a stack of 1440, blinds are 60/120 w/o antes, and it's 9 handed. If you're on the button and you fold every hand for a full rotation, your stack drops down to 1260 or 10.5 BBs. That's pretty significant to drop from 12 BBs to 10 in just 9 hands.
If we add 10% antes or 12 chips, it's even more. For the same rotation, you're paying a total of 288 chips. If you folded every hand, you're down to 9.6 BBs.
So, no you don't have the opportunity to wait for good cards. The difference between 10 BBs and 12 BBs is so small, everything you would play/shove/call with 10 BBs, you should be doing the same for 12 BBs.
