re: Poker & Short stack deep in the field
I find that picknig on the stacks smaller than you is a great way to pick up blinds. If they only called first time around, they usually don't have astrong hand. I can bet 4 or 5 times the BB and usually pick their blinds up. Often, they will also call because they realize that already put 1/3 stack in by calling the BB, so they may as well call your raise and go all-in. This theory is usually bad since if their hand was good enough to go all-in, they would have done that initially. Easy pickings!!!! You don't win every time, but I would guess 75% of the time I knock these guys out when I essentially force them all-in.
