Page 2 - This is a discussion on Small pairs (22-99) within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Depending on your stack , how do you play small pairs - 22-99?
I often see how a short stack plays all-in with small pairs,
You have to choose to play for value or bluff, playing for value, you have to call if there is impied odds. Pairs hit the third of a kind about 10%, so you have to get a pot with 10x over your cal.

With a small pair, your task is to get into the set on the flop, preferably when several players participate . The set you will get one time out of 8

it depends on stack sizes around you and your position at the table. often times lower pairs can be folds UTG later in tournaments if you have a bunch of stacks with 20 BB or less behind you that might shove

It depends how much it costs, but I have become more careful to play small couples, you lose more often than you win

Yes, sometimes I play, but the truth when it does not threaten my departure, at the initial stage is extremely cautious, but that cool feeling when with a small pair of screaming aces, it's a fiasco bro.

Match game according to my stack and position on the table. If I am in final position with small stacked all in to press the villain and make the fold in better hands, if it is with large pile, I give standard increase of 3x.

With middle stack early position try to see a cheap flop , late position min raise to possibly take the blinds . The bigger your stack is the more aggressive you can get.
