This is a discussion on Question for play in ITM within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hello i want to ask you all how you play with short stack in ITM around 100 Players. Thank you for you answers :) sry
Like most have already said when short stacked you are moving into push/fold territory if by short stacked you mean 10-15bb or less.
However I would add that we want to look to see why we are getting so short, our goal should be to try reach the FT and not just min cash. I think implementing a 3bet shove strategy around 18-25bb is also good. I am not saying to 3bet jam everything but it is good to have a range in which you can 3bet shove vs the mid/large stacks when you have position, good way to pick up some chips but also if you get called you will usually be not be far behind and a double would put you in good stead to reach FT.
With a short stack, it seems to me to play a push-fold strategy better. Do not play with all the cards you come across. Play carefully, I think everything will depend on luck here, because in the short stack pocket AAs can run over. Well, if it turns out to double up, we switch to a tight style.

Immediately after the bubble, as a rule, there follows a series of departures of short stacks, which barely lasted until the money. If you also have a short stack, expect a good hand that you can open-shove rather than call a shove (assuming you have a choice, of course). If you have average stack and above, it's time to close up. The wave of the first sorties will still move you up the prize ladder without your participation, but do not get used to such a game.At some point (in small MTTs pretty soon) the number of players in the "danger zone" (5-6 bb and less) will approach two or three, or even zero, and the tournament will move on to the next stage of the ITM stage, in which it is better to be ready to be active
