Miller's Short Stack Strategy

Ed Miller has a new article up in CardPlayer. The text can be found online at:

The article is about playing short stack, a follow-up on Miller's famous short stack strategy described in Getting Started in Hold 'em, Miller's second book. Here's an escerpt:

"...if you have $100 and everyone else at the table has $1,000, you actually have an advantage over your opponents. In fact, you have two major advantages."

"...Playing short allows you to face a uniform stack size (yours), and enables you to benefit when your opponents face mixed-stack situations."

"...the second advantage of having the short stack at the table; you can gain fold equity without risk."

"...The peddlers of the biggest myth will tell you that having a shorter stack than everyone else puts you at a disadvantage. Not only are they wrong, but the opposite is true. No matter what stack size you play, you enjoy advantages when your opponents play much deeper stacks."
