      I am trying to find some edge playing as a short stacker myself at regular cash tables. Don't know much about how to do it apart from observing my opponents and getting a few ideas. If I see you make a light call all-in pre flop 100bb deep, for example AT, KJ,.. against another player as deep as you then I am happy with AK playing off a 50bb stack because I assume my hand equity is stronger to take your money. Observe the 1/2 stacker you may see some tells. Maybe reluctance to respond when you 3bet them? Are they calling 3bets out of position? They have reduced odds to set mine their small pairs when getting shorter do you have 88+ to play them as a pair to the board. "Preparing" to go all in may be your perception? A good player will go for stacks with a good hand a bad player (you observe) will not have a clue how bad their hand is compared to yours. You can play your good hands and monster draws with confidence but don't go looking for a gut shot draw or hitting your AK if they jam or pot it on the flop. Playing short stack to me is a brave new world of small ball post flop play. Going all-in pre flop is specifically with reads on opponents. umbup:
