Do Not Discount the Short Stack

Yes they may be light in chips but they have nothing to lose so it is harder to tell if they are making a move with rags or the nuts. If you have a big chip stack you may want to try to take them down but if your stack is middle of the road or marginal and there are several players left to act don’t try to be the hero unless you have the right cards or pot odds especially if you are close to making it into the money.
