      Does anyone have a preference between short stack strategy and big stack strategy NL holdem playing very low stakes? Are there reasons to use one strategy ahead of the other?

      Well obviously short stack is better since you only lose half of what you would if you'd play BSS.

      But siriously, those are 2 completely different strategys and most people perefer to play BSS since your edge on your opponents is bigger due to more streets that you have to play. With SSS your all in either pre or on the flop.
      You also want to have a big stack so you can extract the most value out of the weaker players when you hit your hands.

      BSS if you want to become a good poker player, SSS if you want to grind rake for PS imo.
