      I am just wondering whether small stack has any advantage on a table. For example, suppose everyone on the table has 100bb except you, and you have 20bb. Will you have any advantage according to GTO? For example, you can easily 3bet shove decent pps etc., but if you open raise, it is other ppl need to 3bet much tighter because they also need to worry about players behind them.

      This is exactly the advantage of playing the small stack ;)

      They also tend to NOT know what to do if they get shoved into so they either play too tight or too lose :)
