      This is the essence of the short-stack strategy.

      You can read all about it here:

      Start with the introduction which outlines the basics of this strategy.

      Essentially, you play w/ 20bb in your stack, and leave when you have more than 25 bb -- way before you double up, in other words.

      I know that Poker770 still allows 20bb stacks -- at least at NL 4 and NL 5, but I don't know about other rooms.

      If their minimum is more than 20bb, you may need to look at the mid-stack strategy.

      Hey Tonyzer!

      It all depends who is reading your question. People who play SSS will say it's a great idea! People who play BSS will say it's a bad idea.

      It all depends which strategy you are playing. In our articles you can find the different strategy's for different buy-ins.
