      Ive noticed that I am deferentially a better big stack bully than short stack player. not sure whether everyone is or whether anyone knows any good reading material to improve my 30bb and below game?

      You should try to get your hands on some Nash-range chart. A good one is to be found in the book "Kill Everyone".

      Especially if you have <15BB the nash ranges are extremely important.

      For 15 to 30BB stacks it is hard to give solid tips.
      I would resteal a lot with 15 to 20BB vs late position open raises (by pushing allin).
      20 to 30BB is always a bit hard to play and most people have their dificulties with these stacksizes.

      Maybe it would help to watch some of our videos and have a look at how other coaches play with these stacks. In the end there is no perfect way to play them. It depends on your opponents and the tournament structure.

      Are nash ranges only for HU pots?

      They are meant to balance your first in pushing range. Therefore you can't influence how many people participate anyways ;)

      Callingranges are a bit harder to work out. If your opponent pushes according to nash you can easily equilate your equity against his range. If he doesn't you will have to adapt. Same goes for multiple opponents.
