      Can someone please explain to me why:

      a) it is supposedly easier to play SSS with a ~16BB stack than with 20BB; and
      b) whether this is a mathematical advantage or merely relates to our being able to push our remaining stack on the flop when we c-bet more often without overbetting - with, presumably, an advantage in fold equity?

      Thanks in advance,
      Tim

      -the risk reward ratio is much better when restealing for example.
      - you get an easier payout because villian hast just to call "around 10-14bb"
      - you can shove preflop much easier when there are limpers
