      Ok, I got 2 short questions about Short Stack Strategy :

      1) Is it ever ok to limp an unraised pot from late position with low pockets, as you and all opponents have at least 15 times the BB and it's good for set value if it were BBS.

      2) Is it ok to stay at a table if you have over 25 BB but have a couple of free hands left ?

      Dont know rly much bout the sss, so cant rly answer question 1. But for question 1, ofcourse u should stay if u can get to see some hands for free! U pay 0$ to see those hands, and what if u catch some nice pocket rockets? Only moving in with AA and folding the rest would be profitable, so always stay untill ur UTG, and then leave the table!

      If you get 7:1 or better to call with your pocket pair and you can call after the Call15 rule and you are in Late Position (I recommand the BU here), you can call here for set value.

      When you doubled up or have more than 25 BB, you should wait to leave the table until you´re about to post the big blind again. So yes play the free hands you get.
