    There is a benefit in playing short stack. You can make more risk and shove when you got good hands. This makes deep stack players would only play strong made premium hands agasint the short stacks. Therefore, if you are agressive, this is the advantage. You can steal a lot of small pots and take it down preflop and slowly build your stack.

    However, this is only if you choose to play short stack form the start. Also, you need to keep replenish your short stack amount everytime you go below it to give yourself as much value in playing your hands.

    I find most short stacks I play are playing more marginal hands and getting themselves into problems with 1 pair.

    In addition they are generally more fit or fold. So they are easy to read and play against.
