I mentioned before about the importance of different streets WRST stack sizes. One thing that's not obvious is that the deeper the stacks, the less preflop matters. Think about this - say you have AK and your opponent has 47. He has the advantage of knowing you play good cards, you have the advantage of having better cards. How do your better cards help you? Well, the only real advantage of AKo is that you have a better chance of making a better pair. But he's not going to pay you off with one pair anyway. Both of you can make two pairs, straights, trips, etc. Now, you have the advantage that if you BOTH make two pair, yours is better, so you will get a small edge from that over time in the long run, but that's very small.
