how to play this kind of poker?

Ok

As some of you know, I haven't played poker in a while, so this may seem like a noob question.

I found myself in a casino last week with time to burn, so i wandered over to the poker tables to rail, and found myself starring at a game that looked insane.

game : texas-holdem no limit
blinds : 300/600
min buyin : 2k
max players : 6

that's right. the min buyin is 2k. Well i of course didn't notice it at first, which was why it puzzled me when i continually saw wierd all-in hands like KQos calling 66 or A2os calling A4os. Basically they were all short stacked and pushing with practically anything. Only two guys were deep stacked, but from how they played, I can only assume it's because they're luckier, not that they bought in deep.

So here I was looking at a table full of players trigger happy to call all ins with KQos, and found myself wondering if I could beat the game there. On careful reflection that night back in the hotel room, I realised I probably couldn't.

So, anyone wants to tell me if they were donkeys playing roulette, or highly skilled short stack players? If the former, how would i beat a table like that, and if the latter, is it really profitable playing like that?(the variance has to be sky high)

if i buy in 2k with blind level at 300/600 how do i plan to play? a call or any amount of raise will be pot committed. waiting for premium hand will most of the time blinded out. if that is the case what range of hand do i want to go all in?

my question is slightly more complex

what if i buyin for 10k? Can I think of a strategy that has an edge over the 2k buyins? Or is this short stack strategy too formidable?

no one is deep enough for you to have any edge. go play baccarat is less time consuming
