Short handed

SH is a poker acronym describing a table with fewer card players than usual in standard play. For example, if the table is two players short, you might ask everyone, "You know of any players that want to join? We r sh."

People may also use "SH" for contexts other than poker or other online games.

Or, you may be short-handed for moving out of your house, and email friends and family for help, "If anyone is free this week to help move, we'd love your help! We are SH and will provide pizza. :)"
