LC - Why don't you play 6 max ?
      #11736272 - 08/19/07 04:30 PM

So far I have only played full-ring cash games online (about 25000 hands) and my reasons for playing it is that this is what is played in casinos and I would eventually like to play live games so I see this as a training period. I also prefer to play a TAG game and my opinion is that 6-max is more suited to a LAG player.


However, everyone else I know who plays cash games plays 6-max and their main reason for doing this is that they say 6-max is more profitable for a winning player because they will be playing more hands vs the losing players..

What do you think? Do you agree ? Why do you play full-ring ? Why don't you play 6-max ?

They are right. 6-max is more profitable. There is also more variance. If you like fr, then play fr.

I played 6-max for most of the first 1/2 of this year. The variance is gross.

Try limit if you want gross variance.

Yea,

I am slowly going to make a transition. It is obvious that it is much more suitable for my style anyways(16/13-18/13 or so at FR, I played 24/22 when I tried out some 6-max), but right now the profit at FR is so easy I can't convince myself to leave and learn a new game quite yet.

I don't mind variance because playing with a big BR would make it feel like it isn't bad at all and I would also drop down a level to play it so the money wouldn't be huge.

But if anyone wants to pay me 10k/month while learning to play 6-max I will gladly do it :P

theres also more very good regs to deal with in six max.

Its a much more competitive game.

My plan is to get solid at FR and then switch.

This was my experience. 3betting light is common down to 50NL 6Max, something you rarely see at 50NL FR.

Same reasons - I'm naturally a TAG so FR fits my personality, I prefer less varience, casino play is FR. Plus with so many pros and semi-pros playing 6-max, why the hell would I want to play that? Give me a table full of chumps, any day.

Also, I like being the most aggressive player at my table. 6-max players play back at me too much and take me off my game. I know i will need to adjust to good, aggressive players, but at FR you don't start seeing tables full of them until 100NL+. I'm still in the micros where TAG ABC play gets the money.
