but is it recommended for beginners or should we 'master' FR tables first?.....Not normally recommended for beginners but there are SOOOO many fish at 2nl 6max tables you should be fine do you need a bigger BR for 6max, if so how many buy ins compared to FR would you suggest? maybe a bit, 30 buy-ins for a level is fine, 25 probably fine for 2nl.....is the varience greater on 6max? yes, a bit...can i still play a tag abc game or would i have to open up abit more....you can still play a TAG game, think if it as FR with the first 3 seats removed, and see my starting hands below
is my starting hand chart relevant for 6max or will i have to find another chart specifically for 6max....I use these opening ranges for 6max (pasted from another thread I commented in)
These is my opening range for 6max. You should be stealing from the BTN with a wide range.
UTG: 22+, AJs+, AQo+
MP: 22+, ATs+, AJo+, QJs+, KJs, A2s-A5s
CO: 22+, A2s+, ATo+, 76s+, KTs+, QJo+
BTN: 22+, A2s+, A2o+, 76s+, K9s+, Q9s, 98o+, 86s+
In the SB I'll steal with the CO range. When I am in the blinds facing a single raise I generally try to avoid calling (although some situations clearly warrant it like setmining vs EP nit opens) and either 3b or fold instead.
is there just as many fish (including me) on 6max as there is on FR?....still loads of fish at 2nl dont worry about that
what format will i learn best on?.....what do you guys prefer and why?....thanks
