6max vs 8/9max and how to switch?
I play mainly 6max (but tonight I choose to dabble at a full table)...
Now I noticed alot of differences between the 2 (as many of you may also have)...
-Faster pace of game speed
-More aggressive players
-More 3betting light (that actually work/or do not work, but it happens)
-Players in general give up the pots quicker in 3bet pots in 6max
-Cbets seem to get more credibility
-Steals/double barrels seem to work out (as your only up against 1 player usually)
-While you'll still have your more passive/calling station players at the games (It's alot easier to Cbet into 1 player rather than 3 players)
-More callers preflop (so you really need to tighten up your game)
-Less raises preflop, and more limp/calling raises preflop in general
-Over all more passive atmosphere (this was just what I noticed in the games)
-When they raise (and by "they", I mean the passive player at a full table, it really means I got you beat (I found that out the hard way, acouple of times )
-Less bluffing actually (or so I think)
-Less Cbetting (as they're more limp callers preflop, so you ain't about to CBET into 6 other players now are you)?
-You can fold more and wait for a premo hand compared to 6max where blinds come around quicker
-Slower pace of game speed
These are the things I noticed tonight, (and it's been like 3 years I'd say since I played full table rings). So my question is, If I'm more prone to raising preflop, BTN, C.O, H.J, and these don't work as I found out when playing a full table game (really fast ), because your going to be getting more callers pre, so what do I need to do...Are there any videos on here the talk about the differences between the 2 and how to adjust?
Is it ok to just limp more preflop when in 8/9 tabled players? Not ATC but more or less just over all limp and follow suit?
Any tip most welcome
