Why does everyone seem to want to play 6-max instead of full (8) on FullTilt? (those seem to fill up most often)
Is it because of the PLO and NLH part games in the mix?

FR plo is incredibly boring it's more of a game of who can get the nuts and cooler someone who can't fold the 2nd nuts. Think about it this way, plo has 4 cards and 6 nlhe hands can be made from each plo hand. So 8-handed plo would be the equivalent of 8*6 = 48-handed nlhe. How many people would play 48max nlhe? Even 6max plo is like 36-handed and even 6-handed it's pretty standard to be folding the 2nd nut flush. I find HU plo to be a lot more fun just because there's more room to bluff and stuff rather than just waiting to hit the nuts.

I always get the sense in NLHE that people who play FR tend to be multitabling grinders playing 16 tables at a time and the entire play is so formulaic. It's like grinders playing against other grinders. The typical players per flop is like 19% and its basically blind stealing.
