Because of this I think 6 max is actually easier because people call down and stack off lighter. I may be wrong so I wonder what other people think about that.
I'm starting to think the same.
I've stopped playing FR twice now, and both times its been on the tail-end of a brutal d/swing, i've then moved to 6max and instantly, and i mean instantly, turned things around.
It's obv variance thats got me to jump ship from FR, but there comes a point where you get totally sick of bein shown the nuts constantly, your big pairs only getting action when your beat etc etc i'm sure I just run bad at FR but my edge must be that much bigger playing 6m that I can run the same but level it out by outplaying the player pool in marginal spots. Like since i started playing more 6m I can remember plenty of cooler hands, so its not like I'm running absolutely god-like, but nevertheless I am up and have made back everything +some that I lost at FR
At 6max you'll see AI calls and players calling off 3 streets with allsorts and just think, fk, that happens like never at FR but its already happened twice this session.
Was kinda waffling on there as I dont know how to write down what I think of the differences, but I think 6m is definetly easier than FR, its just easier to get value off of worse hands imo, even the fishie villains at FR nowadays know that you cant stack off with middle pair, but when those fishie villains get bored of being tight they move to 6m and COMPLETELY over adjust to playing SH, I see calls everyday where i just think WTF were you thinking there lol
