if im playing larger limits i always like the 9 or 10 person cash games ofcourse because im a tight player who wits for quality hand....therefore i like the small and BB to hit me as less as possible........and onn micro cash games ill play 6 handed because its fun to loosen up your game becuase you can with six ...actually i won 1 dollar on jungle poker and turned it into about 11 playing 6 handed but then lost it all tooo lol

I love playing shorthanded no matter what stakes, it's more about playing the people than playing the cards in my opinion; whereas in 10handed games it's more about sitting back and waiting for good hands - that's how I see it anyways.

To me, it's completely a question of my mood. If I want action and full contact and/or if I don't have much time, I choose short handed tables. Otherwise, when I'm in the mood of strategic thinking and all the time in the world is mine, I like to play at 9/10-handed tables.
And - if you're kind of a bullying player, short handed tables might be the better choice for you.

re: Poker & six handed or 10 handed?
I prefer 6 handed tables because it's easier to keep track of 5 opponents than 8 opponents.

I find 6 players is better since you see more hands and usually more action, also at 10 players you usually take more bad beats.
