holy shit. Well I've had friends tell me 6-max is where the money is and all that jazz so I've done stints there, but my results were absolutely horrible. First off I can't even do as many tables (and how someone can 24-table at 6max is beyond me) and even when I cut back on tables I just had a lot of trouble. There are just so many more loose players and for example I ended up playing for stacks with TT preflop against an absolute maniac. He had undercards. So obviously when you get those people it's not that difficult, but I've had trouble with with the slightly less aggressive players but still way more aggressive than anything you'll find at FR. At FR you can sit back and wait for a hand but 6max first off the blinds will hurt you more second off even though people are raising and sometimes 3-betting extremely light, it seemed they played extremely passive when I took any action, thus making it difficult to extract value. Now as I said I only played a few sessions, but I had a really hard time there and I've had pretty good success at full ring, so I may try another session or two again soon to see how it is, but I'm pretty sure I'll stick to full ring.
Oh and you sure the 6max 100nl doesn't earn more? The 2+2 thread I mentioned earlier has 100nl FR earning 0.38 VPPs/hand. From what I saw in 6max there was a lot lighter raising and 3-betting, and considering a standard raise with one caller would make the pot $8 and give everyone a VPP, I'd think it was closer to 0.5 VPPs/hand. But I guess I'd trust people who play there over my guesses.
