I have not been doing that well, but i do like theese games more than 10 player tables. There is more action more hands played, which i like.
Thing is, the players seem really aggressive on theese tables.
Is this because there are less players?
Should i play more loose and aggressive?
Are hands like K9 on suit good with 6 players?
you should be playing aggressive regardless if its 6 max or full ring. I could count on my hands the amount of times I call or limp during a sitting. But in general yes you do play more aggressive in 6 max because blinds come faster. This is the only game I play if I can help it, it fits my style very good and I can take advantage of the weaker players. Right now sitting at full ring not by choice.
before we can tell you if K9 suited is good we need to know position and action before you. I like doing squeeze plays with K9 personally but I don't suggest you trying that. If you are getting rocked in 6 max im guessing your hand selection and aggression are not the best.
im also guessing that you are not continuation betting on dry boards? basically if you have AK and the flop is something like K27 rainbow you should be betting that, or if its all low cards because it is unlikely it hit your opponent. You can lose alot of money by just check/folding your hands on flop and you lose alot when u let someone catch by not continuation betting.
these are all what they call holes in your game, again im assuming alot here and if this isn't you then please disregard.
