re: Poker & Tips on getting back in ?
Since you are a 6-max, micro player, play some rings.
Stick to what you are familiar with. Tournaments require different strategy than ring games, so I don't think it's a good idea to go switching back and forth from that.
I started out at 6-max micros myself, and it took awhile to adjust to tournament strategy. Full ring games are different creatures, and tournaments are way different and many levels (blinds increase, you have to eliminate people, you don't get to table select, stacks get short, the payout structure is way different, etc.).
So I suggest you keep it simple and concentrate on your preferred game. 6-max is like concentrated poker, and I think it really does a great job at teaching you the tricks of the game. In full ring you can sit back and be lazy, but in 6-max there's more activity so you're forced to make more decisions, which (right or wrong) help one to better understand the game.
Once you're comfortable and feel like expanding your game
go ahead and try tournaments or whatever.

Starting next saturday I have two weeks off for the holidays and I'm looking to get some hands in (I play 6max cash on stars, mostly 2nl but some 5nl). What do you think I should do to get my brain back into poker mode ?
Should I just dive back in head first ?
Should I just about start from scratch and review the basics ?
Should I review some of my winning sessions ?
Any other ideas ?
Thanks a bunch
