I don't remember going anywhere. Damn, I knew there was something wrong with those "vitamins" they gave me at the bar. Oh well...
On a related note: 6-max is awesome! A lot more fish and maniacs to play with. Everyone thinks second pair is the nuts, people 3betting like a gazzillion percent of their hands, and, overall, overvaluing their holdings. Oh, and, a lot shorter waiting lists.
Also, there are a lot more spots in a 6-max game that don't pop up that frequently or never in a FR game. A lot more 3betting, a lot more re-stealing, a lot more playing OOP, basically, it's a lot more involved game. In my opinion no one should play FR if they want to get better as a player. At least until NL $50 or so.
BTW, recently I have been dabbling @ $10 NL and noticed the games are a lot
more aggressive than $2 and $5 NL. Almost every one of my LP opens was 3bet, and a lot of the times I was c/r on the flop when I do my usual cbet. Is it that
big a difference?
