I play Full Ring and I'm not very good at 6-max...but I hear in 6-max you need to use a lot of aggression. Again, POSITION MATTERS. I never understood this until I posted my stats on this forum a week or two ago and had some players comment that I didn't focus on position very much. I changed up my style and now I seem to be winning a lot more. If you are the last one to act on every street (flop, turn, river) you will always have the upper hand!!
At micro, few players are aware or capable enough to notice how the other players play, so most have no idea how often you raise, limp, check-raise, enter posts voluntarily or anything else. So I tend not to give them credit until I've seen indications that they can. This does require watching all the hands and trying to figure out all the other players' styles, but that's something you nedd to do anyway if you want to improve as quickly as possible.
The advice about position is critical at micro. Because people tend just to play their hands, acting last is an even bigger advantage than at higher levels because the micro players are less likely to be tricky.
