I personally like to play 6 handed because you get to see 1 more hand per orbit. And it feels like the odds of busting out is higher in a 5 handed position because you have to widen your range.

The first consideration with 11 left is ICM not 6 or 5 handed.
The second is: who is on my table and what are their stack sizes? I want to be able to steal blinds and call vs short stacks that is far more important than 1 more hand per orbit.
When we focus on things like one more hand per orbit we are thinking about card dependent actions when we would be better off using ICM and proper aggression to get chips we do not need a hand to win
Hope this helps

I’d rather the 5 handed table. Like to see more hands and forces you to play more since you have blinds more. Also get the button more often to steal the blinds. Always find it better with smaller tables.
