This is a discussion on 6-max or Full Ring Cash games? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Which do you prefer?
I usually prefer to sit at full ring games, but usually because it means there is more money on the table.
I usually prefer to sit at full ring games, but usually because it means there is more money on the table. But I've started to play some 6-max and it seems the jump in HPH that you gain more than makes up for less money being on the table.
I started playing 6 max and it's pretty much standard for me now. Compared to 9max, there's just much more action but by that same token, you're also a bit more likely to spew chips since you'll be opening your ranges wider in 6max.
6 max it is, lots of advantages according to me.
More card options Hence more outs
Money is almost same on both options as not always will all 9 players enter a hand, so itís a better option to play 6 max.
Exclusively Full Ring for now with real money since I can play tight and feels safer while learning, but I want to try a little 6 max soon.
Now that I have been playing about a month, I changed my answer. I seem to be doing better at 6-max consistently now. I like the option to play a few more hands and other players are much looser and willing to call larger raises as there seems to be more bluffing and aggression at 6 max tables which more than makes up difference of paying a few extra blinds. But I still definitely try to find a table where the preflop action is not too aggressive.
