I'm starting this thread as a place to share population reads for 6-max micro stakes fast-fold games. Population reads are especially valuable in fast-fold formats as you can start exploiting the population without waiting for HUD stats.

Share your population reads below!

I'll start.

I play NL5 6-max zoom on pokerstars.

I'm certain that the populations:
  • Opens too tight from all positions
  • Doesn't 3-bet enough
  • Folds to 3-bets too much
I'm fairly certain that the population:
  • Under-bluffs the river
  • Rarely bets for thin value

Fast fold poker definitely lends itself towards playing tight, so the point about opening to tight might be more valid for fast fold than regular 6-max tables. I will say though, than on balance you probably find more nits at full ring tables than the fast fold tables. The other points I think are valid for pretty much all microstakes cash games and certainly for 2-5NL. Learning to overfold in those spots, where your opponents basically always have it, will certainly make the game more profitable and less frustrating :)
