I prefer 8 or 9. A couple of times I was a part of a 10 and even 11-player table in a live game and it was weird.

I have played in some home cash games that had 10-11 at the table. Too make it worse, they were mostly loose aggressive. It was like bingo or a lottery. Not enjoyable at all. Oh, and almost all the players were hardened gamblers. I got out fast with my skin still intact!

Hy, I prefer with max 8 players because 9 players is to much and I lose my concentration and 6 players it s a few players.
How do you prefer?

A few months ago, I would say that I prefer 6-max tables, because I was usually playing cash games, and these tables are the most played.

Now, I will say that I prefer 8-max or 9-max tables, because it's better to play tournaments in these tables; you will pass through the big blind position less than you would pass in smaller tables, and this means that you will have more time to think and to choose your best hands.

In my case, I prefer there to be 9 players, I think it's a good number to be able to play comfortably and make your rivals fall into your strategies thanks to the game of others.

I was initiated into tournament poker at ten player tables and that is the size I prefer. One of the big plusses is the low blinds to hands dealt ratio.

In MTTs one player. That means I have won.

How do you prefer?
I only like when there are 9 players at the table. For me, this is the most convenient format to which I am accustomed, and I do not consider other options, with the exception of freerolls.

Yes, I don't care how many players are at the table, the more the better I think the game was more interesting the main thing is that the players are not weak I don't like playing against weak poker players that's what I love I always want the game to be very interesting and how many people there are no difference in poker, the main thing is to have fun

I started playing online with Littlewoods, when there were ten players at a table, and I would much prefer that. Basically you have more hands from which to choose the ones you want to play.

For some reason I like to play with a small number of players at the table, optimally 6.

A full table table of 9 is my way of playing.

MTT 9. Standard.

In Sit&Go tournaments in the DoN format, I definitely prefer 6 players. In MTT tournaments, 8-9 players.

I like 8-9 people if there are too few, waiting for a strong hand to beat the opponent is no fun

in cash games I like to play at a table for six people and tournaments for nine people, I don’t like tournaments for six people although it’s strange, I guess.
