1, competing in the tournament Heads-up.:LOL:
9 is better for playing multiple tables, 6 is very fast.

Prefer six plus here. At the stakes I play, having less is not ideal from a rake standpoint.

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?
For some reason I prefer a table for 9 participants, but if 7 of them allow it, I’m happy to play one-on-one.👥

From 6 to 9, this is the most familiar format for me.

I think 8 players is fine. But there are some 6max tournaments that are good too.

I really think it's game type dependent what size table is the best (Which really means makes for the best games/most fun right? Because it's really subjective and up to personal preferences)

For Cash games I prefer 6-Max and or 2-Max (Heads Up) I think having fewer players at the table makes for more action and thus more active time at the tables. In my opinion I find 9-Max cash to be really boring. I don't really like playing Multi-way or only being able to open the recommended 10-12% of hands from early position.

For MTTs I actually prefer the opposite. I think 8-Max is the ideal table size. Keeps hands coming reasonably quick while also allowing for a little less variance than playing on the short 6-Max tables that some tournaments have.

Personally, I like to play when there are 6 players at the table, and in tournaments I prefer when there are at least 8 players at the table. I also really like to play 3 max, then I have to play almost every hand.

I like to play with nine players, this is a standard poker setup and you can use all the rules of the game depending on your position.

In most of the tournaments I participate in, there are 9 or 8 players. But my preference would be tables of 6.

Playing cash games I prefer 6 max tables but with MTT I like the 8 max format.

Reading other replies this looks like to be a popular choice with others too.

9 players because if 9 people are at the table highly chance to fish players among them, especially micro limit game
