What size of table do you prefer?
How many seats do you prefer to have on the tables you play on, and why does this have your personal preference?
This probably depends on the website/place as well. (10, 9, 8, 6, 4, heads-up, others..)
In what setting (cash-games/tournaments)?
For cash games I tend to do better at full ring (9 player) tables, so naturally this has become my preferred format. Variance and sample size is always an issue of course, but I have not had that much success with 6-max, and I have seen no reason to force the issue. 6-max is the most popular cash game format online, but if you are really serious about poker, then probably your future is in either live games or tournaments, and 6-max is not common in neither of these formats. So for me it is better to practice full ring.
For tournaments you pretty much have to take, what is offered, which on most sites is mainly 9-max with some 8-max and 6-max formats mixed in. The more short handed formats are great, because they allow you to get involved in more hands per blind level without increasing the duration of the tournaments. However I would prefer, if the final table still began at 9 players especially for 6-max MTTs.
Good morning everyone.
I really like Mtts and cash games in 6-Max format.
I remember that when I started playing poker in 2018, I found games in 6-Max, more difficult and now I changed my opinion, it's a format where you can identify more villains, those who play strong hands or weak hands.
I prefer to play cash game because I consider it a fairer and much less frustrating game, where luck has a much smaller role than in Mtts, where sometimes you spend a lot of time without receiving good cards and when you come you have 30BB sometimes less and when a villain goes All in and you call too far ahead you lose.
When I play tournaments I prefer to play 9 players tables, because I never had good results playing 6 players table. I always thought it was because I wasn’t aggressive enough, but in the last few months I am also loving to play HU tournaments
I like 8 or 9 tourneys way too much. That's not hard to me to play in heads-up or 3-max Sit n go's but I like to see the full table and it's sometimes easier to understand some of your opponents' tactics.
Conquering ACR tourneys and cash-games
I haven't played in a 9 man sit and go in a long time. Playing 6max turbos has improved my game tremendously. My ROI would definitely go up at a larger table, but I think that my per hour would go down.
For Cash games I prefer 6 max and for tourneys is a 9 persons table for sure, don't know why really but I feel really comfortable playing MTTs with a full table on MTTs that are 6-max table just can't get it right hehe I guess more people means more action every time and that is good for tourneys is more fun for me that way
Hi! I like most tables 8-9 max. Worse tables 6 max, I'm already not very comfortable on this. But anything less is generally difficult for me. I like a smooth, tight game, I find it difficult to play on small tables . This applies to all types of games. Maybe I don't have enough knowledge for this level of play yet.
I like to play 6 in cash game because it allows me to better manage my opponents when I decide to play an aggressive game. but on a mtt I like to play at 9 because it reduces the effect of losses to the blinds. we can wait and choose these starting hands well.
I've always loved 6-max tables. You play more hands, see more flops, and analyze more. You are in good shape all the time. But once I heard during the broadcast of the poker championship that a certain poker professional only plays a couple of hands per hour. Then I got to thinking. You don't need to play many hands to become a winner. It's much more important to win a couple of hands. So if you are a tight player 9-max tables are perfect for you.
I donít pay much attention to it, I love this game no matter the number of players at the table. It is best to play when there are only two players at the table, and recently there were 6 or more of them ...
IN my case, speaking only of tournaments I prefer them with 9 or 6 players, then it is a matter of adapting, the smaller the table, the faster the game and the easier the reading of rivals, the larger the table, the more difficult to read.
I used to perform badly at 8,9 handed MTTs, but, after starting to play a little aggressively, I make most of the opponents fold, so it didn't matter to me from then afterwards. Also, do checkout Cardschat 30 day poker lessons. It will make you not care about how many handed a table is.
