I think I played this once when PokerStars first introduced the variation. Didn't do anything for me otherwise I likely would have played it more than once...lol

Sometimes, in my personal opinion, it almost seems they are trying to reinvent the wheel - put tons of money into developing these new variations, in hopes that something gains traction and then I wonder if the consumer doesn't end up paying for me it more in the end, if that makes sense. I am hoping they do some testing with groups to determine if it is worth adding anything new to their lobby.

Never played it, so I'd have to say I'm not surprised.

Not surprised. With different hand rankings and getting confused, I'm surprised it made it this long.

6+ Hold’em Spin & Go tournaments have been removed from the PokerStars lobby due to a lack of interest.
Does this surprise you at all?

No, I'm not surprised. Did not like these narrow ranges. But the last community tournament at PokerSars will be a 6+.

I dont mind the innovations. They have also had some games, that from the beginning were announced as time limited like Showtime, UnFoldEm etc. I think, it bring more recreational players into or back to the game, that there is an option to try something new and different.

UnFoldEm was very soft, so from a purely monetary standpoint I should probably have played it, as long as it lasted. But as Krista say, if your long term goal is to develop as a player, you also want to be careful, where you invest your time. So I only played a few sessions but won several buyins during those.

Ugh as a fat chinchilla I truly loved UnFoldEm I miss it that one was good, you are right it was very soft...just like my fluffy chinchilla fur which I am hunted for. Speaking of which I must run and hide now before I am turned into a chinchilla fur coat:vroam:

I've never even tried that format. I didn't get any interest in play that.

Been meaning to give 6+ a go but I'm already playing one form of cards at a moderate skill level LMFAO!!! Need to stay focused where I'm at.

Equities run closer in 6+Holdem than normal holdem.

Add to that a spin and go format with short starting stacks.

You get a combination that reduces the skill advantage between players significantly.

I know that it is perfect for the sites if they can take the rake and the players are in a almost lottery situation against each other.

So don't blame them for trying.

But the variance is already super high in normal Spin and go's so for me this combination seems almost impossible to be worth playing, if you not play only for fun.

And 6+Holdem is not even more entertaining with less cards.

Hi, I have tried it and I have mixed experience. I had doubled several times in a few rounds, but like other games, there was a losing streak after a while.

No not at all, why change it up, I think that power up should be eliminated as well. I am sure it is there to attract the younger gaming crowd to poker. Good luck with that, there attention span is that of a Gold Fish.

What is surprising, poker players like it or not but know how to count, and pokerstar hoped that not)))
