Id like to know how many of you fold more hands than you play. Im very patient with my hands and fold alot. Should i be playing more hands or is smart to wait for something good instead of playing trash hands and hoping they either have nothing and fold or you get lucky and flop a 2 pair or something.
I definitely fold more hands than I play, (as long as it's not heads-up).
I play around 20-30% of hands on average, sometimes more and sometimes less (depending on opponents play styles).
Early position I like to fold a lot, and late position I will play a lot of hands.
I think, like you, patience is very important. That's why they call it Texas Fold'em!!
I also think for the more patient people: 9max is more suitable than 6max, as 9max requires a LOT more patience.
