Its when the tables get below 6 players that my game begins to lose its compsure. I easily find mysself on either side of the spectrum: playing too many hands and getting gouged; or not playing enough and getting blinded out. In cash games I struggle with this too but this is mainly in regard to tournaments because thats mostly what I play. For players and under, how much should I adjust my preflop playing ranges?
Why do the pushin when the donkey'll do the pull'n
When you get 6 handed it becomes a lot of luck. You catch cards and your hands stand up or you are dead and get beats. The blinds move so fast you just need to pick some hands and go with it. A lot of people use push charts but I've never been a fan. I think shoving too much takes away ways you can win pots. I'd really open my range short handed to Ax, Kx, any pair, and any two face cards.
