  • Six-handed table


    Six-handed table, what does it mean, the table where can play only six persons? Or I am wrong?

    Thank you!

      6 handed tables are tables which go to a MAXIMUM of 6 players. most "full ring" tables are 9 or 10 players (on Stars, a normal full ring is 9, but some events like double up SNG have 10 as a full table).

      You can have a 6 max cash game table, or a 6 max MTT/SNG game.

      Either of these events may have FEWER than 6 players at certain points, but the table is "full" when 6 are seated.

      There can be some tactical changes you need to make in your game if you play at a 6 max table, as the blinds tend to come around faster. It is important to recognize the adjustments when you do sit at a 6 max table, rather than a full ring.

      Hope it helps.

          As far as I know you should play more hands, as someone mentioned earlier, the blinds come around faster. And you only have a max of 5 other players that can have a better hand then you, instead of 8-9 players.
