So I guess what you're saying is...the good players in that game should be pushing for a lower ante because it amplifies the bad players' mistakes? Kinda weird because it's all the good players pushing to make it bigger because the bad players put more money in the pot. Interesting take.

I think what DD is saying that it wouldn't really matter if the ante is 50 or 100 in a 3/6 game. The bad players are still gonna limp in with their 499 or 258r with all sorts of scary doorcards behind.
So by pushing for a larger ante you are decreasing your 3rd st. edge (assuming the increase doesn't make them play an even wider range).
Precisely, its the opposite of ICH9D's first example, the bad player is gonna play that small pair no matter what, would you rather give him 6:1 or 3:1? Even that example isn't great since the hand is fine to play in either spot but wolfram summed it up nicely.
In razz its the exact opposite, most fish don't understand relative hand value so when they bring it in with (47)K and it folds all the way around to a 3 who raises, they just fold even though they should almost certainly defend, in that case you'd rather the ante be huge since it magnifies the mistake.
