Opening from EP, playing 9 handed

Opening Guidelines for the first three spots in a nine handed game?

Adjustments for game conditions would be a bonus.

Nine handed games are found mostly in casinos, home games and small stakes online.

Re: Opening from EP, playing 9 handed

i personally would say, only pure premiums, i would actually even shy away from low rundowns such as 9876 and lower.

I wont play low double pairs, to me it is a recipe to get stacked.

Maybe like KK33, i might even consider folding TT22.

Re: Opening from EP, playing 9 handed

As above but I'm definitely playing at least single-suited rundowns from 4567 and above, though that may be a leak.

As to the gappers, they need to be double-suited for me to play with the gap at the top, say, 5679 minimum, bottom-gappers I'm playing everything from 3567 upwards.

Hands like 8876ds are potentially playable too but these benefit from cheap flops so it's a case of playing them when you have an EP limping range.

Low double pairs do awfully multiway and you're essentially quads-mining. A hand like TT99ds, though, is top-tier PLO sexiness and you'll struggle to prise those cards out of my hand preflop, any game, any stack depth.

Partly agree, probably play those low rundowns if there are regs picking on you on a low dry board.
if tons of fishes, maybe i would limp in with low RDs

I would think you need a strong balanced limping range from first 2 spots
