Best website for micro limit full ring

I play play at Poker Stars and never see more than one table at 0.25/0.50.

Why is this? Do any other sites show this game as more popular?

Re: Best website for micro limit full ring

I have not played on the non-US sites since 2013, but I suspect that you are out of luck. Non-US players tend to prefer 6-max even more so than US players.

I just wanted to start by encouraging you to learn 6-max as well as you can. Strong 6-max players are always strong full ring players, but not the other way around. Tbh, focusing on full-ring makes it likely that you will never grow beyond solid/nit status in LHE.

I am not sure why 6-max is so much more popular online while live players hate shorthanded play and often refuse to play short. It is just cultural imo.

Also, since you are likely newish, I highly recommend focusing on no limit holdem. LHE is a sunken ship rotting at the bottom of the ocean. NL will always be popular. And there are way more good resources for learning NL than LHE. Catching up to us veterans in LHE is nearly impossible imo.

+1 for USA sites & focusing on other games.

Confident there are non-USA sites that offer phenomenal rakeback for LHE via propping (starting 6max, 9max, etc via min 2 table always = generally at least 1 full 9max in 15min with 2nd full 9max in 30min )

Not sure if that's possible at micro.

PS: Think best option is to play LHE + NL + PLO if possible at micro stakes. Think you can just Nit TAG hard @ NL + PLO until enough LHE Full games.

PS 2: Best option maybe to play on multiple sites @ same time (2-3)

OT: LHE is still best game ever as evidence by Sean Snyder Twitter

There are indeed excellent RB deals all over the place. The problem is that practically no-one outside of Stars is playing LHE. It was always more of an American game than a European one, which has become a serious problem for player population.

Nope, neither live nor online. I'm trying to be a magician now LOL. I don't regret the 8 years I spent on poker one bit though.
