6max or 9max

Changing format and really like both 6max and 9max sngs... My roi in both is ~5% so it's not clear which im better at.

i'd say i honestly like them both the same, but have tried playing both at the same time, pretty much ruling that out as i find it gets confusing. Also probably more efficient to specialise in 1.

So what are all the arguments for playing 6max or 9max?

i've been wracking my brains and here's what i've come up with so far...


runs up to 5ks

if you game select, you get way more hands vs the desired fish

more hands per $raked

slightly faster

can play hypers for insane volume


lots of bad players barely need to game select

can play way more tables if they're running

more situations for bad regs to make mistakes (3 extra positons)

(i assume) higher roi due to longer games so smaller downswings

fish more likely to return due to 2 runner up prizes rather than 1

good preparation for final tables

DISCUSS!! throw everything you've got at me! baring in mind... i highly doubt i'll ever play stakes higher than 50-100$ so the fact that in 6maxes we can play 5ks is pretty much irrelevant to me unless something huge changes.

Re: 6max or 9max

6max has more postflop play.
9max has more bubble play.

Other than that, I have always found them to be very similiar.
