I've actually played about 5k six max hands lifetime, long enough ago that I don't remember playing the hands in my db, but that's enough to present some evidence that the above quote is true. Also, intuitively, the facing-bet ranges should be much stronger in a lot of spots. That sucks because it eliminates one of the big edges vs weak players.

OTOH, that would imply that, because the ranges are stronger, rando-calling pure bluffcatchers at 6-max would be even less profitable than the sh*t-eating exercise that it is at HU. You might then assume the population would get a septic taste in its mouth and knock it off. But low-stakes poker populations aren't always that clever.

Re: Does HU ruin your 6-max game?

It's the same for me here, after playing heads up I no longer want to play anything else. I think that you just enjoy playing everyhand and seeing how it turns out. When I sit down in tournments I become bored because the action is so slow.

Re: Does HU ruin your 6-max game?

Have played mostly heads up for a long time. Having a hard time finding matches, so I popped into a few six max tables yesterday and promptly lost several buy ins.

Grumpy today, haven't decided if I want to tighten up PF and try and get better or just accept that I shouldn't play 6-max...
