Six-Handed Poker the New Norm at the Bellagio Casino

The Bellagio poker room raised the standards last week when it reopened with the installation of plexiglass dividers at every table, which allowed six-handed games to be played, and it also made the wearing of masks optional for players. New Norm at the BellagioThe use of plexiglass dividers enables the Bellagio to allow one more player to participate on each table over the standard five-hand[...]   Read more » Six-Handed Poker the New Norm at the Bellagio Casino

I insist, that situation has too much suicidal tendency! First, you are in a country with millions of infected people with erratic measures to defend. To arrive at a table, with or with not plexiglass you have to travel, enter the casino, sign up and go through lounges and people. Then you have to stay there a lot of hours...have no sense!

I have never liked this 6-handed game because it is too fast when you play at other tables and my skill level is too low to advance at the final table of tournament. It takes a lot of ambition to learn and then prove your abilities.

I know that life cant stop now and that people need to do things that they like or that they need,especially when now is summer and they want to go on sea,to go out every night when is hot and so on!but when you make rules,then make same for everybody!ofcourse its great that they take care for dealers and they need to have this protection,but then also players need it when they seat for hours!

I also don't like 6 max , at least until I learn how to play better on 6max cash games , or 6max tournaments . I have to get improved so as to be able to play these games , until now whenever I try I get crash , zoom 6max higher stakes , 6 max satellites , 6 max tournaments , 6max cash games , lol Smile

That's why nowi like 9max tbls , easier for me to play there . I guess there are players like me at live games that also like 9 max only tournaments , if things get better they will be able to play them again . Ifnot , thanks god there is online poker , they can play high stakes or all other stakes there , and have fun and win big Smile

Well, I understand all the people desires and needed, I´m one of them. But to enjoy the sun, the summer, and the sea; you need to be alive! Priority question. About the six-handed, obviously that is too much different of full ring. There you have to be more aggressive, and makes a more loose decision with your ranges

I am a tight player I would say , so 9max cash games or tournaments are better for me . On 6max so easily and quickly you are on tough spots , ready to lose a buyin easily , or win one . I lose there a lot , have seen some bad beats also , so i am conservative with this thing , 6 max is not for me for now , hopefully in the future . i like fast action , but ofcourse if I know what to do , I don't like losing money , not nowadays , lol Smile

I don't like to lose money and no quick action. I also prefer the tables of 9 players. An probation in which learning how to work with 6 hands is very beneficial, but i don't like learning at this moment. Instead, you can play directly without detours.

Well antony321, in six-handed there is tight and loose players (and maniac, nit, etc), but all the game is more aggressive and you can/have to play with a wide range of cards. That is a consequence of the less chance of a better hand than yours. And as you know, more villains in the table, better cards in the hand

six-handed poker is ofcourse much faster and all depend is in some tournament situation or its cash game!on tournament blinds can go very fast and if you dont get some good hand in first hour,you can be out very fast!but all of us are different and we are lucky that in todays poker world we have something for everybody!

As you know, tournaments are a particular table of cash where you can´t replace your stack when you are beaten. hahaha... seriously, the difference between full ring and six-handed are constant in the cash games and the tournament. More speed, more aggressive, and your medium hand maybe a premium. I good to my kind of play, specially good to Double or Nothing

6max I can lose money instantly , the greter losses on my bankroll and momney invested or played in one day where in zoom 6max , also tournaments of 6max or 6max satellites or 6max sngs , even the shootouts kind of lolm, which ofcourse it's another format , low stack/blinds good shove fold startegy and chart is really needed . A lot of bluffs in 6max , greater ranges , more hands to shove , many more traps ... Not for me .. I play very simple poker , almost bingo kind of , lol , I hit on flop , I play , I do't I am ready to quit , bluffs not common for me , successfull bluffs rarelly , with this kind of game , better stick to 9max , everywhere , lol Smile Also in 6max blinds move faster than 9max ,, less hands to see , less bigger cards to wait to play , stack get cripled too fast , you need to play , cannot wait .... Smile

Excuse me antonis321, but I think that you lost money in Zoom by the speed of the game. I don´t play that, but I know that is something that seems the Snap game, where the tables change in each hand. There you can´t make any adjustment to the kind of players because they change, so you just can play on medium mode (no tight, no loose) and pray for your money!

Zoom ( pokerstars) and Snap ( 888 poker ) is the same game but with other name. Full Tilt he also had a name in the past but nothing is different between them. Good players make money fast at 6-player tables and at 9 it's good for us i think.

I mean on different type of poker,but also is it online tournament or live tournament,is it cash game where you can just go from table or its some fast version of poker!so everything is different and every way of poker can be good,just depend what you like to play!but 6 hand poker on online tournament can also be very good!

Besides zoom that I play nowadays , i used to play 6max cash games when I began , Limit holdem , rarely No limit Holdem . Then I also had losses , not many everyday cause I was depositing little money every time/day , but yes I also then had losses , it's not the zoom format to blame Smile

Snap poker doesn't have the 9max 2nl , that's why I like zoom , in the past it also used to have 5nl , it has disappeared months ago .
I wonder , with the isolation and the increased number of players online 1-2 months ago , why Pokerstars didn't try to bring 5nl zoom back , or try bringing a 10nl 9max , why not ?? So many players on zoom then , it was a mistake of them not to do so , the same mistake as the one they make nowadays trying to introduce a extra ante to the zoom tables . Sucks .

I insist with the kind of difference if you make a comparison between the same kind of speed. Fewer players you have in a table, more aggressive you have to be. Your range of hands miss a position (you don´t have UTG range), so your range in early position is more loose. That´s the real difference if you compare the same condition...

I like 9max only , for the time being . 6 max is so fast , has somuch action , and bluffs , you could say i am more kind of bingo player , not so the bluff guy , or the one with the good reading players skills , or the right bets depending on the flop , lol .. Anyway , on the micros , cash games or tournaments they call ATC , lol .

The greatest majority of the players like to play 6max , undoubtfully , I think this is the most usual format of cash games in the casinos , but for tourneys I think it's the same that i also like , the 9max .

Ofcourse 6max is better than 5max or 4 max, good that they invent ways to bring back more people per table in the poker rooms Smile

Same like me with 9max, but sometimes i register for a single cash table with 6 players. Poker is for smart guys and we are in the century of speed. With some training we could learn more and will manage to play more easily.

Me too! I like Full Ring or his cousin 8 max. Only played in six max when Party Poker offers some good freeroll, so I play there with the same chart than FR but I eliminate the UTG position. Is not the same than build a specific chart to this kind of game (because you should be more loose) but is a good support to play it.

I don't like situation of online poker at this moment and the players are much fewer with every day. Something is happening and poker rooms should focus on profit of players, not just on their commissions. People are tired because they have no earnings...
