Why is there so much emphasis on 6 max tables here? Most of the tutorials etc. all talk about 6 max.

I would think 9 - 10 player tables would be the most popular.
But then, no one ever said I was real good at that there thinkin' thing.

I realize the odds change tremendously because a smaller portion of the deck is dealt out and there are fewer opponents. But I'm not sure which way that tilts the odds.

Should fairly inexperienced people play 6 max or full tables?

6 max is currently much more popular than full ring. It is typically a lot more aggressive and a lot looser. You are less likely to run into other players with monster hands when you have a decent hand.

Most people start at full ring and go to 6max later when they get tired of playing so nitty or tired of always getting coolered vs other monster hands at the full ring tables.
