      I sometimes play nl cash 6 max, just for the purpose doing something else than sng hypers.

      I see a lot of different open raising sizes nowadays. 2.5x 3x 4x I normally raise 2.5x and on the sb I raise 3x I like to play somewhat lowball with mostly a 45% cb on the flop in general.

      should I raise 4x early positions than later positions 2.5 and 2x. What should my steal raise on the sb be? please advice from the pro's the specialists please!

      Thanks a lot for your help

      Hi AngelFace,

      How much money are you buying in for? Are you playing a small or mid stack game or are you playing with 100+ BBs?

      Normally I would advise that if your UTG/MP ranges are tighter/stronger you open 4x. And from CO 3x while BTN can be 2.5x for stealing purposes. From SB making it 3x is fine.

      Of course we should always adjust our raise sizes based on the opponents we face. So with a recreational guy (or two) in the blinds we can make 3x on the BTN or even more.

      Thanks for your response,

      I might do a session one time with you cause even it is not my main game I play to play well. I know that short stack need a different strategy than deepstack. My game is fulltilt 00.5 0.10 ct game with a maximum buyin of $10 that would be 100 bb. I am using 20-30 buyins What should I use at the table for buyin here? using good bankroll management too as additional question

      thanks again for your response in advance,

      Hi again Angelface,

      You can also attend the free coachings that I host on the weekend (Sundays). More information can be found here: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/coaching/178575/.

      I have added you to the community tool and we can talk via that about private coaching.

      For 6 max games, especially at first, I would recommend that you have at least 40 to 50 buyins. So if you have 20-30 buyins for 10nl it may make more sense to drop to 5nl until you build your bankroll.

      I would also recommend that you buy in for 100 BB and play the big stack strategy.

      Best of luck at the tables,

      Bogdan
