      Stupid question but the HILO articles that are provided by PS are nice.. and I assume they are for FLFR which would be like 8 handed? So just wondering how can we adapt to play at tables that arent full sometimes theres like 2-4 people sitting at 2/4 & 3/6..also what about playing HU all opponent/read dependant?.. should we play a little looser preflop but then tighten up as we progress through the streets and watch our opponents hands and try to put them on something from what information we have + what we know about them (since NL + FL, SH both are very read dependent I assume the same) ?

      It's very read dependant business. You can bet worse hands for value than you can in FLR, and high pairs become a lot more profitable since most pots are contested HU. Aggression begins to pay off as well, since it's usually the one who bets his low draw who drags down the pot when draws miss, so raising and reraising with gutshot + lo draw against an apparent unmade low, checkraising high hands and such begin to be common business.

      It's a different beast, but if you have ever played short handed hold'em or PLO, the changes should be obvious. Bet first in, bet last out.
