      Yeah I wouldn't expect much change. I've played up to $20 and never run into a significant number of good players.

      im playing 26$ right and they are beatable ... but you need to adapt ... but i think that 6,5$ is just fish heaven so it should be no problem

      Thanks everyone.

      Maybe now i can use the resteal charts. Because on the lower limits thats impossible to steal one raiser, they are always ready to go all in when he open raises.

      May i expect to find some weak-tight players who give up easily from their blinds? Or this players are usually on the higher limits?

      fok resteal charts... 6,5$ is donk fest... just play value poker... good hands play agresive for value and that is all you need... there are not many thinkings players

      Yeah, this is typically a great place to play pure value poker... I don't bother restealing too wide because idiots call loose, but value shoves and good solid play will get rewarded nicely at these limits... you'll get regs... but any good reg won't be at this limit for too long...

      Good luck

      Well, today i played 2 sets.

      Every table there was a regular. In one table, there was 3 :s_mad: I took a look at sharkscope, and they all are huuge winners, with $10k+ profit. What hell they are doing at these limits?

      Anyway, i spot a lot of donks, but even these donks are more tight in average. I see a lot of action with KKxAA. Now i dont know if its profitable to go all in with AK or QQ against unknown at the early phase. What do you think?


      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $6.00+$0.50 Tournament, 25/50 Blinds (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      UTG (t5440)
      MP (t1500)
      CO (t1555)
      Hero (Button) (t1395)
      SB (t1170)
      BB (t2440)

      Hero's M: 18.60

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K:diamond: , A:diamond:
      1 fold, MP bets t150, 1 fold, Hero raises to t450, 3 folds

      Total pot: t375


      Whats the best thing to do here? Raise like i did or call it and see the action postflop since we have position?

      On the lower limits this is definitly a raise or even a push, but here i dont know.

      as others said, play only for value, EXCEPT at the bubble, at $5 and $6.50 even donks start to care a little bit about the result, and regulars are weak-tight by definition(all micro stake regulars are weak tight), so it becomes profitable to go loose agressive at the bubble to acumulate chips and have bigger chance for more first place finishes. That is the only thing that you can profitably change in your game when moving to $6 IMO.
