Is FR vs SH a question of skill?

      Hi guys!

      I've been playing SH most of my poker "career", and kept thinking why my progress is so slow, taking in account that I have done quite a lot of PS.com article reading and watched many of session reviews on PS.com.

      Anyway, I switched to FR a few days ago, just out of curiosity (I've done it once or twice for a few hands, but always gave up quickly because it was quite boring, to be honest - in comparison to SH game, that is). Well, as I said before, I've been playing FR for a few days now and I'm really starting to think this is more "my style" of a game, especially regarding the fact that I never managed to get my VPIP/PFR as high as it should be in SH game.

      But I was also thinking, why am I doing better at FR...do you guys think that choosing between FR and SH depends on a "skill" a person has (basically my question is, is SH more "skill dependant" game than FR)? Or is it just other things that come into account?

      Thanks for your answers!

      Kind Regards,

      Jkob.
