I played about 1000 hands of 25nl full ring today and ran pretty well pulling in just over 3 buyins in 2 hours. 700 of these were normal full ring no limit, but the other 300 were actually pot limit. I didn't realize what kind of tables I opened and I was playing on 3 pot limit tables and wondering what was wrong with the slider and why my preflop raises were only $0.85, lol. I only figured it out after about 250 hands when I opened up Poker Tracker ring game stats and wondered why there were PL hands being imported. 300 hands later I'm up 1.5 buyins at pot limit.
So I take a break and decide to try out the 6 max tables with the intentions of leaving if I encounter some really aggro players or lose 1/2 a buyin. I was just getting ready to leave when the following 300+ BB hand took place:
Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players

MP showed 9 8 (a straight, Seven to Jack) and WON $0.40 (-$24.05 NET)
BTN mucked K T and LOST (-$24.45 NET)
SB mucked J A and LOST (-$5 NET)
Hero showed A Q (a straight, Ten to Ace) and WON $74.75 (+$50.50 NET)
My hand held and amazingly no one was on the flush draw. This is probably in my top 5 favorite hands I have ever played. After that I decided I am not ready for this kind of agression so I am going to stay at the full ring tables for a while now. I think I would be safer in my 6 max endeavors if I stay a buyin below where I am at in full ring. They play for stacks WAY to easily at these tables, imo. But I'm a nit.
Overall, another very successful day! Maybe this night shift thing helps me play in the mornings because I feel very awake until about 11:00 AM local time after work.
