I thought I'd try out a new look for my blog. Unfortunately I forgot to save the old template first, so my blogroll got deleted in the process. I can't remember everyone who was on it, so if I'm missing you just leave a comment! Also leave a comment of your opinion on the new look.
Other than that 6max has been going exceptionally well. I thought I would have significantly less volume but that's not the case after running some numbers on hands/hour. I try to put in a few sessions with 6 tables to work on stuff a few times a week and the rest of the time I'm able to easily keep up with 12 tables and if my brain is working even as many as 18 - leading to actually more volume than FR.
It's pretty much turning out to be my best month ever and I haven't really noticed any significant variance. Apparently 6max variance is supposed to be much much higher than in FR because the game is more aggressive, but I think the whole thing is a bit overrated for micro games. I think this is due to the fact that variance is reduced by having a higher winrate, and my 6max winrates are 2-3 times higher than what my FR equivalents are. I can see variance being a bigger issue at small and midstakes where winrates are going to converge a little closer to the FR winrates.
So far it's around 75% 6max, 25% FR and will probably be close to 100% 6max next month. I'm having a bit of an issue with my mouse so if anyone has advice I'd love to hear it. I have a wireless bluetooth based Logitech Revolution MX which has, by far, the best configuration of any mouse I've ever seen for poker and gaming and general browsing. The problem is that it's starting to freeze for half a second every once in a while which is kind of bad when you're trying to multitable.
Edit: A fun 50NL 6max hand I played yesterday. Even though it's spew I like to call it a soul read. Action plan: c/f turn. Actual action and read: "Hey wait, this guy is FOS. Arrr-in for value?!?" =)
