Really turn on afterburners when you get one of monster starting hands. Pocket pairs AA through JJ are extremely strong in a game with few opponents. They are much more likely to hold up unimproved in 6-max. Also, because your opponents typically play looser and see more raises you'll get a lot of action at times.
Strong hands such as Ak, AQ, AJ, and KQ ( suited and unsuited ) need to be played strongly! Firstly, there's always chance of winning hand unopposed. Secondly, if you hit on flop you likely be in lead. And if you have position after flop, your pre-flop raise opens up many deceptive options depending on table's actions.
In this introductory segment we've taken a look at differences of starting hand values versus a regular full ring game. In future articles we'll explore other areas such as post flop play, blind play, and bluffing.
