Does the number of people at your table matter?

Oh yes it does.

Lets assume you are on a 6max table. you are under the gun, and you have AK suited, so obviously you raise to say, 4BB. Assume the next two fold, now you only have the dealer and the blinds to deal with.

Now imagine you are at a 9 player table and the same situation occurs. Instead of only having the dealer and the blinds to deal with, you now have 3 extras to deal with as well, which means a lot more chance of your hand being beaten.

The point is, the more people, the more risk.

Another point is that it is very hard to take notes and concentrate on 9 people at once, i find 6 is much more managable.
