Hello there,

What I am trying to do here is to adjust the sng course (which refers to 9 players tables) to 6 players tables.

For instance, the bubble for 9 players takes place when 4 remain at the table whereas for 6 players the bubble comes into play when 3 players remain at the table.

I am currently playing 6-turbo and my question is whether should I apply the bubble strategy when 4 players remain (which is what the course teaches) or when 3 players remain (which is the actual bubble for 6 players)?

In other words, should I consider 6-turbos as 9-turbos where three players have been eliminated during the early phase or not?

Thanks in advance

The bubble strategies apply to the actual bubble. In 45 man SNGs 7 are paid, so the bubble occurs when there are more players left. With 6 max games you have to adjust your strategy to account for the looser play that is general in that format. Some hands that you would fold in a full ring game, you should be playing ina 6 max game.

Hope this helps
