Hi hendo30!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you familiar with many of the options that PSO has to offer.

It really could be either. 6-max tables are more aggressive than full ring, due to the blinds hitting more often. It could be that they suit your game better.
6-max will fit a looser, more aggressive player better, full ring will fit a tighter player better.
The key is to find the type of game and style that matches with a players ability best.

Good luck at the tables.

Welcome hendo,

Some weaker players give away the strength of their hand by the raise size. Noticing utg+1 was loose is good and then consider do they normally raise 6x? Some players may make a stronger open early position maybe 4x but this is not giving you any reads on the hand strength.

Good luck in your training.

It would depend on the game type (cash/tourney/level of game, etc) and the stack sizes.
However, I do agree with Forrest Five, that this could very easily be a bet tell.. and if so, I'd fold the JJ immediately.
