larger games is where you start off

it's insane trying to learn the basics in a small game. The small game is all about mindgames. You want to pick up basics, you play in the big ones.

for new players 9~10 player games are better.
People play tighter and thus u learn to control yourself more (and not play every hand).
Small games have higher risk factor due to Blinds (and antes if applicable).

I'm a starter too... it's more fun with 3-4 players due to the action but 9-10 player games is where u pick up the ropes.

in large games i can only play the top 30% of hands and still it may not be the best possible hands.

I like the loose play in small games and also the speed of the games. large games are soooo slow grrrr....in 9 player games sometimes i zzzzz

i bot this book on poker tells...and i think its easier to practice it in small games where we can all study each other's faces.

well, learning tells are kinda for advanced players imo. First of all it's overrated, because anybody can give fake tells. 2ndly, fundamentals of the game far outweighs the importance of picking off tells from opponent.

Poker, like golf, demands patience and concentration. It's not realistic to be playing most of the hands you are dealt.

I shit talk at the tables no matter whether I have a good hand or a bad one and drink heavily while playing so people can't get a tell :D

actually, the logic is in reverse.

In a large game where you don't play as many hands, you get more time to observe others after you've folded, giving you greater opportunities to spot tells anyway.

Nothing wrong with playing just the top 30% of your hands. You're only bored if you don't pay attention to hands you're not involved in. And if that's what you're doing, maybe going for tells isn't your best strategy.

i have an on and off again game at my house played with my close friends. They have practically no poker experience and think pretty much like you.

Thing is, I have a pretty hard time resisting the urge to continually felt them(i don't want to take their money). Bluffing is slightly advanced play. When you're unfamiliar with the fundamentals, every bluff is blatantly obvious.
