Simple question you can all probably help

It is probably simple stuff but i just want to know what the “max2” or “max3” means on the SitnGo games? cheerz

Thanks for the question goose1. So in fact the full name might be something like ‘SnG 6-Max 2’.

The ‘6-Max’ part refers to the common terms for a 6 seat table, see the definition here:

http://www.pokerology.com/lessons/full-ring-vs-6-max/

“The key difference between full ring and shorthanded cash games involves the number of poker players. Full ring is essentially a standard poker game where nine or ten players are seated. While some poker rooms offer a maximum of five seats in their shorthanded cash games, most are usually limited to a maximum of six seats, which is why they are commonly referred to as “6-max” tables.”

The final number, in our case: ‘2’ is simply used to difference other tournaments running at the same time with the same name, it has no extra meaning.

I hope this helps!
