      I have noticed on party poker that even on NL4 cash games almost every player is using some sort of strategy. Folding the majority of their hands and raising 4 times the big blind when they have a good hand/good position. When the majority of players are using a similar strategy is it still possible to make a profit? Are there any sites where players are actually playing too many hands (or making the mistakes talked about in some of the strategy articles)? Any advice would be appreciated.

      They are making lots of mistakes, you just aren't good enough to notice that. Don't just sit at any random table and table select a bit, that's important even at micros these days.

      Thanks, I'll try and select which tables I sit at more carefully.

      I've played a bit of NL4 FR on Party. Players suck big time... Just because he follows a chart and some betsizing doesn't mean he's good.

      you can actually make money even with 1 or 2 fish at the table, "crushing 50NL" is a really good video series. You'll make more money off peoples postflop mistakes than preflop too. Often I'll see a table of people with stats that look really good preflop but see them losing stacks in really bad spots

      I also found Partypoker NL4 to be quite frustrating, since I moved to Pokerstars i've had a much better time.

      Yeah i've noticed that there are more fishes at nl10 then on NL4 actually. I guess people that are here to gamble don't like to play the micro micro limits. But that still doesn't mean that people on nl4 are any good. Theres a reason they're playing nl4 after all.

      Personally i don't like to play FR with a bunch of nits on the table, but on SH table at start if you table select even at nl50 you get at least 1 50+ VPIP fish per table. And in case im playing like 50 hands on specific table an there are just tagish regs on it i just switch tables. Not that its impossible to make money out of them, but in case you have a position of 50vpip fish your going to make 3 times the amount then from a decent reg.
