Maybe for nlhe players trying to play 'cap all rounds' online poker, that might be true. For the experienced limit player, limit games are money makers !! IMO that applies to holdem as well as stud format games.

Amen !! Amen !! Amen !!
3 of my 4 (all non-deposit) bankrolls continue to grow since I play ONLY limit ring games. The only exceptions are the CC low buy-in games when I have the time, regardless of the game being played. My 4th BR is stagnant only because I won it playing a nlhe tourney and never use it (I don't like the site).
OTOH... I've only played limit games profitably, without major nlhe style downswings, since '69... so what do I know ....
