If your are playing live poker limit is the best in my opinion for lower stakes games. In most $1 $2 nl live games I have found there are to many ATC's playing to make it worth while. In limit you limit your risks and all you have to do is play your odds
. If you just focus on odds you will always in the long run make money. At least this is the case for me. I have made a average of $100 a session playing limit this way for 2 years now. Sure its boring but its money in the bank. If you can find a higher stakes NL game with no state made pot cap these games might be more profitable because of the lack of complete donkeys. In Montana where I am at the state has a pot cap on all poker games
even nl so a no limit game is really a $2-$150 game. Im not sure how other states do this. But this does not make for good poker.
