It's been a while since I've played these stakes. The .50/1 NL used to be loaded with players that only played premium starting hands. But since UB started this Jackpot foolishness, a lot has changed. Also, UB cut back on the non-Jackpot tables it seems.
At one time the players on UB (3 years ago and can't remember source) were rated as the better players. At these stakes you will see a lot of people just popping bets on the flop to try and take down the pot. Play solid poker and you should be able to have fun with these guys.
Lately on every site it seems that people don't think they need hands to make or call 4 - 5 BB bets. No size bet can get them off a draw or their hopes of hitting their over cards.
