Most of cash game players are gamblers. in fact, it will be stupid to try to bluff them, because they could call you with any hand, sometimes they are calling the raise and reraise with J-T or even less!
So, the best way to play cash game is to be solid and patient and wait the good opportunity to win some nice pots.
I got a great success in my real cash game career adopting the strategy of ''The mouse and cat''. I was always waiting for my opponents’ mistakes, who are not long in arriving because of the stress, tiredness, or because of the desire to bluff me, or simply because of the gambling mentality, which push some players to do a big mistakes.
So, you just have to throw the fishhook and wait for the fishes to arrive.

I think this is a good and effective strategy. In my opinion, the best option is to trap my opponents. It really gives me pleasure.

I think, that really depends on, what cash games you are talking about. 2NL online play pretty different from say 100NL, and live games are a completely different animal again.

I agree with the person above, who says about luring a person into a trap, it really requires skills, and from this you get real pleasure.

I presume you are talking about some live cash games that you play.
Online I very rarely see players of this kind over micro-level. Much more often in tournaments.
You are suggesting to play like a nit and then let people bluff against your good hands.
Where do you find these easy games?

Hi! The advantage of cash games is a slightly lower variance compared to a large MTT, where the number of participants reaches several thousand. However, as a rule, there are a lot of regulars in cash games, especially at high limits, with small field, I think this is a rather complicated discipline.

90% of players playing this game loose money in the long run. Just got to admit this and work on you're game.
You can call it gambling, being a calling station or whatever you like, and you will find the same players in cash, mtts or sngs. The games have different rules and you got to respect different baselines and adjust youre strategies accordingly. You can be good at mtts but will get destroyed in cashgames and vise versa. Sure if you crush nl100 you might be able to compete in midstakes tournaments, but people who play 150 tourneys a day will make minced meat out of you.
Just playing tight as OP suggests will get you trough most microstakes games with a ok winrate, but as you move up in stakes you will start to struggle with that strategy. It's not 2008 anymore, people have gotten a lot better.

I think that to succeed at the cash tables you need to have a good strategy ... and the strategy that you mention is good as long as you are playing at the levels of (0.05 / 0.10) or even (0.10 / 0.25) since In these levels you find many recreational or inexperienced players. But if you play at the cash tables of levels (0.25 / 0.50) or (0.50 / 1.00) or higher ... you will find players with a lot of experience and ability to read your strategy quickly and you will become a very predictable player ... So for each level where you play the strategy must be adjusted ...!

I also think that is the best strategy, most players get impatient and tend to push on hands that have to value.
