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.

re: Poker & Cash game skills
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.
