There is no mystery as to why TAG and SLAG styles dominate micros.
Opponents call too much.
If you are going to get to SD a lot then you need cards that win often at SD.
In order to profitably play wider ranges, people need to be folding hands postflop with greater reliability. The problem with the micros is that the sums of money are too small for people to lay hands down AND feel curious.
At higher stakes you can really want to know what someone has, yet still lay down as the sums of money involved are too great to make tonnes of crying calls.
People do make crying calls, but no where near as much.
At 5NL people will call 3 streets of betting with AK and THINK its good. At higher limits people will also call 3 streets with AK.. but this time they do so because they KNOW its good against their opponents range.. it isnt simply wishful thinking.
