I play mainly FL, and occasionally sets of PL. (not holdem though)
Through previous experience and lots of analysis I can make pretty quick and (more often than not) correct decisions. Remember these are vastly different decisions to those in tournaments. If you play mainly tourneys, to an extent you need to relearn how to play.
Dont get carried away with it being a honeypot though...it isnt. Out of say a million people playing cash games, probably 999,000 do nothing more than contribute to the rake. Even "good players" wont make money. You need to put in work to reteach yourself, and even then the edge is small. If you can convert 1BB to an hourly rate then you have done extremely well.
In answer to your specific example :-
I dont play NLHE/PLHE/LHE for cash. I dont like it, never have. I can appreciate an edge in LHE could be forged through lots of experience, good temperament, and analysis. But in NLHE, it sends a shiver down my spine even thinking of trying to play that for cash.
Good luck to you.
