Yep, nitty is the way to play the game at the micros, especially if you're just learning the game. You can expand to other styles later, as your game grows. FWIW, all the other scorned styles work at the low micros as well.... Fit/Fold, Weak/Tight, etc. you can make money with all of these since there will be donks waiting to pay you off often enough to make it profitable.
Now, obviously, you won't be as profitable as a good TAG, or a good LAG, but the key here is "good". At the micros you'll often see players try to play these styles, but play them poorly. Best, or at least cheapest, to learn the game as a nit and grow from there. Much more expensive to try to learn the game as a LAG from day one.

Didn't realize they were there to be liked . Thought they were there to make money and, possibly, to learn the game if they are new.
