Can LAGs make more money?
While playing for a while at 2nl and reviewing my hands, I see that I may not be getting as much value as I should with my premium hands, often because my raises are folded to and rarely called. When called and I get bet into with a low flop with no pairs, I also fold which loses value and I fold my hands unless I get a premium hand. Now this is a good basic strategy that has won me money but I do see that LAGs seem to make more money as their stacks always seem to get bigger while mine shrinks. Sure, this could just be me focusing on lucky LAGs and I have seen LAGs lose their massive stack with stupid plays but I find that their hands get more action than mine, possibly because I nit up much more than they do.
My VP$IP is probably around 20% since I throw away sc and marginal hands like KT, KQ, KJ, QJ, QT, or JTs when out of position or if there is a reraise in front of me. Maybe I my opponents never get a hand when I do but when I raise, I do see people simply fold to my raise and I only win the blinds w/ AQo. I was wondering if I should incorporate more hands and widen my range or should I just grind it out and not widen my range until higher stakes? If so, at what levels?
