I beg to differ, are you saying that in the example where he gets beaten by A6 that raising pf and getting someone to get more money in when their behind is a bad play?? B/c a limper with A6 will call you every time at the micros when you raise, i guarantee it, are you the same kind of poster who thinks AK is 'overvalued' b/c it's only ace high??
To the op: the micros are easy peasy to beat, at least 5nl and 10nl anyways, just really work on the absolute basics, play super tight from EP, open up from late, work on knowing when to play the speculative sc's and small-mid PP's and smash people up when they min-raise pre and you can get to a flop for 10c when the effective stacks are like 150BB+
Read Professional No Limit holdem, i can't remember who its by but its a class book and one which has paid itself off many times over for me, the way i see it, the micro's are all about sizing your bets pf and on the flop so that you can make a less than potsize shove on the turn or river and take peoples stacks, obv against the right type of villain and all that but this strategy works a treat with the fishies and theyre the ones you want to know how to crush, exploiting the TAGfish regs can come later.
Also, and this comes from personal exp, one of the most important things you need to have at the micros is a lot of patience and perseverance, i know for a fact that i cant beat 10nl but my patience and tilt has stopped me for a long time, people will suck out on you a lot with the most random and stupid draws ever, you've just got to suck it up and get on with it.
Gl man, and if you ever wanna ask any questions feel free to pm me and i'll try and give you some advice if i can
