I've made some winnings TAG but I seem to win more when I play my own style which is TAG but LAG. It is a tricky style but the reason I keep trying to do more TAG is so that I can multi-table because good LAG requires too much thought.
My data over 12k hands shows that most of my money is won with flushes and straights.
I think the reason that playing a smart LAG style pays off in micro-limits is the pre-flop bets are so small compared to stack sizes. So, okay your stack is $3-$5 and your pre-flop raise is 4x the big blind or 8 cents to 17 cents then that is very small compared to stack size.
Post flop the bets can get very large thus the post-flop edge becomes more important. My LAG style is fairly tight too though. I always play suited aces too. Keep in mind I'm playing 6 player ring game so that might be part of it too.
The main difference between what I call my TAG vs LAG style is when I play LAG I'll start raising more off the button. I think the LAG style is actually negative expectation but you get so many more callers on your premium hands that it makes up for the money you pay to play the weaker hands.
I *will* say I think it pays off more at .02/.05 then .01/.02 but I can't say for sure. I think the big problem with playing TAG is a good example. A guy raises and he has like $5. I call with a weak ace and knowing I'm behind and flop 2 pair with an ace rag. I didn't flop top 2 pair but I'm ahead of all AK/AQ and I stack him.
What if I didn't stack him? What he won.. maybe 30-40 cent. So he'd have to do that 100x to be able to withstand 1 stack off.
The way i view it is the raiser is always ahead and the caller is playing catch up. Raiser is playing defense BUT he must protect his stack FIRST to the POT or else he is at serious risk because the caller or opponent playing catch up will usually hit something way bigger if he catches up.
To give another example.. if your playing LAG you have a lot more chance to hit stuff and put in large post-flop bets. That's the benefit because its typically cheap to see flops in most fishy games. The downside is you have to be thinking a lot more and put more in marginal situations.
Just to give some ideas where I stack people and stacking is the only way real money
gets put in the pot:
A LAG opponent flops top 2 pair and I flop a straight on the flop. Stacked.
A TAG raises AK and I play ace-rag which I usually don't do but it was probably suited. I flop 2 pair. Stacked.
A TAG raises with queens. I flop a flush. Stacked.
You see its the big hands that stack people.
