that's why i stopped playing at those tables...waiting to deposit 200$ and play full stack on the 0.10 NL tables.
I've played 8k hands in the last two days at 0.02/0.05 and trust me, people do fold They also showdown with the craziest hands and give you lots of money. Nom nom.
What makes you think that moving from 0.02/0.05 to 0.05/0.1 is going to mean you get to play far better opponents? It'll be exactly the same, just with a few more half decent regs chucked in amongst the maniacs and fish
I've run into a few shortstackers at low stakes, but no good ones. They are too easy to outplay - they only ever play extremely tight and then try and ship it either pre or on any good flop, so if you have position on them with hands like suited connectors where you can outflop their high pocket pair or premium Ace by calling their raises they'll ship it into you anyway
