Since you can expect to lose a big pot when this happens, it's not something that cuts your winnings. Losing these hands is a natural part of your normal win rate. Yes, as you get better, you may be able to lose less sometimes. But realistically, how much do you think you're likely to save over a decent sample size?
+1 on this.
I have drastically improved my game this month just by learning how to note/label my opponents properly, and adapt my playstyle after how they play.
The LAGs however is still unpredictable when it comes to sets, however the nits are a different story.
Since you are using a HUD (wich I just recently learned to use) it's fairly easy to separate Nit's, LAG's, TAG's and fishes after 20 - 40 hands.
Anyway, as Arjonius says there isn't much money you will save in the long run folding overpairs to LAG's.
Hope this helps.
