perhaps you're getting it in bad?
What have I learned??.... you can play at micro levels for as long as you choose to, & know that you'll rarely be able to use anything much beyond level1 thinking on the tables because the vast majority of the players aren't capable of going beyond that. Most won't put you on a range of hands & most will use their own play/thinking for a benchmark to evaluate what you're doing (ie. you check-raise the turn... they're thinking.. "oh.. he's making a move... I callzzz with my gutter").
Online micro players play for a variety of reasons.... the majority don't seem to be playing to win.
In Micro limits you can play uber tight in mutlitable SNG play, showing down only the nuts or near nuts, or big pairs like AA KK & QQ and still have a guy flat call your 4bet cuz he's got a suited facecard out of position.
.... the list goes on but am pretty sure you're getting the general idea of what I've learned in micro levels.. Oh yah, another thing I've learned is, playing micro levels for extended periods of time is an extended waste of time (if your goal is to become a better player).
