You should not enter a ring game with less than at least 100 big blinds imho. thats the general rule thereabouts.
so in a 5/10c game you need at least $10
but anyway, to the OP
Agression is very important in poker, because people will just steal steal and steal from you.
The only time non agression will work in your favour is if you are dealt a monster and slow play or you flop a monster and slow play it. Which you will probably only get maybe once every 25 hands in a tournament.
otherwise you get AK raise, get a caller, miss the flop, check and the caller throws in a single bet and you fold.
Agression is NOT only used to steal with.
You need to use your agression to determine how strong your hand is in comparison to your opponents hand.
for instance you flop middle pair, your opponent bets out.
Only way to determine how strong your hand is is not to call but to raise, if you get popped you can toss the hand away.
and so on.
Remember that bettors and Raisers win at poker, callers and checkers don't.
To answer your question - perhaps poker is NOT about agression then what is? playing your hands ? do you suppose that poker should be get your 2 cards everyone calls, everyone checks each street and the best hand wins the pot ?
if thats your idea of poker perhaps you should rather play slots
and leave it up to chance.
Poker is a game of skill and part of that skill is known when and how to use agression to your advantage.
I say give it another shot - and be the hammer, not the anvil.
