What about you? Would you rather play at a table full of average to good players, or a table of fish? Thanks.
Where does the increase in your opponents skills come from? Did you go up the stakes? Are you playing a differnt game or game type or how do you rate that you're now playing against better opponents?
Personally I believe there is suckers and skilled players on all stakes no matter if you play NL4 or NL100. Of course the number of "fish" you have on your table might decrease as you move up the stakes or the number of random players decreases and you have more regulars on the table but there is always fish out there.
However, I wouldn't like having a full table of regs cause those tables are often turn into some very serious games and a battle over the blinds. I rather have 2-3 "recreational players" at the table than a full ring of skilled players. Imho it's -EV.
