with a small BR, natural variance can be a killer in cash games. so i try to stay away from them unless i can afford to buy in with the full amount according to the 5% BRM rule.
People calling you down with anything is a GOOD thing. Yes, it can be frustrating when they win and there is more variance in these crazy games, but the better players win in the long run.
It is easy to build up a decent BR playing micros, just play abc style poker.
