I just don't have the nerves to deal with the bingo monkeys at 1/2c..
Well, If you have been an SNG player for 6 month. You'll see that cash game is very different.
Also, If you play out of your bankroll, you might have even less nerves at NLHE10... People will still do crazy things and most of them will love their draws so much that they'll suckout, it's true that on the long term, it's a good thing (As long as you don't give'em the odds
to call with their draw). But on the short term, you might run bad and lose everything to those same "bingo monkeys"
On top of that, You should really breath deep and play NL2 since a downswing won't hurt you much with 40BI. Otherwise, if you REALLY can't stand it, try NL5. You have 16BI so it's not THAT bad...
And trust me, those "any 2 limpers" can be beat, just be patient and wait for good solid hands. You don't even have to play fancy in NL5 and under.
For your hand, I'm siding with StormRaven, I'd have raised and called the small 3-bet preflop (prolly for setmining) and bet on the flop. But the turn is scary and facing a shove, I would have folded without even thinking about it. So yes, you probably got lucky.
(Keep in mind that I'm a NL10 player (who once went broke because of bad BKR management) so if anyone don't agree with what I said, feel free to talk)
