Okay, I'm going to rant here. If mods want to yell at me ban me etc I'll deal with it. This is the dumbest advice ever. If you can't beat micro stakes, which is filled with bad players how in the name of Jebus are you expected to beat higher stakes filled with better players? Your raises might get some credit initially but they will quickly adjust to your play and beat you. They will make these adjustments because they are stronger players.
In any other field would you ever consider competing against the best players because you were unable to beat the weaker players? For all of you Premier league fans that would be like promoting the last place team in the second division because their style is perfect for beating Man U.
In baseball, if you can't hit minor league pitching, they don't move you up to the majors.
Lately it seems like there are about three people who post who know what the hell they are talking about and a bunch of people giving a million bad replies to repetitive or just plain bad threads.
Frankly my post earlier in the thread was the best answer and that''s pretty sad since I will freely admit that I'm at best a moderately good micro grinder.
But by all means, move up to 5/10 where they respect your raises and let us all know how that works out for you.
