No offense, but you must be quite bad yourself if you're wanting to quit or not play idiot players because that's where all the money is at.

Keyboard warrior? eh? Just stating a fact, nothing macho about my comment. It's terrible advice or strategy to leave a table if it's full of idiots gambling. This is the most ideal table to ever want to play at.
I'm sorry, but can you explain your sentence to me then because you basically said "Don't play with idiots who want to gamble" how is that me not reading it correctly?
Yes, if people are gambling pre flop, you widen your range for value
and call of lighter, this isn't gambling you're taking a +EV spot just like any other. Yes, cash game is a lot of post flop strategy, however if you're incapable of playing vs a wide range of hands pre flop vs terrible hands then you stand no chance post flop so shouldn't even be playing cash games to start with if you struggle vs the worse of players.
If you don't wish to play these sort of players, then you're in a the wrong game because this is why poker is profitable, people calling to much pre flop and making mistakes post flop. It's impossible to not be more profitable vs these players than say vs TAG who actually have some solid pre and post flop play.
