Not any more 'luck' than overbetting a draw (chasing) in NL.
In limit games the player is making more decisions, card by card, than most do on NL tables. That said, there is different strategies involved in limit than NL. You can't generally bluff a player off a draw. The check/raise is one way, and that used to be a prohibited move at live games in many casinos
Position is just as important in limit as NL. How many are left to act after you. What have they been playing. Stack sizes have a lot to do with it, just like NL. You don't really want to sit at a limit table short stacked. It's easier to bet you out of a pot. Looks like you're playing with limited funds or scared money.
Limit is a game for grinders with patience. Far less variance in limit. For decent players, swings won't affect your BR nearly as much as NL.
I started limit 5 draw and 7 stud in '69 when Holdem tables were sitting empty - IF - they had any at all. I still prefer 7 stud, which is always a limit game. Yes, I've seen some NL stud, but it's an insane game, NL Holdem on steroids.
Would really need some kind of Hand Histories to give advice on the 'when to fold' when to 'chase'. I don't particularly care for the word 'chase', since even betting in NL games is it's own advanced form of 'chasing'. Why is it NL players call it 'betting draws' while they say seeing cards and betting accordingly (in limit) is 'chasing'. Aren't they really the same thing?? Just costs you more to do it.
