Useful even after you get caught. There's still situations you can keep stealing, get caught twice, wait for a hand, do it again, get looked up, get extra value.
I generally raise more just because I feel people will call too loosely in the low stakes games I play, and I try to avoid going 3-5 handed at all costs. Which I've generally see happen.
Playing live things are different though. But I agree, they are in a few classes/levels beyond where I am, and maybe beyond where I'll ever end up with my game!
