Low levels, players don't care about raises since it's low money. Every time I raise or something I just get called or re-raised even if they don't have anything. Kind of frustrating and almost impossible to bluff.
What would be your advice on that matter? I know that i have more problems ...
Stop trying to justify limping too much. It's alright to do so under certain circumstances when you have decent reason to so so, but just being afraid isn't one of them.
Quite a few micro players are indeed loose with their money because it just isn't much even if it's their entire roll. That's something to embrace, not to fear. It raises the profitability of anyone who plays a decent-enough game to be a winning player. It also helps lower the barrier to becoming one.
As for players you can't bluff, that's only a problem to the extent that you try to do so. When you recognize such players, don't bluff them. Look toward value-towning them instead. Problem largely addressed. You don't have to outplay people consistently to win at the micros. It's a bit of a simplification, but people make more than enough mediocre and bad plays that give you money or make it easy to take it. As long as you give back less, you'll be profitable. This isn't the same as optimizing your win rate, but IMO, it's good to have a win rate before you focus on optimizing it.
