Anyways, I just wanted to ask, I know how everyone says you should play worse players who would give their $ or chips away to you but some of them go all in too often and it's hard to know what to do in certain situations. Therefore, will it get easier playing 7$/15$/30$ sng's than 1.50$ sng's since players will be more sensible? or is playing vs such "bad" players still more profitable ?
flawed logic unfortunately.
"all in too often and it's hard to know what to do in certain situations."
This is called learning. You don't know what to do because you havent' encoutered that situation before, or are unsure of how to deal with it. This is great! You now recognize that you have a problem, now the solution is to study, or work out how to deal with it so next time you will know.
"Therefore, will it get easier playing 7$/15$/30$ sng's than 1.50$ sng's since players will be more sensible?"
Players in these games are going to be better than you, so long term they will make less mistakes than you will. So long term you will lose more, and they will win more, simple as that. The worse people play, the more mistakes they are obviously making, if they are making more mistakes than you are, you should make more money.
"or is playing vs such "bad" players still more profitable ?"
Yes. However, having a 10% ROI in the $1.50 games is going to be worse than having a 3% ROI in the $7.00 games. However you need a lot of skill to even make 3% roi over the long haul in the $7 games these days.
