I would suggest pretty tight, better calling then being an aggressor, usually ending on non-hit flop.
Tight is a reasonable strategy, but you need to be aggressive too, just calling is not the way.

Dont run too many big bluffs, but do cbet wide, and try to get alot of money in the pot when you have a big hand (dont slowplay).

Adding to that try to get as cheap as you can into multiway spots. Then exploit postflop, but for that you need to have some knowledge, which you can get, for example, in CC course.

Like the others said, in these games usually tight is right. But as always in poker, things can change quickly and sometimes you want to be a bit looser.

Hello
,first of all do not listen do advice given to you in above comments!
Playing tight and passive is a very bad idea.
Aggressive poker is winning poker.
LAG poker is the most effective style to play in micro stakes.
Second, your bankroll is too small to play effectively.
Try to increase either by bigger deposit,
atleast to 50 buy ins.
If you dont have that option playing freerols is a good way to gain experience and increase your bankroll.
This website offers a lot of options for that.
There is plenty of free guides on the internet to help you win in micro stakes.
For example blackrain79 offers a lot of useful information for very beginners.

Just play with consultants. Don't bluff at the pre-limit, especially since you only have 7 entries.

First off all 15$ or 7.5 BI bankroll is to small to play NL2. I recommend to start with at least 50$. Maybe you are playing perfectly and lucky and can boost you bankroll. But with 15$ bankroll you can play perfectly right on NL2 and loosing 15$ in one day.

Also I would recommend to learn GTO. These are the basics of how to play every hand against anyone. Using GTO as basic and playing exploited against villains is much more better than playing tight/nitty.

NL2 is characterized by a large number of weak players. Most players make trivial mathematical errors. Often they "pull" the draw not at odds and outplay the hands of average strength.

Weak players often call 3bet without a position, having no idea about the range and a clear plan for the distribution. 4 bet in such fields from unknown players almost always means "monster". Blind players play too many garbage hands and have an unbalanced range and restyl sizing.

Regulars gravitate toward an overly tight game, trying to find easy solutions against recreational gamblers. Their inflated fold on 3bet and passivity on the post-flop leaves room for exploitation.

The main field of NL2 are beginners, novice regulars and hobby players. Based on this, it is worth noting the general tendency of the field to tilt. This feature is very easy to exploit for your profit. By narrowing your range and including in the draw such tricks as slowing monsters and provoking bluffs, you can get full payment from the players in tilt.

I wouldn't play it because you could be down 2 full buyins in one session and that's nearly a 1/3 of your roll that might make some folks get that "I have to play to get that money back" mentality and we know what a disaster that could be.

Better to go with freerolls and uber low tourn buyins whose buyins could easily replaced with a lot less work and risk exposure like a quarter or below and stopping with the tourns all together if you don't min cash in a few tries.
