A big myth that we see many give beginners guidance on the first steps of online poker to play real money is that you need to be playing for long periods with play money and then playing $ 0.01 / $ 0.02 stakes gradually increasing. Others are the extreme and say that you have to risk a lot of money early to earn substantial rewards and get excited about the game.
In my view, this is totally unreal. Why waste time playing poker for free or at super low stakes when you can just deposit $ 30 into one of the real money online poker games / best real moneypoker sites and play $ 1.00 stakes?
Playing tournaments with super low stakes does not have much seriousness and commitment from the players.
You don't learn anything. When you lose you find that your opponent deceived you and you end up learning nothing from the defeat, in fact you feel bad.
Tournaments with higher stakes, there is even a blef, more players already respect each other and play within more logic.
I agree with your opinion in my case I prefer to play tournaments with entries a little higher than micro since I will get better players and I can learn much more about poker than playing tournaments where bad players abound and who play with any cards
