Meh,I gotta disagree with you here and I think you know better as well. Looked at your #'s versus mine on OPR and in reality we're real close. Our average buy-in amount is very close and while my ITM and ROI %'s are better you have 6 times as many plays as me roughly so yours count for more sample size wise.

Are you really going to shortchange yourself and say it's all luck in the micros? I know that I don't believe that for myself. A few times (a very few times...) the cards will fall perfect and you can cruise to a victory. Much more often than that the cards simply will not let you win. That's standard.

But the games where the cards are basically "neutral" I always felt like I had a skill edge on most,if not all of the players on my tables. And yeah,you DO go to more showdowns in micros than other levels for sure but that can be exploitable as much as it's potentially dangerous.

I always found that keeping copious notes so I had an idea of which players I could exploit,and how, was a key to winning in the Micros because basically the same players would make the same bad plays over and over again.

That and adhering slavishly to David Mamet's quote worked for me. That quote being...

"You can't bluff someone who isn't paying attention."

Absolutely agree you can only bluff good players.(one of my most common notes is too stupid to fold lol) By the way, where are these "neutral" card games you speak of????

Just normal variance,not running hot but not running stone cold either. That's what I mean by the cards being "neutral".

i guess you would therefore disagree with me when i say i've made a ton of big calls and big folds in the micros that ended up being correct. i could have just said "$%#% it, it's all in the cards" and did the opposite and i would have lost
