do i just need to play loose and crazy at the 1-3
Its a nitty game and sometimes in those games not much money changes hands unless there's a cooler. AA vs. KK pre etc. flopped set vs. flopped flush. You can choose to open up your game but if people start playing back you will be in tough spots with marginal hands. It depends how confident you are in your reads, your game, barreling, bluffing tight players etc. If you move up, you might have a better chance to win big occasionally but if the skill level at the table is superior, you are also a lot more likely to lose big.
