I play NL like a nit and limit like a LAG, and do well at both (although I find NL very boring).

Which is a local nit going to be more drawn to:
Paying ~$10/hour in folded blinds in a 1-2 NLHE (~30 hands/hour, nine-handed), with the opportunity to set-mine to stack tourists; or
Paying ~$30/hour in folded blinds in a 3-6 LHE game (~40 hands/hour, nine-handed)?
Given a choice, no nit in their right mind would pick a limit game over a no-limit one for this promotion.
