Yes, even the best only generally beat it for 1 or less. It was, and probably still is, the worst level because you get almost no decrease in rake like you said and a lot of the mid stakes guys would play it when no games were going. It was very good for SNE grinding though, but I think that model of limit poker is just about over for most people.
