Of course you should all take me with a grain of salt. I sufffer from the fatal flaw of not being able to fold on the river. This makes me a VERY bad player in big bet games.
You are talking about gaming conditions. Because LHE is played very close to perfect by a lot of people, it is harder to excel at it.
NLHE is not even close to be played good by everyone, so you experience success easier, hence you think the game itself is easier. Although your bolded statement is more indicative of live games and the lowest of micros online. I don't see people stacking off against a set regularly anymore.
But from a theoretical standpoint, solving NLHE is inherently more difficult.
