Would playing 9max 5nl prepare me to play 1/3? I'm considering jumping into live cash in 2 months with a $1000 roll. I got a job.

Be aware that full ring online, even at .02/.05 is going to play way tighter than 1/3 NL live.

2nd, while the skill level will be roughly the same, game play will be different. First thing to understand about low stakes live is that most opponents didn't drive all the way to the casino to fold preflop. If you raise to 3x, you'll often get 6 callers.

You'll also get 3-bet much less live, so your default open raise should be more like 4x or 5x.

You will also (if you're a competent online player) know an order of magnitude more about position than your opponents.

That's all not to say there won't be a couple of decent players at your table, but they shouldn't be hard to identify.
