I'd say there are more NL folk who overestimate their implied odds in mid-limit LHE. Point being I agree w/ Rock that when game conditions are perfect you can profitably take 2 to the face with 65s, but don't try it at a typical 10/20.

I can agree with that (even if it sounds contradictory to what I said) and go further: I think overestimating implied odds (and its close cousin - failing to account for redraws and outs that may not be) seems pretty common no matter what game people play most. I guess what I was driving at was where the implied odds come from in those games (not from stack size) and accounting for the full situation, such as how many have already limped in vs. yet to act and how loose they tend to call from flop to river, etc. If I've got only one or two players in the pot in front of me you won't find me calling a raiser in LHE with a hand that is most likely to turn into a draw & therefore is most valuable when there are likely to be multiple callers on multiple subsequent betting rounds.
