In the $40NL game as in Texas Hold'em in general, you need patience. The reason authors (including myself) harp on folding again and again is because you will eventually get caught up on the action in a game. Sooner or later you will go on tilt in a $40NL game and I am trying to save your stack of chips! Some authors question playing so conservatively but in a $40 NL game I always opt for the default position of playing tight unless everybody else is playing rock tight. Then you can take some cautious bluffs.
