      I am from Europe. Made this fishing experiment. NL2
      Or maybe I am not tired as in evenings?

      Yesterday went earlier to bed - I was asleep at 9 pm and woke up at 3 am.
      So I went to WPT Poker to see how Americans play.

      Man, this is beautiful:

      European fish are very difficult in comparison...

      I also heard that Europeans play aggressive poker on some WSOP/WPT commentary... What are your experiences?

      Wow 400 hands.
      What a sample.

      That aside, I too have a stereotype that American fishes are much tastier fishes than European fishes.

      American fish and European fish have slightly different playing styles.
      -American fish tend to play very loose passive and are willing to call down with a relativly wide range especially vs players they percieve to be agressive.
      -European fish are also loose but tend to more agressive then their American counterparts. They are less likely to limp/call preflop in general and are more likely to shove their busted draws on the river in bad spots.

      I personally prefer to play with American fish because its easier to win their money (vBet, vBet, vBet) but it also takes longer sometimes.

      Not really a big enough sample... But I do notice myself that the games seem to be a bit more fisher late at night/early morning...

      Maybe its because there are more Americans than European entities :)

      I used to be a fish but im not now as it costs too much to see additional cards but now I'd rather know i have the nuts before even putting a large bet on against what i would call a fish from the states :)

      3 am drunken Europeans? Come on!
      Maybe they were Mexicans, Brazilians or Canadian. Whoever it was, they were good and today it was also good.

      I believe the OP believed they were Americans as he was playing at 3am European time.

      There is NO american players at WPT Poker :)
