      Hi all. just want your opinion. Tonight for the first time I played live poker at my local bar where i work, no one really plays seriously and by far i havr the most experience (thats how bad it is where i stay!). Anyway i did really bad, made one or 2 bluff attempts and got called, i also made some mistakes. I lost money in 2 stt's , it really destroyed me. In my opinion live and online is a big difference. Does anyone agree? and have similar stories to tell, plus advice... this has broken me. ps by the way we having the same event weekly and i would like to show them up. thanx ?(

      Remember: Poker with drunk guys = no fold equity.

      There's no difference in both pokers. The players are always different.

      With live games, the number of hands/hour is greatly reduced, so the number of good playable hands you get dealt in a session is also reduced.........you therefore have to be more patient and not play more marginal hands just for the sake of being involved.

      You are also able to really get a feel for the table... Like, you can tell if a particular table or player has a tendency to go to showdown, or whether they'll fold their semi-made hand to a decent bet. Apart from that you also have to watch your visual and verbal tells if you're against other experienced live game players.
