Why do poker rooms feel different ?!?!
Strange heading I guess because all poker rooms ARE different (unless you play at shared site like Titan & Mansion).
What I mean is why is it at a Full Tilt tourney I feel I'm at the table, I feel comfortable, I feel I have a handle on the other players and can generally give a good account of myself, whilst at Poker Stars
or Mansion I feel "removed" from the game and consequently struggle to get up a head of steam.
The weird thing is that the opposite is true when I play ring games.
As a consequence I generally limit my tourney play to FT & my ring games to Mansion & PS.
Maybe its "feng shui", maybe its psychological, or maybe I'm just a fruit loop, but if anybody can put a handle on what makes a poker room feel "live" I'd appreciate it.
