Interesting. Live games are usually sooo much softer than online games. Mainly because people have adhd and are impatient and so they play a lot of bad hands out of boredom. Where as online people will just play 8 or more tables and only play better hands and position.
I'd suggest paying attention to what the locals do in your games as far as raise sizing, and things of that nature. Play looser in position. Sometimes even limp behind if the table isn't being aggressive just to get into more pots against the weaker players. Talk more and get information from people.

re: Poker & Cash game vs online game
What do you plan normally when you play online and what do you play live? If you're playing cash live, you probably have leaks you need to find and fix. If you are playing MTTs live, it's going to feel like you are losing more. You only have one shot when you go to a casino, but online you could play several MTTs in a day. It's just a smaller sample size that that takes a whole lot longer to gather than online.

Online is the 180 degrees opposite to live and vise versa.
Dont apply much strategies youre doing online to your local casino.
Tidbits: Online players, dont listen to live players. Live players, dont listen to onlne players.
