Moving from online to live
I've been playing poker, online and live in friends homes with about 5 casino visits, for about 2 years and i have a problem lol
Last night i went to venlo casino to play in their 100 euro freezeout, although i've never played in this specific tournie i have played in the friday night 50€ 1 rebuy/addon about 4 times, once coming second for around a 1000€.
My problem is that although in online sngs n mtts i do well and play a good aggresive game i'm rarely able to transfer my skills from the online games into casinos
, last night i played the worst poker i've ever played, raising out of position and then being scared to put out cont bets and call re-raises, i finally busted out when the antes kicked in and i pushed with JJ on the btn and was called by AA in the small blind, i was a living example of a bad tight-weak player.
I cant understand why, i'm not playin with scared money as im in the forces and so have a fair bit of disposable income.
My guess is that im sub-consiously feeling a little intimidated, i am a shy person naturally and had to work hard at learning to be aggressive online as my style online doesnt match my real life demeanour at all.
Has anyone else had isues like this?? Im putting it down to a bad night and have worked it out of my system by taking down a few 5 buck sngs today, giving myself a lil confidence booster becuase im on a long weekend and plan to go again tonight for the 50$ tournie, i see it as a good experience last night though as it really rattled me that i played so bad and i thought about what i'd been doing wrong for a long time when i got home, gonna go again tonight with aggression at the fore front of my mind and play like i've got a pair lol
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
