Online Players at Big live events
It seems like lately when you watch the WSOP
or a WPT event you see many young online players at these events. Ive heard several of them say (with a bit of arrogance i think) that they've played more hands and have more experience than players such as the legendary Doyle Brunson. I dont see how you can compare multi-tableling 12 plus tables versus actually being in a live game, learning reads, trying not to give tells
and gaining the valueable experience in a live casino.
Dont get me wrong. I play online and love it but if i play as little as 3 tables at once then im really just playing situations and not getting reads or feelings on other players.
The online poker has given us an avenue to get better much faster than our predecessors but I think you have to guard against over confidence just cause you can play "X" amount of hands in a month.
