re: Poker & poker academies
I am asking about the training in hopes finding the next step up. I do fairly well when I play in cash games or tourneys in Vegas, but i always seem to make one big mistake in online tourneys. I cannot tell you how many times I have finished on or near the button. I've read the books.
I have considered that the major difference in on line and live for me is the size of the buy in. I tend to play in the $10 to $50 buyin tourneys on line (mostly the lower end of that) and I play $100 plus tourneys in Vegas. ( a few cheaper like the PM at Planet Hollywood or the AM at Flamingo). Could the quality of play be a factor. I've heard it said that it is better to play against good players who will know what you are doing as opposed to players who stay with riduculous hads, thus creatin the oppurtunmity for those horrid beats we all hate. Plus, as we all know, when people stay in in droves, pot odds
go crazy, thus making staying in the way to go.
