I'm new still to online and live poker but I struggle far more online than live thats for sure..
For one, online all you get is ****y idiots who wouldn't say boo to a goose and of course the all-ins every hand you're involved in. Hardly ever do you see it in live and I believe there is more skill and more respect for players in the live circuit. Besides which, online people ain't ashamed calling/rasing and chasing with pot odds
if they hit it. Live, people seem to have a better concept of how poker is played maybe it's just because of the micro poor limits I play in.
I also believe if I was born into the older generation of poker and "how" it is supposed to be played, I'd of done better. Poker has just taken on such a different game to what it was when the likes of Tom Dwan came on the scene the game just changed to crazy shit. Don't get me wrong, I admire what Tom has achieved and like him as a player I just think there are far to many players trying to play like he does and fail big time time and time again but people will still try playing with 10,2 os firing bluffs and all sorts and thats where its gone to pot really. There are so many of them around that the luck factor in online poker is so much more than live.
