Great paradox! It's so slow, it's like playing turbo! LOL! Funny but true. I recall one live tourney where the blinds seemed to go up every other hand. It was ridiculous.
Great advice, everyone! I would add that you just want to "blend in" in all ways possible, i.e. in the way you dress, talk, mannerisms, etc. You don't want to stand out so that when some guy is wondering whether to call your all-in, he doesn't quite remember what you were doing before... The good players are going to watch you anyhow, but why make it easier on the guys not paying attention?
Good luck to you!
*** Edited to add: Oh, sorry, I just saw it didn't go too well. Well, see, it was probably the flamboyant clothing! But seriously, sorry to hear. It is definitely a different animal. Use online to get better and it will be a whole lot cheaper. That's what I'm trying to do!
