Diablo - That's an interesting post. It sounds like you play with the same people most of the time and when you play with new people you don't do as well.
Most of us onliners play with new people every day, every game - so that might be one advatage to playing online that you can use in your casino play. I have not done as well as you moneywise but haven't played as long either and am probably not as good as you.
I can't say in pot size but in total money at one time its -- $22.50! which I won today at a single table sit and go. Won first place. So out of 3 games, I've won 2nd, 3rd, and now 1st. I'm pretty happy with that so far.
I do want to play live more often where you can win more, but for now... I feel I'm doing pretty well for just starting to play real money
