Great Question regarding online to live tournaments!
I would be very interested in seeing the replies to your question, because I have been thinking of going to a casino here in Florida
and enter a tournament to see how I do.
I have been playing Texas
Holdem tournaments online for about 2yrs and I have won some freeroll tournament money from Fulltilt, UB & Absolute Poker nothing major but still have made money. I would consider myself a good online player, but not a great one. I would be a much better player (I think) if I would call more of the "Bluffing Chip Leader" or "The Donkeys" at the table.
I mean the player/players at the table who will bet 2-3 times the big blind or go all in & I will be 50% they are bluffing but I will fold instead of calling just in case I am wrong. The other thing is that I do not used any programs while playing online, (odds calculators,or hud) to me they only hurt you in the long run. I have lost money & my seat playing online tournments when the odds
were very much in my favor. The first time I really started thinking about it was about 1yr ago on Full Tilt in a Private Freeroll tournament,I lost half my bank in 3 hands to a guy that didn't have crap. My avatar showed my emotion & one of the other players at the table said to me that if I was playing live in a casino I would have won those 3 hands.
If you really pay attention to the table and watch the winning hands you will notice that the winners at the table go in sequence, after so many wins at a table you are moved?
I am very good at ready people in person, but that is a little hard online..
Good Luck in your tournament!!!!
