This is why good online players out class live players.
online players have tonnes of information to sift through and study. They can continually refine their own play. They play against tougher and tougher opponents.
Live players have no such information and therefore progress at a slower rate.
It s far far easier for a decent online player to move to live play than it is for a live player to move to online as the online player's basic game is a lot stronger than his live counterpart.
The online player will still need to adapt to live play, but its an easier task than the move from live to online,
