I'm a tournament player. I do quite well but could never make it in any big live tournament I'd ever play. A local pro would always play the knockout tournaments and some of the 250 dollar buy in tournaments when warming up for the bigger buy in tournaments. He quit his day job (he was a doctor). Anyways, I would always meet him at the final table and often would outplay him. However, when buying into the bigger buy ins I'd never make it or bubble out and he'd always be at the final table and even cashed a few times for 100,000, or 145,000 and a few others that I can't quite remember. He did well. So I asked him, "how is it that I can beat you and outplay you in these smaller buy in tournaments but can never do as well as you in the bigger buy in tournaments?" He said, "because poker is rich man game. You lose 1500 buy in you might load a second time or maybe not. I might spend 7500 to get a good chip stack to give me the best odds of making it to the final table. Like I said, poker rich man game."
