Online verses Live poker

By: rasheek77 @ 19:59 (EDT) / 316 / Comment ( 7 )

I am starting my first blog with what i think is an important issue regarding how i play Online compared to Live.


Firstly i will state that i have only been in 3 live poker games and I have won 2 and finished 2nd in the other,mind you they are only pub poker tournaments. They had around 50 to 60 players but i found it so easy being there and reading  people, and i find it easier to lead people astray with live playing.

But online i seem to find it a lot different,I usually finish just outside of the money so many times, I wondering should i change the way i play as i think i have a really good hand but they just seem to pull out a hand that's better. Like i go all in with pocket Aces and they will get a flush or a straight, some kick arse hand and it is very annoying. Im thinking it might be best to start to watch some training video's but im worried it will completely change how i play poker and I'm worried that i will lose intrest in playing as i love playing the style i play. I love playing a few different styles and i just dont want to tie myself down to a set way.

So if anybody has an opinions it would be most welcome. I would also like to know if people has a few issues/worries when the watched/read training techinques and was it hard to completely change your style and is the outcome worth it.
