Online Poker

been grinding at online poker for the past three months and now i feel like i have developed and improved my game, i'm going to join a poker tournament being sponsored by one of the bigger casinos here in our city. i'm really excited about it. i feel i can already adapt what i've learned from playing online poker for the good part of the year. actually started playing and learning poker again last december. skipped a good part of our company's christmas party to play poker at a nearby poker joint. since then, i've been playing poker for small stakes at the same place every other weekend. been staging poker night-outs with a couple of my buddies. playing at least twice a week with friends and friends of friends again for small stakes. of course, every free time i got, early evenings, very late evenings, and up to the very early mornings, i would be hunched in my laptop and play online poker with complete strangers. i also visited poker forums and read books about the game to gain more knowledge. of course, i believe that experience is the best teacher so i still kept playing in live poker matches. anyway, during the past months, i was able to set aside some funds to bankroll this new endeavor of mine.

so my fellow PPers, care to share your experiences when playing poker in a live tournaments? care to share some tips? do i play aggressively and try to steal some of the chips pre-flop? do i play tight and pick my spots?

looking forward to everyone's insights cheers and happy weekend everyone!!!

Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with tournaments. I was never confident enough to enter them. I just used to play with my buddies casually. Good luck!

Out of my wheelhouse, but I have a friend who makes his living playing poker.

Now that I have enough work that I do online I do not ever click on that virtual casino that I have downloaded. I did have a lot of fun playing various games but not for money.

I never thought there is a tournament in playing poker. I hope you win. I don't really play poker, and I don't really want to get involve with any gambling materials. God bless.

I've never played poker 'for real' so I have no tips. But I can wish you good luck!

I'm not speaking for you but I have played online poker since 2001 and I can say it is a totally different game then live poker. Just the pace alone makes it so much different. Not to mention the in person reading people part of it. I have friends that make a living off online poker but when they go to the casino poker rooms...well lets just say they are in the red in live rooms. Sure reading books can help a small amount..but its all about spending your time on the tables in live poker and learning from your mistakes. Not everyone can live off playing poker. Just a very very very small percent of people. I think it takes a special kind of person with some good luck also. I know I didn't give you any tips, but I wish you the best.
