this should be an argument where both sides agree to disagree. i'm not saying PA or KT are right, im just saying that they are obviously not gonna change their opinion.

Yeah this seems like a non-productive argument really for many reasons.

But that broccoli and cheese person sounds like they have life down pretty well.

I think the answer to all this is simple. Online guys see a lot more hands and are generally just all around smarter than the old school love pros. IF and a big IF, the live guys are better at live deep stacked poker, then it would just be a matter of the top online NL pros dedicating themselves to the nuances of deep stacked play and then it would be all over for the live guys. And obviously with 100bb stacks it's not even close. The online guys would destroy the live guys.

[/ QUOTE ]

and you don't think the opposite is true for the live guys? you don't think if they farted around with 100bb stacks for a few months, they couldn't torture the online games? if so, why not?

[/ QUOTE ]

Because A. they never have and if they could they would be doing it already. I mean these guys go to the smelly casino all day and have sick variance at times. So many are broke. They could be grinding the cash games online and making supplemental money.

Plus so many of them are street smart kind of guys. Aren't real good with numbers etc. Lots are just plain stupid. Not that all of the online guys are brillinat, but many are. My poker buddies are ivey league grads and successful wall street guys etc. How many of the live guys could graduate from an ivey league school...lol. Half probably don't even have a high school diploma.

Plus it's hard to adjust to different games when you gain your experience so slowly. How are they going to make huge adjustments and use data to make these adjustments when they can't do it as fast as online guys. I just think overall that if they could do it they would. I mean why not have an extra source of income while lying in bed w/ your laptop?

There are alot of people on this planet, I guess that since online people isn't in their natural habitat when they play live, the people who always play live have an advantage when they play vs each other (who knows). But the interesting thing about this discussion is if live players are more skilled than online players. I guess live players play more deep stacked which is something you want to do to increase the amount of skill involved. Why ask about the best at 10 handed? Why not just ask about live and deep? I guess an argument could be that there are players who only bother to play live and 10 handed who won't touch online who are simply far superior, but can that be true?

Damn you! I wish that I lived less than 5,000 miles from the nearest Whataburger!

Always struggling to come up with a versatile, if not favorable side dish, I asked my daughter which she prefers - Rice-A-Roni or buttered noodles.





Her answer was melted Velvetta over steamed broccoli
