My London take-home ticket:
Online players, before going into live poker, should learn the live aspects first. These are two very separate fields, with live poker requiring not to try to win the pot every time, otherwise you’ll come up short.
Playing poker professionally throws plenty of challenges your way, particularly the seemingly never-ending production line of excellent, experienced and eager young upstarts.
GUKPT London seemed to be chock-full of such players. When the topic of conversation in the bar among the latest crop is how past it Chris Moorman is and how the game has moved on since his heyday, it’s easy to feel like an old man in a young man’s game.
