The grind against the thousands has me drifting back to my "free, with a chance at $$, sites". I try to catch as many "school" games as I can but the path to cash is, at least, better odds on those sites. I have learned a lot of paitience in the 1000's of games played and I believe I've picked up a skill. However, I can't help but feel that I am setting myself up for a fall if I try to play that way back out in the real world/live.
  I have been away from my live games for three or four years and have a chance to go back at it soon. Does anyone have any thoughts on what might help me put my new found skill/s together with what was always a good ability to read my live opponents???

just payin a few bills, hoping for more
