Barry Greenstein: "sometimes finding the best game means traveling"

Posted on Thursday, November 29, 2012 by "T".
On Wednesday, Barry "the Robin Hood of poker" Greenstein posted a blog on traveling to find the best games in poker. Barry wrote that he hasn't been traveling much as of late and as a result of that he has missed out on many good games. "One of the things that I haven't done recently as much as I should have is travel to play in good games. When I was younger and single, if there was a good poker[...]   Read more » Barry Greenstein: "sometimes finding the best game means traveling"

simple but true- if you are a shark you must always look out for the fish, if there is not enough fish to feed from where you are swimming- it's time to change the territory. barry is a shrewd customer- he knows at which games he has the biggest edge, and is always looking for softest competition possible in those games

Of course that Barry is right and frankly this is the main reasons why poker pros travel to exotic destination: to have bigger profits!

From what i know already Barry and Ivey were to Macau to play the high stakes cash games.

well i must say he is right about that one. i to have traveled in the past to go play in what I knew was going to be a soft game. I did a $100 buy in like everyone else and I walked away about 5 hours later with over $2000 for my trouble.

The problem was I fleeced the sheep to hard and was not allowed to go back and play in the weekly game again. I was to greedy and should have know better but I really needed to cash at the time and lacked the patience to tone my skills down.
That 1st big night win of 2K has cost me thousands of dollars over the last decade Sad
learn from my mistake mates.

i think every poker pro does that, the problem when they play regularly at some places is that people know them and know their playstyle. if i would eventually become a known poker player, im not sure if i would want to be known, because then it would be much harder to compete for me. But on the other side it could eventually push me up to higher limits, and on the end it could be better for my game. Well anyway this are all speculations, because i clearly dont know what its like in high stakes poker, all i know is from episodes, and amateur tourneys i sometimes participate in Smile

Guess he's referring to every U.S. citizen that would like to play poker since we sure's the fudge can't play on-line sitting in the comforts of our own homes anymore. I mean what the hey, we pay our taxes and yet this country because they can't get there greedy hands on poker winnings via on-line playing they just shutdown any options for us to withdraw money. Jokers running this country!

That's totally true. For a winning poker player, who makes life out of the game, travel is a "must do" on the life. At first, he will have to go from casino to casino in his local area, but there will be a time in which he will have to go for other countries so he can go after the action, he have to be where the biggest tourneys are. Sometimes, it's good to chose the comparison between bigger prize tourneys and less big competitors, to turn things easier, but that will always mean to travel, a lot!
