Hi again ihate, the 1-2 and 1-3 cash games in Tampa are incredibly ez to beat compared to 1-2 online. I've played both and at most 1-2 live tables you have mostly level 1 thinkers who either play way, way too many hands (think the type that limp calls raises OOP w K4s because it was sooooted) and very weak tight players who don't want to put money in the pot without having a huge hand, plus there is very little PF 3 betting and most players do not have any concept of balanced ranges.
In 1-2 online on the other hand many players think at a much higher level but also know how to play position more effectively, balance their ranges and good 1-2 online players know how to extract value, including thin value, on all streets.
In other words, as the previous poster mentions there is no comparison. I've heard 1-2 live can be equated to .02/.04 online, even today's online NL50 (0.25/0.50) online games are much tougher than your average 1-2 live game IMO.
