I have played exclusively online poker so far. All in all, I have a positive balance, and would like to move offline for some minor tournament (for curiosity, and because it's the real thing, actually).
What are common pitfalls for online players moving offline? Regarding the process/organization of playing (not the strategy), what are some things that online players should learn? Online you only have to push some buttons, and the system is clearly made to flow mechanically. I'm afraid an online player would get pretty lost really quick.
And what are some venues worth visiting? I live in the UK and tend to spend vacation (August) on Southern Spain or Southern France. I don't mean big tournaments costing £1,000, but rather places where you find hobby players.
