Notjitsu will become famous soon enoughNotjitsu will become famous soon enough
Default Patting self on back, and live tourney question:

A) I just won the 60 dollar multi-table at paradise. 1700 bucks being by far my biggest tourney win ever by about...1400 dollars.

B) If I were playing live, I doubt I would be able to keep myself from knocking over all my chips let alone play fancy tricks with them. My mouse was shaking all over the place, it was sad.

How do people eliminate that problem when they move over to live events? Eventually, I'll play in a real casino, and I'd rather not embarrass myself with girlish shaking. My apologies to any girls who are reading, and likely shake less than i do.

If that's the case, you should probably lower limits when you play live, else you risk giving off tells.

Even if you were playing live, your natural reactions would prevent you from shaking that much because you'd force yourself to not do it.

Also, shaking just implies being nervous...doesn't really tell someone how good that person's hand is. The person could be nervous b/c he wants to be called, he's bluffing or is just excited about the stakes.
