How can I be better than Online chess than Live?

I don't know why, I suck at live for some reason, maybe I don't like being timed quickly or online gives me time to think things through. Is this the same to anyone else because my online is 200 points higher than my live account.

    It seems that in general, people have a much higher rating in online chess than live. Mine is about 600 points higher.

    Live chess puts the time problem on your shoulders.

    I try to make the time problem work for me.

    Know your opening and whip out the easy moves.  3 seconds each no more.

    when it getts tight take some time but keep it moving.

    Look at the clock ; try to play the clock  ; Have a move ready and get it done in 1 second  . (  I can do this )   Study the board on his time.

    Make sure to win some games on time.  Watch the clock ;simple position

    and ride to victory.  I am talking of Blitz chess  (  5 minutes  each player )

    Look for me and send me a message (  Doublebruce  )

    Have your move ready and in 2 seconds it's his turn  ; keep his clock running.   Good luck
