Luke lacks experience.
I know, right? Nobody ever brought that up
Seriously though, Luke only dueled Vader. He even went that far as mirrored Vader's style.
Luke is a great duelist, and has raw power, but he's unrefined.
On the other hand Kenobi might just be one of the most experienced Jedi before the NJO. He's one of the smartest, most cunning and tenacious Jedi (the most, in Windu's opinion). He has a ton of tricks (like electronic manipulation, Luke is missing one real hand afterall). He has great stamina and endurance as well. His Sokan is very likely superior as well (inb4 high ground). And has great Force showings in his own right.
In short Kenobi is better equiped. Good as Luke may be, I don't think he can break through Kenobi's Soresu. Or at least not before a marathon fight. And a marathon fight will give ample opportunities for Kenobi to exploit something.
While Luke would batter through with raw power, Kenobi would use finesse. And I think Kenobi has better defense for raw power, than Luke has for finesse.
