Quite awhile back I noticed an extremely common move in online poker that seems to be much less likely in live play.
Lets say you are first to act after the flop in NL or limit for that matter; you hit top pair, or some other strong hand but not the nuts, you raise a decent amount to protect your hand. You are now heads up and your opponent reraises, often I notice most players online calling almost immediatelly, then checking the turn only to fold to a raise by our opponent, I am guilty myself. When I am playing in a live game I am more likely to fold to a similar rearaise and save myself some money. Anybody ever wonder why we do this? Instead of properly thinking the hand through ONLINE we call and likely check the turn just to fold to our oponent's bet unless we hit a monster.
I can think of a few reason but I am curious what my peers think.
1) Because of the shorter amount of time allowed to make moves online we have developed a "bad habit".
Any other good reasons?
