*Somebody* sounds a little spoiled.
I don't understand why anyone would prefer a tiny little screen with numbers instead of chips where you can't see the people you're playing against over live, real-life poker. Sure, it's slower, sure it's not perfect, but it's real.
Don't get me wrong, I play online, too. It's easier than getting out to the casino, and I can't stand all the smoke when I do go. But I always have more fun sitting at the table and shuffling chips than I do online, skipping back and forth to youtube to prevent boredom.
And I like that there can be dealer errors. It makes poker more 'organic.' In real life, stuff doesn't go off without a hitch. Poker is a fantastic metaphor for real life in general.
