I love poker in the USA because it is so diverse, at my poker rooms any given day we will have 10-15, or more, nationalities represented at any given time (especially with being so close to Dearborn, especially in our cash games. Live - it keeps the real idiots out of the game because one comment and you are kicked out of most rooms, even against women, I threw a guy out last week that was drunk and called the two ladies at the table bitches. He apologized the next week so I didnt ban him. It is a game that is played worldwide, so most of the haters cant play - LOVE IT!
Online is a different story - with no real way to tell who people are, the haters come out to hate - thats why online can be such a nasty place, someone can come and say whatever they want with no accountability, you even see it here, opens the door for the children who need attention. Which is one reason why I always prefer live
