I'm not saying one's easier or harder than the other, BTW, but you might also want to consider:
- Typically when you're playing live, you're playing for a lot more money. There's no such thing as a 5/10c table or a $5 SnG live. There's a reason you spend longer thinking - it's because you're not playing with pocket change.
- Live, you sometimes need the discipline to fold every hand for an hour straight. And there's no such thing as multi-tabling to keep you amused while you do it.
- Sure, there's tells. There's also false tells, and you need to spend a long time learning which are which.
- The biggest one, for me: live poker dosn't come with a HUD.
Like I said, one ain't necessarily easier or better or anything than the other: I dig both. But I don't think one can be written off as easier than the other.
Im talking mainly like 1/2 NL here not 5/10 and above, Im not at that level yet live. Well I could sit but I dont feel my skill level is good enough to beat it yet. So most of your casual 1/2 players are casual players, you can assume sitting there you will be one of the best players.
these players dont give false tells, these players usually dont even know what a shower is let alone a false tell. Sometimes they cant tell the difference between their cards. Hud live is that thing between your ears, if you are folding for a hour dont get up and talk to that cute waitress but watch the players and that should be all you need to get all the info you could get from HUD anyway.
again there is not cut and dry answer here, some think live is easier some thing online is. For me I have played more live in past so obviously I would think live would be easier.
