I prefer live. i take the game more serious. Pushing money around and touching it makes me think more about my decisions than just clicking away. i also play higher stakes live also. I really cant take a online 10-20$ sng, tourn etc serious anyway lolol. Playing micro lims are nonexistent live.
i really also have to get into going to my casino cuz its a 2hr drive away. so if i know if im not in the mood to play, im not going. online poker its too convenient- ill logon and play for awhile even when I know im not at my best.
Its also easier for online players especially beginners to move up limits when they know they shouldn’t. like if a beginner loses a few buy ins they get frustrated and could with a few clicks be at a higher limit. But at a casino, if u want to move up its takes a lil more. U gotta pick up ur chips, go to the cage to get more ,(I don’t like to carry a lot of cash), then go on a waiting list to get a seat at the higher table.
Yeah I take my live play more serious because im investing more time, money and effort into it.
