This is a discussion on Online poker and live poker within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I personally have not had the opportunity to play a live poker tournament. What are the advantages and disadvantages of playing live poker compared to
I only play online. I don't have the opportunity to play live. I find that playing live is much more difficult than online. Obviously, playing online has a number of advantages, for example, you play online without leaving home, in a comfortable environment and significantly save your own time.
Live poker advantages:
1. Much more entertaining at least for me. You can't compare real chips, real table, real dealer and real players with computer screen.
2. Generally softer and much smaller fields than online games.
Online poker advantages:
1. You can play from anywhere anytime as long as you have internet and phone or pc/laptop.
2. Much cheaper than live games.
