Trying to compare "live" play to "online" is just pointless for so many reasons
-The other poster who mentioned being able to play on multiple tables makes a great point!
-You can play any time of the day from the privacy of your own home in your underwear
-You can instantly look up stats on people using websites like OPR
-Your playing easily "DOUBLE" the amount of hands per hour that you could in a live game
- You can be selective to an extent about who you want to play against...GL going to a brick'n'mortar casino and requesting a specific table..at least at my local one they "tell" you where to go...it makes colluding a bit harder
I use poker software to help my game, and its absolutely essential I think when you consider that many of your opponents are using the exact same software. If you compare a poker match to a "battle"...wouldn't you want to be as well equipped as possible before taking on the enemy? sure you would...and since many software programs are permitted by the poker sites
themselves...you'd be foolish not to put yourself on an even playing field as many other players. The ideal thats its not "noble" or something to use these programs is idiotic...
