I miss playing poker physically with chips and cards so badly! Online poker is just not as exciting, well final table is exciting regardless I think I just miss interacting with people and seeing the face behind the cards lol
On-line game is faster moving. Don't prefer MTT live but cash tables are better. Rather play a multiple MTTs on-line and cash tables live.

I know what you mean. The social aspect can be a big part of the game. There was even a player that I kept running into on the play money tables who actually talked in the chat box and was nice. Just by chance, we ran into each other over and over throughout a week. Got a lot of chatting in between hands. I've actually looked for him this week, to see if he is around.
Sadly, he is not. I feel like he might have gone busto near the end of the week. He wasn't the greatest player and he was buying in really short (40xbb), although I never saw him buy-in for more than 50xbb. And, the last hand we played he lost everything and said something about losing his chips and being done. I assumed, at the time, he meant that he was done for the day. But, maybe he lost everything and was done (at least at those tables) for a while.
Even chatting online is not the same as the real tables.
I get no respect. When I move all-in, people from other tables call.

I prefer to play online. There are many variations of both tournaments and modalities to play and take advantage of the time we have in this quarantine to try to win a good amount of USD ahah. I also like to play blackjack, roulette and sports in the casino part. A little bit of everything doesn't hurt ahahah

On the contrary, I prefer to play online. It is fast, convenient and safe. At home, I always feel comfortable and can easily concentrate.

I prefer to play online. It is more comfortable and you can stay calm and be more focused on the game.

Live game is just something different. Being on the table with other players and able to talk and see them live is something different. Having real chips in your hands and live dealer also makes it much different. Yes live poker is much more expensive than online and you can't play for less than 1$ like online but with so many months now without live game i really miss it.
