I prefer to play at a real table, so you can see the reaction of your opponents and study their game, while online it is difficult.

I've never played at real tables, I've been playing online poker for about 10 years, I just won't be able to play with real players)

i don't see how i would ever want to play live poker again, except maybe for home games . i can't see how i would want to spend money on gas to drive somewhere and play a way bigger buy-in (no $1 mtts live) when i can stay home, save money, and play the same game.

I prefer live poker but because of the epidemic, it's better to play online, players playing online are usually more solid than live poker players.

I prefer to play online. I don't have much experience playing live and I'm not very good at not showing my tells.

I only play online and this is due to the fact that in my city I don't have a casino where poker is played to play live, I really want to sit at the table with other players and see their expressions, it is definitely another game with different emotions than sitting at home ...

I prefer live tables, from my experiances there is much more fishes live... For example on PS 100$ tournament quality is awesome, and on 100€ live tournament i played there were a lot of limpers or preflop calling stations

Real or online?

I prefer real table because is more fun to talk to people and you can see tells and people reactions, but is more practical to play online. You spend less money, can play whenever you want, there are many stakes and options.

Real tables are the best. The atmosphere, the sounds, even simply playing with chips as your holding the nuts. Online is cool but live is the most fun.

Opition

Face-to-face poker is more complicated, since you have to take care of your gestures, online is easier. :cool:

I learned face to face, only due to this covid crap do I play online. I find u can get way more hands in while playing online, but the bad beats are way worse and make it almost look like PS is trying to make big pots for a bigger rake.

I have never played live. The pace of online means it is probably preferred for me, although it is obviously lacking in the social aspect.

I really want to play live poker and I think that soon such an opportunity will appear, because the coronavirus is declining. And also new casinos are opening in Ukraine with the opportunity to play live poker
So I will be there:)

playing at home with your time and space control gives me great results, live and always stressful

both, from what you say to see the reactions of the opponent of course, it is better live, but online gives a lot of ease of play at all times.

Hello.
I only play online because it's convenient and comfortable for me. I like to play poker only at home, where I can be as focused as possible. Also, I don't have time and I don't have the opportunity to play live.

Playing live take a skill like no other. Almost every hand u get into big pots with, has your heart RACING. And u have to act with body movements with this adrenaline running thru you...no easy to do and no leave a tell saying “I HAVE THE NUTZ!”. And same goes with bluffing, u have such aggressive behaviours being portrayed while u have nothing. No easy to cover up. Good thing wsop isn’t online

Real table is much more entertaining but live poker also requires more time and money investment than online.
