Hello my dear community members!:ciao:
I recently read a post whose author wrote that an online rocker is more difficult for him than a live one. This prompted me to conduct a survey.
:questionm:questionm:questionm:questionm:questionm
Which poker do you choose: online or live?
Please comment, what is the reason for your choice?

I didn't do the poll simple because I've never played live. So I'm not certain.

After years of playing online I'm not sure I could hold a poker face together!

Online, definitely. Perfect for an antisocial person like myself.

Live poker requires a lot of money, online poker suits many.

Online, definitely. Perfect for an antisocial person like myself.

I prefer online play because I can play more tournaments and in a short time.
Thank you for your opinion and answers in this topic.:)

Playing live gets your adrenaline pumping 1,000 times more than playing online. That is why my preference, in addition to touching the chips on the cloth and seeing the players face to face, is much better for me.

Well, there's some truth to that. :)
For me personally, comfort and tranquility are better, I have enough adrenaline without poker. :D
Thank you for the reasoned answer. Please give your vote in the voting for live poker so that I can analyze the results of the survey later:)

LIVE,
There is nothing like sitting and listening, talking, watching, and interactions with other players face to face.

It's the same as going to a live sporting event vs. watching on TV. You still enjoy the game on TV, but, it can't match the atmosphere.

These are very interesting associations. Thank you for your reasoning:)

It's been a few years since I played live poker but I remember really enjoying it. There is simply no comparison between live poker and online poker. There is a completely different mood. But as far as the bad beats are concerned, they exist live as well as online. I'm only playing online at the moment and probably won't be playing live anytime soon

Online is more convenient. There are different limits for folks to play, more games that you won't find at a brick and mortar casinos unless you're in like Vegas and when you're done you just turn off your computer instead of driving home and that in itself could be an ordeal if you live a few hours away or live near some crowded areas known for traffic.

But for deciding if its harder or not, you would need to know how to identify the type of players at a table either online or live and see how your game would stack up against them. Online, .01/.02 cents is the entry but I've seen tables where player to the flop stats were around 20% so that's usually a tight solid table so you could assume they at least know starting hands.

At the casino the entry game for NL Holdem is $1/2 you'll find recreational players playing very bad at some tables but sometimes you'll find folks that can play and just want a win their buy in of $200/300 for the day and then head home and they aren't to be trifled with.

So, I wouldn't use generalization but actually find out what you're getting into by working on table selection skills either online or live. Oh and if you don't like the table you're at (ie folks aren't talking/enjoying themselves, are actually paying attention to what's going on, folding a lot meaning they actually have a clue) or see them taking notes on hands then you might want to tell the dealer or the floor person walking around to find another seat since that table might not be so soft for you even at the entry live table.

So I would say to pay more attention to the quality of the folks at the tables rather than the limits you're playing at either live or online.
