This is a discussion on Online VS Live Poker, Which Do You Prefer within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I love poker face-to-face, because I consider poker being a game of emotions.
What are your preferences and how do you like to describe poker
Live poker is much more entertaining for me. Real players, cards, chips, table and dealer make the game much more fun. Online has the advantage to be much cheaper generally and you can play from any place and at any time as long as you have internet and phone/pc.
Online poker is more profitable than playing live since playing live a bad streak affects your bankroll much more and can last longer, but the emotions that are experienced playing live are more rewarding like winning a tournament.
In online poker we can play several tournaments at the same time and in live obviously we cannot and it took a lot more patience to play the correct hands.
Live poker is good but I prefer online. No need to go anywhere, you can play any game and enjoy it at any time, especially with COVID situation right now. But I am dreaming to play a live poker in Vegas or Macao!

When you playing live you start paying attention to everything whats going on at table, you start picking up some tells and playing the hand more thoughtfully. And it's the whole different feelings.
I love both online and live poker and those are really different games.
I personally prefer live poker because in addition to the game itself, you also have the opportunity to chat with the people at the table about current situations or hands and that also helps you improve, because what better way than to have a good poker dialogue with people at the time who speculate only on everything played? that's a little opinion of mine
I prefer to play online, just because i don,t have experience in live poker and i think this is just 2 different games. Some players can be successful in online poker and they can,t show good results in live games. Right now i think it,s better to play in online poker. Rooms offer different promotions, even if you don,t have a bankroll for the game, there are lots of freeroll and opportunities in different rooms and you can build your bankroll even from a freerolls and do not risk your own money at all.
