This is a discussion on Where is Your Favorite Place to Play? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Where do you like to play poker?
1. Online poker
2. Electronic Poker Tables
3. Live poker
Of course, online poker is the easiest way to play. Also i need to say, that live poker is out of law in some countries. For sure, live poker is better, but sometimes you just can,t play live poker and you need to play it online.
The comfort and ease of playing at home while be able to relax is great and unmatched. To play live I have to drive about 45 minutes to an hour. If it was closer I likely would play live much more because I find it much easier. Live players are not shoving light and seem to be much easier to read and become transparent. Iíve only played electronic poker 1 week on a cruise many years ago. I won so I obviously enjoyed myself.
Playing live poker is really fun especially if you have a couple of drunk people playing with you:0) But for now I am indicted to online poker:0) never played nor have the want to play electric poker sounds like a house game:0)
unfortunately in Russia it became impossible to play poker because of the silly and non-objective interference of the state. At first they were forbidden to play the live game, now they are struggling with playing on the Internet. Therefore, we donít have to choose and we all play online, although, of course, playing live cannot be compared with anything. This is the best option. Touching and touching cards and chips creates truly unique sensations of the sporting spirit of competition.
Never played video poker and have no desire too. Prefer live poker over on-line, but like the convenience of playing at home. Normally the live sessions are quite long. Like to play late into the night to early morning which limits it too Friday or Saturday night.

I tried all 3 of your proposals.
usually play onlne and rarely live in the past 4 or 5 times in electronic tables but now in Italy its impossible to find again.
surely live is the most fascinating and challenging but online is much more convenient
I am assuming that you are asking where everyone likes to play these poker formats, not just why. Then again, I am new to this forum so I could be wrong. If that is the case, cut me some slack.
I play online poker at ACR but would like to find some other good sites with freerolls that can be played in the U.S. Honestly, that is why I clicked on this post to begin with.
I just hate the video live poker, it really takes a lot of interaction out of the live game and you don't get near as many 'tells' from your opponents. Some casinos only offer this type of live poker, but I avoid it if possible.
Live poker is by far the best way to enjoy the game, with all facets of the game involved. I play at Firekeepers in lower Michigan when I get a chance but it is almost a 2 hour drive for me so it does not happen very often.
Online poker is the cheapest and most easily available way to play poker. You just need computer or phone and internet and you are good to go at any time. Due to this i mostly play online. The other type that i play are home games for few bucks which are without any doubt much more entertaining than online play but require more time for the game and for the organization as well as finding appropriate place where to play. I have never been in casino to play serious live game but will try to do that later this year to see what the experience will be.
I have never played live poker before. I think it's more convenient to play online poker. You sit at home and you have the opportunity to choose the time to play. And do not need to spend time on the trip.
I love playing at Derby Lane Poker Room which is live they have high hand jack pots every hour that pay $500 for the player and everyone at the table gets $50 for each player at the table. I play $5 / $10 no-limit holdem which is a good game or I play $5/$10 PLO8 which I love because all the holdem players have no clue how to play it and will go bust with two pair or go bust with bad lows if you know how to play it you get rich real quick playing PLO8 in a live setting. those are my favorite games at my favorite place to play them.
I mostly like an online game, but sometimes I like and play live. When I chose it, I would definitely choose an online game definitely because it's a lot faster game and I can play a lot more tournaments than when I play live. Maybe it's a better feeling on a live game or I prefer online.
