This is a discussion on Online poker or live poker? within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; Hello guys, now that everyone has been on quarantine, do some of you miss live poker? Does online poker has more fans than live poker?
In online poker, the game is more diverse, there are more weak players, you do not have to wait very long, you do not fold cards for an hour.but it is worth getting under the fabulous rivers a couple of times online and losing the stack, as soon as you start to miss the less dispersed live game.
I miss live poker. Mostly because, it's more like a real activity. Sort of like watching a movie. You can watch a movie at home and that's cool. But if you go to a theater and watch the same movie, it's like a whole different experience.
I prefer live poker for a few reasons. Firstly, I am on vacation when I play live in Las Vegas or Niagara Falls, so I am usually more relaxed and mellow. Secondly, live players do not make the same horribly stupid moves that an online player who is totally anonymous can make...very few players chase down an inside straight, so the really bad beats are fewer. Thirdly, you can never get frozen out of a monster hand like AA because your server went offline for a moment.
