I've been playing live in person games for about 8 months now and since online gambling is now legal in my state I'd like to know how different is online poker from irl games? Is there anything new I should know before I delve into this new aspect of poker?
Online poker is a completely different realm of poker. The best advice is to cash out, just once. Have the money in hand, and know you are playing for more than just virtual money. That's the best piece of advice I could give you. How you play and how you manage your money is completely up to you.
Imo all down to betting patterns , watching the players that play the most hands at the table look at his/her actions pre post turn and river when he shows a winning hand or mucks , after a while they become complacent and this is where you trap but even then , there's always suckouts far more then live , good luck !!
The only plus in the live game is live chat, everything else online is better, more comfortable, and most importantly play online is much more profitable than live, both tournaments and cash games, because you play 10-20 hands or tournaments more, and if you play pravilny mathematical poker and the profit will be, respectively, many times more.
