It is not correct to compare online poker and live poker. The structure of such tournaments is very different. For example, try to find an online tournament where the blinds increase every 15 or 30 minutes, that is, very slowly. In such tournaments, players also rarely go all-in.

Also, try to find a live tournament for $0.25 😀

Maybe it's because online you can jump from one tournament to another more easily than live. A lot of MTTs are available online, it's less the case when you play live.

That's right. :)
Offline the buy-in for tournaments is many times more expensive. Also, once you're eliminated from one tournament, there's rarely an opportunity to jump right into another. You think much more carefully about whether you want to jeopardize your tournament life just for fun with your hand.

There are countless ways to continue playing online and as a result, players are far more willing to gamble with weaker hands.

Live game - concentration on the opponent and his emotions. In a live game, you can collect information about the strength of the opponent's hand through his tells - physical clues. Therefore, in order to put all the chips, you need to think everything over and weigh the pros and cons. Often the game is too passive. The aggressive nature of preflop play is rare, and postflop poker players also prefer to cold call. Few people understand that optimal decisions will not be profitable every time. And in a QQ vs AK situation, poker players can incorrectly perceive the defeat and as a result come to the wrong conclusions, for example, not pushing with QQ anymore.

It might be harder for someone to decide to go all-in live than online.
Online, it is easier to go all-in with few chips, because if you end up being eliminated, you can immediately join another tournament. It's more difficult in real life, I think it's harder to go all-in while 8 or 9 other people are watching, and after you show the :9h4: and :3h4:, everyone says "how stupid", even though you can say "but suited" 😁.
So that's why it can be harder to go all-in live.

This ties in with the other issue of shared passwords particularly freerolls. It doesn't cost them anything, so no risk on their part. No live play would allow you to submit a few cents, so the option of going all in with proper buy ins, isn't so frequent.

because people on the Internet can still go to All-in with any cards and you sit wondering if he has a strong hand or he's just a fool in life, the game is more correct and there are no fools there, and if so, a little: I CAN'T laugh:

Smaller stakes its easier to justify making the choice to go all in when you are willing to flip and sometimes it looks silly but building a stack early then playing solid later will always be a thing for the more aggressive players that can adjust their play.

I believe that many things happen more frequently in online poker than in live. But we see so many all ins in online at freerolls, very low stakes or low buy ins.

I think all in happens more frequently on online poker because the levels increase faster than live poker. I play several turbo tournaments at the same time, so, I usually go all in a couple of times everyday.

I think another reason might be that when you go all-in at a live game and bust out you pack up and go to your vehicle and do whatever. Online you just hop in another trny; easy-peasy.

because there are many amateur players who want to make money quickly and without strategy, they play all in with any Ax card, or low pairs, that´s why you see few amateur players constantly reaching a final table.

many factors intervene so that this is more online, we could not finish mentioning enough aspects, you are one click away, tiredness, fed up, ease, faster knowledge of the entire table, many hands in minutes, speed in the game, eager to play when you get good hands, I think many aspects are involved and I was missing several, maybe I will mention the worst choices for which they are given but it is not only for those aspects

I haven’t read all replies but a lot of tourneys online is freerolls and not big buy ins… then its easy for people to go all in, and often there is unlimited rebuys for a long time (with buy ins)…

because the buy-in in live poker is not $1 or free, you try to watch tournaments for $1050

Online is a lot different to live games

For example if you watch 30 minutes of a live versus online, you will see that alot more hands are dealt in that time online, players are more agressive online and you will see alot pots being played.

Also because there is alot more hands being played, there's more chance of getting a bad beat or seeing premium hands crushed

The only way for someone to get eliminated from a tournament is to go all-in and lose, so its simply not true, that this does not happen in live tournaments. If that was actually the case, the tournament would go on forever, which it clearly does not. So presumably you mean, that there is more wild and loose play online, where people go all-in incorrectly. That might be, but it certainly depends on, which games you play online. A live tournament typically cost at least 100$ to play, and if you buy in for the same amount of money online, you will see less wild and crazy action, than you do in a freeroll or a 1$ game.

Also live players are sometimes to conservative. They drove a long way to the casino and spend those 100$ or more to have some fun, and therefore they want to stay and focus on that rather than maximizing their chance of winning the tournament by going all-in, when its the right thing to do. So those "wild" online players, who regularly go all-in, might just be playing good poker, while the live players are not.

Probably live players think more about their prestige. No one sees anyone online and no one cares what people think of them.

Online you are usually in the comfort of your own home, you will have easy access to another tournament, countless possibilities that are not offered to you being live.

You tend to see it more on freerolls as the players who do it alot have nothing to lose if it's free to enter.
