I signed up for the tournament to look at the black screen and wait for the eternal download. The loss of a couple of dollars is nothing compared to the headache and nervousness that you can get. There are things over which we have no power and cannot control in our hands, for example, an Internet connection. Today it happened to me, tomorrow it will happen to someone else. Some people are forced to play only online. If there is a casino near you, just go there and enjoy.

I think live poker is better than online poker. It is possible to see your opponent live

I played properly-organised poker live only three times - all in Vegas, when I was there. I thought I would be nervous, but in fact I enjoyed it more than online (and there was no danger of being disconnected). I didn't find that I could spot any 'tells' but I have no doubt that if you played against the same people two or three times you would get an inkling of when they were bluffing, and when they had the nuts. I enjoyed it thoroughly, though I didnlt win anything. But the games lasted two or three hours, so I had my money's worth!

This rarely happens to me. But the most annoying thing is when you expect and can't do anything.

If i could i would play live but playing online these days is much more comfortable because of time issues. Besides there are not many places to play poker live in my city.

online poker is better for me. I'm sitting at home. I smoke and drink coffee. I play very calmly

Live games are incredible!

However I remember my first time in casino. Totally funny (not at that time) when my very tight game was verified by guy playing loose aggresive. He kicked me off with 26o against my AJs.

I kinda do think online is better, I can play on my own schedule, wear what I want, take a break when I want, don't have to deal with sloppy drunks... yeah getting disconnected sucks but so does being stuck at a live table full of people I don't want to be around for hours lol

I rather play online because I can play multiple tables and the game play is much faster. I Live poker the play is just to slow for my liking. But I guess its just a personal like to each person, The bottom line is that which ever you play just enjoy it.

Convenience is king, sometimes. Disconnections are the main reason I don't play higher stakes. It happened to me about 12 yrs ago at Lock Poker. I was in their Sunday main. I think it was a $200 buy-in w/a $50K gtd prize pool. I bought in outright. Things were going great for about an hour and a half, then boom, the power goes out. I mean everything. Someone had crashed into an electrical pole and that was it. Since I live in the "country" it took until the next day to complete the repair. Had I been on a laptop I could have just gone and found a connection, but I was on a desktop model at the time. Guess what I play on now, exclusively? Hindsight is always, as they say, 20/20.

I think live poker is better, but for me is not always possible to play live poker. I can only play live with my friends, because there's no casino near me. And a game with my friends usually don't involve a significant amount of money, so, it's more for the fun. So, my only option is keep with the online poker.

Записался на турнир, чтобы смотреть на черный экран и ждать вечной загрузки. Потеря пары долларов — ничто по сравнению с головной болью и нервозностью, которые вы можете получить. Есть вещи, над которыми мы не имеем власти и не можем контролировать в своих руках, например, подключение к Интернету. Сегодня это случилось со мной, завтра это случится с кем-то другим. Некоторые люди вынуждены играть только онлайн. Если рядом с вами есть казино, просто зайдите туда и наслаждайтесь.

Yes, no one is safe from this in online poker, the lights may be turned off or the Internet goes out, but for example, I still prefer to play online. Well, because it's very convenient and comfortable for me, and I think for many people too. Even online, the game is much faster than in live poker, which has a lot of positive effects.

I only play online and despite the interruptions with communication and electricity, I keep calm and a positive attitude. In our life there have always been and will be unforeseen circumstances that we have to overcome without losing our nerve and positive attitude towards life. Just always be optimistic.
