I prefer live over online but since covid live is not really available here so online.

It is'nt even close...live. I've met a lot of nice people and made a lot of friends in my five years playing tournament poker. Aside from here on Cards Chat, mainly in the forums but some from the leagues, I haven't had that same experience online except for my friend upthecreek on Global Poker. It may sound strange, no...it will sound strange, but I'm a solitary person who enjoys being around people. :)

To paraphrase one of the late Paul Harvey's coffee commercials, "Playing poker online is like a kiss on the cheek." ;)

I prefer to play live, but this rarely happens with my friends, so I mostly play online.

Real poker is live poker.

Live is better, there is greater emotion because we have eye contact, we can talk and see the reactions immediately, online we can only see the strategies that each player uses

Live every time, there is no comparison, everybody must rely on their own brain. Online is convenient though

I don’t live in a state where online poker for money is legal so I have always been a live player. I don’t think playing online would be fun for me. I love playing live just because you get to see your opponent react.

I like to do both but most of my play is online as it is easily accessible. There aren't many poker clubs or casinos near me so as a minimum it is a 2 hour drive to play a live game.

Saw recently clip in youtube shorts where some person with social anxiety went to McDonalds drive-through ...

Guess what happened there probably would describe me perfectly in whatever LIVE-thing so online it is ...

It is not possible to play live poker at several tables, so for me it is boring, well, unless you play with friends and have a beer.

I like to play online because it doesn't have to move and is more comfortable.

Only ever played online. I have never been in a casino in my life, think I would like it too much :)

I like playing live much more. But right now playing online makes me more profitable. Because it requires less investment.

I personally prefer online because you can play on several screens simultaneously and the games tend to be faster

my choice is online. I like that you don’t have to go anywhere, you can play even if you don’t have much free time, sit in your pajamas and drink coffee

There are no poker clubs where I live so I prefer online because of its ease.

I prefer live over online poker because of many reasons. The main one being that live poker is social. People go play live poker to be social. Everybody there isn’t just there because they love poker. You get much more casual players in live, live poker is easier than online,

Live for fun. Online for dollars.
I simply can't stand the absence of action for over more than 20 minutes..

I don’t have much experience playing poker live, I would like to play more, but I don’t have the opportunity, I don’t have enough communication live - that’s the thrill

ohline or live
I only play online. I play at home, in the evenings, it's convenient for me and besides, I prefer to play alone when other people or players don't distract me.
