I only play online because I can't play live. The advantages of playing online are convenience and accessibility. The disadvantage in my case is the possibility of losing connection during the game. I am from Ukraine, we have a war and there are often interruptions with communications and electricity.

The bad thing about online poker is that you can lose a lot of money quickly without even thinking about it too much. The bad side of live poker is that people can behave inappropriately and aggressively, there are people who do not know how to lose.

online poker

You can play several tables or several tournaments
If you prefer (at least I don't), you can use opponent statistics programs
It's easier to see the positions you play.
You can easily keep track of your chips in Big Blinds
You can easily control your position in tournaments
You can tag or take notes of players you participate with

live poker

The excitement of the table, feeling cards, is pure adrenaline.
You must be much more observant, you must invest your time in observing the opponents at your table very well.
You must observe all the hands, and memorize so that later when it is your turn you know how to act against that opponent.
it's beautiful to play live:):):)

I think the only disadvantage of online is being disconnected... If I'm not including lack of places for players to play legally lol

.... The disadvantages of live are many, cost, travel, much slower pace, time consuming, people lol

A big negative is that you cannot see your opponents in person to observe them. Positive is you see way more hands.

One of the main advantages of online poker is that it is always there. The downside is that it is a much faster game than what you will see in a casino or poker room. In a casino or card room, you can play thirty hands per hour.

The positive aspects of online poker are that you can log in anytime and play whenever you want and anywhere at work at home or when you play offline tournaments, you get a lot of emotions and live communication at the poker table is cool

For me, the positives outweigh the negatives by a lot. The negatives are no physical tells and that live poker is generally way softer. The positives are that you get to play way more hands per hour, you can easily track your hands and statistics, and you don't have to wear pants.
