Someone plays to earn money, someone plays because this is the only source of income, and someone plays for fun

Simply because there is no way to play live.

I think it's because it's a way to relax and make money at the same time

The fact that more poker games are accessible online constantly throughout the year, including all holidays and weekends,
is probably the biggest advantage of people playing online poker. This implies that if you want to play online poker,
you will have a better chance of finding a game that you want to play regardless of your schedule. Additionally,
compared to actual local casinos, the majority of online poker rooms offer more games. Online poker is certainly an
ideal option if you are one of those folks, who live in a small town, with no casion nearby to play on the weekends.

I believe people play online poker because it’s extremely convenient. You do not have to drive to a poker room to play cards. Also, winning and the release of dopamine is also very appealing and addictive.

there are several reasons for a person to play poker. People who like to compete, who like to follow numbers, probabilities, challenges, who dream of a good prize or seed and play for fun, find everything they are looking for in poker.

Online you see many more hands than life, even though edges are A LOT smaller, overall it adds up to a higher hourly playing online. Thats the reason for me anyway :)
the same goes for me =)

I personally like to play poker online because it is much easier and more relaxed for me to sit in front of the computer or in bed relaxed than to play live poker.

My nearest Casino is a good hour and a half away by car, so I started to play on-line for the practice I needed, I didn't play my first live event until I had made a few cashes On-line, and it took me nearly as long to cash in a live event as it did on-line,
Playing on-line is totally different than playing in a live Tournament, as you can see your opponents and if you are a good judge of character you can get more information about a player by watching them as they play certain hands.

I play online poker because it's fun, I like it a lot, and it's also profitable, you can earn a lot of money if you study hard.

I would prefer to play live, but there is no possibility in my area, so the online solution remains.
The fact is that there is no faster way to play poker. Lots of game types, quick buy-in to tournaments and cash games. It wouldn't go that fast live.

Hi all

I like to play poker for a wide variety of reasons such as.

- Having Fun
- Making Money
- Kill free time
- Playing with friends
- Being part of a community like CC , Discord and Twitch
- Convenience
- Opportunity
- Keeping the mind sharpe

Probably some others but that's the vast majority.

Gl on the felt all and as always see you at the tables.

Personally, I play online because in my city there are no casinos where you can play live poker, so my only available option is online poker rooms and it's more comfortable for me because I can try several rooms and many different tournaments. modalities and that allows me to learn more about poker.

Firstly, it's an intellectual game and charges my brain. Secondly, there is a chance to make money or invest. And thirdly, I have a lot of time after graduation and I'm unemployed

Because it is done quickly and no additional costs are needed, you have made a deposit and you can already start playing

Exactly the same - the comfort of home is like nowhere else... Also, you don''t need to keep a poker face :D
Plus I am an introvert, so going in a casino is a nightmare, so I prefer online poker 100 times over.

The advantages of online poker compared to the casino is that we can play several tables at the same time, we can have an idea of the profile of our opponents thanks to the HUD, we can choose the time of our sessions because the tables are accessible 24 hours a day.

All these points mentioned present an advantage for Pro players and it allows them to generate a profit against amateur players.
