    well live poker is a joke and is soft as hell (especially at the casino) so i could see why

    but i get bored playing only like 25-30 hands an hour when online im playing 4-8 tables so its closer to 300 hands an hour, i have to be in the mood to play live poker

    also if you guys want to find games near you there are a bunch of websites that you can use

    http://www.homepokergames.com/ is a good one

    yes there is one called the maratime poker club.

    I play online and live. I like live, because I like reading who I am playing.

    when playing online its just a shit show.

    what site are you on?

    what limits?

    lol there are ways of reading people online, if you play seriously get poker tracker keeps track of your hand history and while you're playing you get a HUD (heads up display) and gives you stats on everyone you're playing based ont he hand history's with them

    so you see how aggressive they are, how many hands they voluntarily put money in the pot (how much they limp) their preflop raise, their 3-bet% etc etc

    i play 25nl 50nl online on full tilt (because i get rakeback) at the casino i play200nl

    live is easier compared to online, in a month i can play more hands than i would in a year live, so i get more experience there imo

    plus i do play live, and live is a "shit show" as you would describe it

    I enjoy the social aspect of a live game. I wouldn't consider it harder or easier to play online than live. Poker is poker. There are a lot of advantages to playing online I get that. I just prefer playing live.

    This year I'm thinking of playing a live omaha tournament at the wsop. I really enjoy hi/lo but I need a lot of work on my game.
