Differences Between Online and Offline Poker
Now, a considerable part of poker players prefer playing poker online to live play. The most generally referred to benefits are:
- no commute
- no tipping
- the action is quicker and more hands can be played in an hour
- you can have different deposit bonuses
- you can play 24 hours a day
- a great variety of games to play
- no second-hand smoke
- you can play at several tables simultaneously
- you don't need to go anywhere.
Also, those playing Internet poker should mind the following features of it, which can affect your strategy and game-style:
Playing sessions are shorter. Players move in and out of the game much more often then they would do in a live play. Thus, you usually don't play with the same opponents for long.
Internet environment - it has been noted that people, when playing on the Internet, are usually more tricky and deceptive, than in a live play. That is because it is impossible to read your opponents faces - and very easy to hide yours. And to raise or bet you have just to clik!
Internet distractions - most commonly, people do not devote themselves to playing poker only. Usually, they can indulge in other things (e.g. net-surfing, reading e-mails, etc.) at the same time - or play at several tables at the same time. That's why Internet players are usually less attentive, and do not follow the course of the game as close as in a live poker game.
