I've got a question for you (or whoever else plays poker online).....Although I'm not a card player myself, I've always thought that half the strategy of playing Poker is trying to read the other players expressions to try to figure out if someone is bluffing or really has a good hand (hence the expression of when a good player that shows no emotion has a 'poker face')
Doesn't playing online take away that important strategy of the game?
I don't ever play to often in real life, but I got a girl playing who plays in the real world and cleans up. She is totally horrible online though cause of this reason

IMO, it's much fairer when you can't actually read people like in real life because some people are simply terrible are keeping a good poker face. With online poker it all comes down to the pure strategy and probabilities associated with the way they make their bets. It all comes down to how they play and not the look on their face. Of course I can understand the fun some people have with reading people, but I don't particularly see it as a crucial part of the game.
