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
Yes, I'm sure it's that way for a lot of people....As someone else who replied suggested, it is apparently possible to 'read' people even online,
by watching how they bet (which is something I hadn't considered) ...But I'm sure for many people it's probably easier to do this in person than
online....Although I can imagine that there could be people with certain personalities might actually find it easier doing it the other way.
Still it almost seems to me that ;'reading' someone over the computer wouldn't be as much fun as doing it in real life....Though, as i said...I've
never been much of a card player. I've never been good at 'reading' people in general......So I doubt I'd be very good at playing it online or in
