It is a well-known fact that online poker is very different from what they play in live casinos, and this fact matches the difference in between live poker tournaments and those conducted on the Web. Online poker tournament rules do not require one’s physical presence and video picture during the tournament, while live tournaments have such a requirement. Next significant distinction lies in playing in front of the computer in both cases, but using different software applications. Finally, live tournaments are not as fast as other online events, which may be considered as a good sign for the quality of the game in general.
All the said differences may be considered as advantages in favor of live poker and its tournaments, but the technical side of the question is still more expensive in comparison to usual online gambling and tournaments. This is the key reason why they play live poker more often and in more places than live poker. However, the existing trends in the world of gambling are shifting to video imaging and video extensions in most advanced games and software packages. This is so because the potential of video games is not exhausted yet, and this side of technical achievements is still in the beginning of its evolving progress. In addition, if to try to find another, different direction of development of gambling, it may be impossible to define any other, which is not related to communications and video features of the applications. However, everything is possible, and in poker especially.
