      I wouldn't say it was the better way to go as I love to play live poker, but it can certainly help a lot with improving your live game as online gives you the opportunity to play a hell of a lot more hands and you you get faced with many different situations more often which can become important in deciding what to do when next faced with a similar situation

      Live poker and online poker are different in my opinion but the mathmatics general strategies are the same. Tell your friend to get online, sign up to Pokerstrategy and start learning and playing as much as he can, both live and online and he will soon get in to the swing of things and will deveolp his own preference and strategy. Im sure he will become as hooked as the rest of us.

      Hey :)

      So your friend doesn't want to learn to play online poker just how to win at live games? Does he play poker at all? Have any experience? If no tell him to get his ass down here to :D just tell him its easier to get the hang of the rules online because you can play more hands in the same amount of time so you can get the hang of whats good and whats bad a bit quicker etc

      If he really doesn't want to play online you probs won't be able to convince him go round explain the rules and enjoy a night in casino :)
