I guess the difference for me is that when I played online it's at the micro limits and I was just doing it to pass the time. When I go to the casino, I'm playing at least 1-2 NL with a $300 buy in instead of .10/.25 NL with a $25 buy in.
Yeah I'm the say way. It's hard to be grinding out a 1/2 table at a B&M then come back home to the micros. I moved up to 1/2 online and it still didn't feel the same as live. Online I'm more of a sit-n-go player but I do mix it up in ring games, although I don't multi-table much. I'll agree with Snakes that yeah it does get a little boring when your cards go cold but it's nothing that my mp3 player can't solve unless I'm getting really tired, at which point I really shouldn't be playing anyway.
