Default What % of your plays do you place online?

For me it's about 90/10 in favor of online.

If it was up to me, I'd play 100% of my wagers online. I can't because the online limit is usually between 500 and 1 dime. Some places do have 2 dime limits, which sometimes still isn't good because some of my plays are larger than that. But nothing beats betting online. It's a laid back atmosphere. You go at your own pace. If you see something you like, bam, you put it in in seconds. If you want to go for a crap, you can. My toilet is 8 feet from my desk, so I can get up with my pants down at my ankles and look at the screen, then go back and continue my crap. If you want to go make a sandwich, you can. All you do is sit in front of a screen and look at #s in front of you. You can even watch a movie while you sit back and enjoy a nice cold one while also looking at your screen at your own pace while you put in bets.

But here's the best part of it. You don't have to call up, hear a busy signal, or get this hispanic girl who either doesn't haven't a clue or she can't speak english and very hard to understand. You end up spending 7 minutes on the phone with her, and all for one stupid play. It's even more frustrating when they hear your password, and they're having trouble logging you in because they don't know what the hell I am saying. I'd say something like my password is 1064T as in Tom. So they say P, I say, no T as in Tom, they say, yeah P like Tom, and I say no, T like Tom, you deadbeat, and they say, I know sir, P like Tom, Or they say, can you hold on a second sir, and they transfer you to another department. And another even more frustrating thing is you see the line on the computer that you want, of course you can't put it in because they only take 500 limit, so you call it in, only to find that the line changed. Why wouldn't it? It's only been a 6 minute process trying to get someone to read me a line because I was stalled and transferred a few times.

If there ever came a time in life when all books took at least 3 dimes a game on the net, I would never have to ever call up these places ever again. I hate calling in bets. It's so god damn annoying. When you want to place a bet online, it literally takes 4 seconds, and you get the line you want, usually. 2 clicks of a button, and it's done. Not the same thing when you call up.
