I agree. Online poker can only be a poor substitute to live play.The more I think about it, the more I think this is just more of the "online poker sucks" think, for me.
Even the site I play on, where the guy keeps the accounts, and lets people cash out once a week - I realized early on that I wasn't going to cash out once a week, because that just creates more work for everybody when I inevitably have to deposit again. So I decided to let my account run up to a certain threshold, and only cash out the excess. Which worked fine I guess, but for me, leaving money in some online poker account makes it less real. And like chips in a casino, easier to piss away.
For me, poker is walking in, putting cash on the table, and (hopefully) walking out that night with a fat pocket full of cash. Anything else is a poor substitute.
If I have a great night, I want at least see that reflected in a nice e-mail from paypal when my winnings get transferred back to me.
This is how we do it at our little PCF Europe homegame and I wouldn't want to change that.
