Quite an interesting question. Yes, video communication is definitely an option. Also, you can spend a whole day on a platform like 12Bet
, but it's more about getting a sense of excitement and some kind of adrenaline. If the goal of the game of poker is primarily a company, no internet can replace that. My friends and I get together every Friday for a movie, game, or listening to music. Sometimes we play poker and even make joke bets. I wouldn't play poker in any other conditions, because for me it is primarily related to my friends. It's more like a socialization ritual.
