Not sure I agree entirely with you here stormswa. There are some guys in the SnG arena who absolutely couldn't play a cash game to save ther lives. They have purely built there bankroll up playing SnG's and make a pretty decent living from it.
As for me I built my BR up playing purely SnG's, I'm now mixing it up a little, combining the 2 before I decide which one is gonna take my BR to the next level .
I personally think you can build your bankroll with either type of game. You really need to find out which type suits your style of play. Play well within your BR and build it up slowly. Very few players are lucky enough to build a BR up rapidly, for the majority of us it's a long slow grind.
