There is no one answer to that, MaQ. It depends on the game and on the other players.
For example, I commonly play 6-max ring games, and I play them a good deal more loose than I would an MTT (early stages of, at any rate), because that is generally how 6-max is best played. Not always, though. If the other players at the table are mostly loose, I`ll sit back and wait for a big hand to trap them.
Like a lot of things in poker, it depends. If you are playing Full Table, then tight is probably the best style. But, again, you might very well loosen up and start stealing if the other players are tight.
Here is a thought:
If you can manage both Ring Games and MTTs to a reasonable standard, play a Ring Game until you win the buyin for the next MTT that appeals to you, then enter the MTT with your "free" buyin.
It`s the way I built my bankroll at each of the sites where I play. It effectively protects you against the variance of MTTs.
