I would prefer the cheap ring games because in a SnG blinds will come, you will be under pressure to play.
With turbo even worse. You would have to be looser and luckier.
In a ring game I can wait for premium pockets and good flops.
Not necessarily. If we take your average low buy-in 10 players turbo, you can still wait for holdings, or at least position and then induce mistakes from opponents (and beleive me, they do make them). You can win these things regularly if you develop the skills needed to thrive (hand selection, blind steal, managing M and Q factors, bluffing
, etc.). And if you can withstand the pressure from the blinds, it becomes an asset to you since you can bully other players around.
Plus, he is not properly for NL ring games already and the small limit games take forever and ever to build a bankroll if we consider the rake. But I agree that once you are properly rolled for cash games, they are far more lucrative and certain than tournaments since you can exploit any edge you're given without fear of losing your shot at making money (cue the old 99 vs AKs discussion, etc.)
