re: Poker & taking tournament play to cash tables.
Try checking out some strategy videos on Cardplayer.com (the website for Cardplayer magazine). There are many strategy videos on cash game play, with the narrator describing his/her play on the tables, while you watched a taped version of them (sometimes 3 or 4 at a time). Very interesting stuff in regards to player reads and how to bet out (often much differently then one might suspect).
These are 'winning plays' by winning players,.. not all that common to find online.
Check it out,.. you might just find it interesting. I have.
I too seem to prefer the tourney (sng) style of game,.. just seem to fare better in them. Don't particularly like the cash game,... if I don't 'like it', chances are I won't be gettin' good at it. I also find it kind of boring at times,...but probably because I am so much more familiar with tourney style of play. Don't fix it if it ain't broke.
