Page 2 - This is a discussion on Cash game or tournament within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; If you wanna make money and get better at poker should I play cash Games or tournaments
I think tournaments are a good choice for the casual/beginner poker player because you don't have to worry about going on tilt and losing your whole bankroll in a few minutes. Tournaments allow you to manage your bankroll easier than cash games.

The best place to make money is cash game but first you need to be a skill player and play lots of MTT (the scholl of poker)

To each one. For me, for example, I like playing MTT more than cache. You should try both of them. and then choose yourself independently.

my opinion is that the tournament wants time and patience while in the cash you can get some money in a little while, and you are a bit lucky of course ...

I think you should do both. Each will make certain parts of your poker game better. cash games will help you play deep with lots of big blinds and hand reading skills ect. mtt for short stacks and shove/call ranges ect.

I play both, however I should really only play cash. Think of it this way.
In tournament play you buy in for say $150, that's a field of at least 100 players. Not counting add-ons, rebuys, etc. That means to cash you have to win a few coin flips at minimum, and beat out 95% of the field.
In cash you can buy in for $500, and win $400 on your first hand.

I play both, and I enjoy both for different reasons. I also think both have their own set of pros & cons.
If you're working on building a bankroll with a very limited out of pocket investment, I would recommend tournaments. Less stress/pressure, and you can get a higher ROI for your buyin... but you also have to be a good tournament player to make the money. (Note-- you can be a good poker player, but need to know and respect the difference between tournaments & cash.)
On the other hand, if you HAVE a decent bankroll to play with-- cash is much easier to profit from. Know when to walk away, and know when to run... but you don't have to play for long hours and outlast XX(X) other players to cash out.

Depends on your play style, preference, etc. "No easy money" method. Both have their pros and cons. Would recommend giving both a try with play money or microstakes, find one you like, and master that specific game.

Well my profits are better in tournaments than cash games. But that depends on what focus you want to have, how much you are willing to spend, how much you want to earn. Tournaments for being longer and tiring, the chance to win something will depend on luck and skill. And in the cash game, the winnings may even be faster in the short run, but the risk of breaking is higher, especially when your opponent is luckier than yours, and you can defeat an Ace of Three with a straight A-5, as it already occurred to me, that with the person paying an all in with 2-3 and the flop coming out A-4-5. But they're game stuff.

It really depends on your style. If you like sitting down, doing well for a bit, and then leaving, go for cash. If you need the finality and competition of a tournament in order to succeed, do that or sit and gos.
Personally I can't seem to do well at cash games. The lack of a defined "beginning and end" gets to me.

You have to find your game. I like tournament because you can be a little more flexible in the play. You have to adjust to the blinds and you know where you have to end up. I stink at cash games but I still like to sit and play at them.
