Cash Games & Tournaments Are Not Different But More Profit In Cash
For a long time I have had the misconception that tournaments are for dumber players and in retort people told me they are just different but one isn't better than the other for profiting. This is impossible because if two things are different, one will be better at a specific task than another (at least by a minute degree).
The fact of the matter is that all a cash game is, is a tournament where your M-zone is always equal to your BB. Make decisions you'd make in a tournament with the M-zone set equal to your buy-in and you will understand that all a cash game is a perpetual early-game tournament setting.
Tournaments aren't different because they end, they are different because of the maximum loss and minimum gain and THIS is why ultimately you can make more at cash games than tournaments on average because you have no cap on the amount that your exploitative hands on other's profit you in real hard cash.
I agree that tournaments are more thrilling though and will keep playing them as you can't become a top tier world renowned poker player if you sit at cash games all day. We must ask ourselves if glory or raw profit matters more and for me it was always both so I will get better at tournaments but I will know that cash games are my fallback if I have a couple losing sessions.
