I seem to be making the most money on low level cash games in a shorter time that it takes me in a mtt, but I wonder how you all get on.

I play the lower limit cash tables for Hold'em and occasionally STUD (because most people have no clue what they are doing).
I like to enter the $1-$3 and once in a while the $5.50 (NO REBUY) tournaments on PS. The low level cash games is the way to go. I cannot remember the last time I lost money while playing a session of low LIMIT Hold'em.
I've enjoyed good cash game success and some good tournament success.
I've won a $1 stud tournament ($140), won a freeroll provided by this site ($30), and placed in the money in numerous other tournaments.

I would have to agree that low level cash games are the way to go for time versus return on investment.However, that being said you can make a nice return at a poker stars $1-$3 MTT if you can make the final table

I make the most in heads up but enjoy table games the best.

I have one more $ in cash games but there is nothing like reaching the final table in a big tourney for me!
I have also lost more money in cash games. In tournies, if you do not place, your losses are limited to your entry. In cash games, there is always the temptation to try and get you money back after a bad beat....this can lead to more losses....

re: Poker & cash or tourney?
I think that low limit holdem games can pay well, but it's tough because people will play any two cards. you have to be on the lookout and pay attention to your opponents.

Tournaments for sure...but it also suits my playing style.
