re: Poker & Do you prefer cash games or tournies?
I occasionally play cash games when waiting for a tourney to start or when I know I only have a little time to play a few hands... but don't seem to be able to do to well. Playing mainly the micro stakes at the moment until I build a sizeable BR, there are just as many donks playing at that level as there are in the (non-CC) freerolls!! Plus, even though it's only micro stakes to enter a hand, there is always some jerk on there who shoves all-in with his ($5-10ish) stack to push the small stacks off the pot.
I hate rebuy's... it seems that if you bust out then a simple way to pay back into the game exists. Only those with a decent BR to start with can afford the numerous rebuy's, as well as the tourney fee.
For me, Freezeout Tourney's are where it's at... lot's of poker for a small buy-in. I don't have to worry about losing a great deal of my
money each hand, which is psychologically a big asset. I know that tourney's produce more variance and it's harder to win at them, but since I got into poker by watching Late Night and WSOP
shows, where else can I get practice for the WSOP?
