This is a discussion on What kind of poker do you like best? And why? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; What kind of poker do you like best? And why? And what exactly do you like to play spin & go, MTT, cashew games?
I have always been a fan of games that allow for shorter sessions but still pack excitement.
45-180 man SNGs are a format that hits both of these points nicely. You get the excitement of playing for 10-20x your entry fee and also the game only takes 2 hours.
I have been playing a lot of these lately on ACR, and I also find they are great practice for MTTs. It's nice to get to play deep stacked, shorthanded, bubbles, headsup and to get to practice all the key tournament poker concepts!
When I was playing full time for my income though, 6-max cash games were the best option hands down.
Shorthanded play allows you to get in more hands with weaker players if you are game selecting well, and it allows for much more play the full ring games.
I started out with 10 handed games, and they were a great place to learn solid play, but when it came to really maximizing both my hourly rate and enjoyment, nothing compared to shorthanded cash games.
And now with the advent of zoom/blitz/rush games... the action's even faster!
No limit Texas hold 'em. Mostly because the no limit aspect allows you to apply maximum pressure whenever you want. Overall, I think cash games, mainly because you can start and stop whenever you want.
Hello, I like to play sits and go, for the time they seem good to me, I also like tournaments but, the bad thing is, you need a lot of time to play it, plus you can spend a couple of hours, and get eliminated nearby of awards.
I like to play MTT more than cash games. When I can win a tournament and defeat a lot of opponents, my feeling is over the moon. Besides, in MTT, you have to adjust your strategy with your stack and each period of the tour, so I feel MTT looks more strategic.
I play hold'em from the start of poker. And I like to play more unlimited so it’s faster and easier. Limit slow and having an excellent card you get a minuscule in the bank and can not drive fish away from the table.
