Easily, the most lucrative is always the style you play the best
. Kind of like the Wall Street saying, "bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered".
Playing tight aggressive is the easiest of the strategy. You wait for good cards and bet. It is easy to bet with good cards. Playing good cards keeps you from having to make a lot of hard decisions.
Playing loose aggressive is the most difficult strategy to play against and the most difficult to play well. You will have a lot of difficult decisions that takes lots of experience to make correctly.
Most people will fall somewhere in the middle, but you need to have a good, solid, core game in one style prior to moving on to others if you want to be effective. If I start leaking chips, I always fall back to playing tight.
