But I don't wanna lose what I've learned in cash games. So I wanna focus on both. Do you play both and how do you allocate time to both?
Honestly you'd be far better off to put your entire focus on one or the other especially as a 'newer player'.
ie. if you're playing 45man Sng, (imo) you want to be playing these to the point where you're making decisions in your sleep. Seriously. (same for 27man, 180's, etc.).
Take a day or two off from them, go play something else.. 2nl, 5nl or whatever but if you want to excel at one format I believe you need to make it your sole focus.
