This is totally opposite of the truth.
Short term variance can kill you and you might not get any results but in long term, if you're a winning player, you will show results in MTT. You need big roll to play MTTs because of big variance. You need to make top 3 to get a big payout. At least a final table.
Cash, 9 man 18 man SNG are the best because of lower variance. Heads up gives the illusion of having a low variance because its just you and one opponent and whoever have the edge should win. In reality when you are playing like 80%+ of the hands, the variance is HUGE. I don't recommend heads up for building BR unless you are experienced at it or can bum hunt.

I Do not think too many would flat call 3x from the SB with Jack-rag, much less call all in for their game life, yet here I was. in a $4.40 game.
There is always fish in poker. Watching some videos of hand histories of winning players, there are still people like this at 3 figure buyins. Fish is attracted to the allure of a big score. Think of it as the bait when you go fishing. They're always gonna be there to pump in money for the winners.
