Cash game all cons. You won't learn much unless you watch streams that show peoples mind set. Don't ever play cash against strong players.

Biggest pit fall is paying dearly for mistakes you make. Weaker players might not even notice, were as a stronger player can get you off a hand or trap you.

re: Poker & Cons/Pros Playing Against A Good Player!
Pros: you will play advanced poker and overall it will improve your poker thinking.
Cons: you will be punished for your mistakes, that thing that you have played a hand bad and still won it, most likely won't happen. Any weakness showed will be immediately attacked.

I like to review Super High Roller tournaments. I think you should look at them. They involve a lot of rich people, and very often their custom game outperform their opponents who play using math and common sense. Originality of the game lies in the fact that they play using only your intuition. A poker plays an important role and success, even against professionals.
