Other than boredom, for what reason tournaments better than cash games?
As many on this forum know, I am a major advocate on cash games being the better option for profiting from poker because the variance is always equally brutal whereas in tournaments variance punishes much more brutally in the ending than the beginning making it very unfair of your good hands game earlier on in the tournament rather than later.
Anyway, I am now doing the reverse of my Modus Operandi; instead of a rant-post supporting cash games, I'm offering people to attack cash games and defend tournaments as their chosen style of poker and I will decimate the arguments one by one to truly prove to you how much worse tournaments are for your overall profit from poker no matter how smart you are at them.

It is objectively better to play cash games (not subjectively)
I do not like cache games because of a huge number of wild players who are pushed from late position with any sort of musso, and you kind of have to win when you open up but you move the river and you lose money ... than it looks like freerolls))) but there is no freeroll Losses ...

It totally depends on your win rate. I will say with even a low percentile win rate, tourneys can offer long term results due to leverage. Cash games are simpler and harder to turn positive in due to their simple abc nature. Also, tourneys are less likely to lose a ton of money due to the long term nature and low buy ins.

I have been playing poker at the $40 buy in 1/2NL and hate how many maniac players there are. I mean I 3 bet preflop with AK even push $11 dollars in and get 4 callers. Nobody had hands they should of called that with and one guy in particular catches a boat! I prefer tournaments because those players don't last long in tournament play. It's seems players you know you could beat you have to basically just slot machine it because they're always pushing all in or high raises giving your hands you play less value and have to fold in hopes you'll get a good pocket pair. Again it's either all in or nothing which makes for boring and frustrating poker.
