as someone who plays both - i play cash games live and tournaments online and live, its worth revisiting the differences and nuances of both variants, the following articles, video and threads will hopefully be of benefit to any new members who have joined too.
In essence, can games are flexible with repeated buy ins whereas tournaments are generally fixed, the betting however in both variants can be huge in variance dependent on the stakes, if it is pot limit or no limit and many more other differences as described above.
Cash games are essentially one table online with no fields as such to navigate and this is repeated in the live format.
The simple truth is that cash games are harder to beat than tournaments. ... Cash games can't compete. Secondly, from a structural point of view, in cash games we use the later streets (turn and river) a lot more often than tournament players do because the average stacks are often much deeper.
Good luck if you play both variants and let us know how you get on!
