What do you play more? Cash or mtt? What do you like to play the most?
I play MTTs pretty much exclusively, with maybe a bit of limit Hold 'em at the casino after being knocked out of tournament early. The reason for this is because I chose poker tournaments a little over two years ago to satisfy my desire to do something competitive again.

I prefer mtt because I don't like the pressure of potentially losing big money on a single hand.

MTT and SNG. Cash is too robotic.

I have been playing a lot of tournaments lately and it is not bad. I started out as a cash player. I have played cash in 3 different types of poker. I am about to try online, but live was always fun for me. I was selective where I played and these were slightly different depending on the area. Live cash with the right people is amazing. Not sure about the online.

I do not play cash games. I like tournaments, especially our freerolls. I usually lost in cash games and so I just stopped playing them.

I play MTTs almost exclusively. I prefer MTTs because they give a clear end goal to your poker session, and the changing dynamics throughout the tournament make it more interesting. Whereas I feel cash games are just the same thing hand after hand after hand

Hi!!
I like cash games, even though I have broken my small bankroll a few times.
And this time I'm thinking about taking poker more seriously and I'm going to stop playing cash games once and for all and dedicate myself to sng and mtt.

Tournaments. I don't care much for the playstyle of cash games.

I play both of them, but I like more the mtts. because they are more comfortable to play and the management of the bankrol is easier.

I like cash games as there is less push/fold decision making and I can leave whenever I want. As a hobbyist that is preferable.

Most of all, I like freerolls. :)
I do not play cash games because they only bring me losses and frustration. Without hesitation, in general, I prefer tournaments.

I lean towards both, but if it is to choose one I would say that mtts are more fun, more entertaining.

MTT for me. Much easier for bankroll management when you risk only your buyin.
