This is a discussion on Which Is More Profitable? Cash or Tournaments? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; what one make you rich?
Tournament big prize but long and long time, why you choose that style?
i think it's different for everyone.According to my personal statistics, the cache is more profitable but after winning a main event in big (if you're lucky of course) tournament you can immediately get a big jackpot
I like cash but I get better winnings in tournaments. It depends a lot on the time you have, in my case at the moment I don't have much time to sit down to play tournaments and I have no other option than to play cash.
You have much enough money, play cash game, if not you better go tour for big prize but often take 3 or more hour.
So question is from the penny, take long time for each tour and get big or play small cash and also get big with flexible schedule
Sit & go tournaments are more profitable than mtts, in this case your question is about cash or tournaments, personally I was inclined towards tournaments in the sit & go mode where only a limit of players participate and that makes the Game variance decrease with a good game schedule and discipline in the medium term it is profitable and you can start with 50 tickets compared to the cash tables you have to have a bank of 100 to 200 tickets the variance is stronger the players They are looser and you have to have a lot of self control to play cash tables, play thousands of hands and see the results at the end of the month in a certain number of hands played.
re: Poker & Which Is More Profitable? Cash or Tournaments?
Good afternoon everyone, in my opinion Mtt is more profitable and much more exciting, imagine an All in on an FT paying 1KK for 1st place, but the cash game is better because when you practice and study the cash game, your profits are constant with little variation, I follow good players through twitch, who spend 3 months losing and suddenly comes the big rit and earn a lot of money, imagine 3 months playing for 10 hours 6 times a week and losing 25k, already in the cash game players I see have constant profits, I prefer to earn 1k a month playing cash than playing Mtt even though I know I will win twice as much, it is very bad to work for months losing. This player who lost 25k at the beginning of 2020 ended the year with more than 280K up, he said it was his best year and I still prefer cash because I can play whenever I want for 1 hour and stop at Mtts if you registered and did not there's no way you will have to play until you lose or win.
MTT's have the softest players and are easiest to beat but have much more variance. SNG's and cash are lesser variance and give you more freedom. But cash tends to have tougher players and is harder to beat.
For me tournaments are the best choice and it turns out to be a good game, but very little money!
For little money (and in some places even free), you can play for a very long time and, if you're lucky, win 100 times more. Agree, this is a solid indicator that is completely unattainable for a cash game.
As practice shows, tournaments have their own "simplicity" - your stack is traditionally very short (20-30-40 BB), and most of the decisions should be made pre-flop. By the way, winning a famous tournament is always not only money, but also glory and honor.
I don't personally like tournaments as they take too much of my time with no flexibility, and the variance is insane. In cash games I can play whenever I want and don't need to worry about as bad downswings.
I do not play open table, because tournament you know your limit, even if it is high, that is not the point. the problem of the open table that the person has to know his limit before putting on the table what he doesn't even have, open table is a door to bankruptcy. in my humble opinion of course
It all depends on the time you have to play. If you have little time it is more profitable to play cash, with a few hours you can have good results. On the other hand, for tournaments you must dedicate more time and it is generally more difficult to have good results
CG is not for me. It is good for rake, or lose my tourney winnings. So tourneys, sometimes multitable SNGs. But it depends on many things, obviously your time for poker gives a limit. If you do not have 10+ hours in a day, just few, then tourneys are out, so only CG and SNG are the options.

Generally cash games are with lower variance than MTTs so if you are good player and want relatively stable constant income from poker cash games should be better for you. If your dream is to win big, life changing amount of money MTTs are the key but you will need more luck compared with cash. Pro players seem to mix both formats.
Personally you can on both but I think tournaments would be better. Cash game are very slow and steady. You can play just one tournament and if its your time you win big. Personally I would not worry about the money and play what most fun to you. If it happens it happens.
If you are someone who can handle the swings and not loose your cool id say cash games it can be annoying folding in cash games but knowing when to is the key to actually taking away a profit in the long run. also remember that your much less likely to face a jam bluff in cash games whereas in tournaments many players will frequently jam ESPECIALLY if they can outchip you and make sure they stay in!
na minha opinião, o dinheiro é muito arriscado, o torneio limita você e ao mesmo tempo permite que você ganhe a quantia desejada, se você estiver disposto a gastar mais entre um buy-in maior, caso contrário você não jogará. dinheiro para mim é o início da falência, na minha opinião, é claro
