This is a discussion on The Most profitable Poker Game for You is? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Cash/SnG/MTT
What do you think (or sure) is the most profitable format in average for you in Holdem?
For me SnG Slow 1-5 tables. ROI up to
The most profitable for is defininetly freerolls,and its because i do not have any pressure of losing anything,and when im enjoying poker,thats when i play at my best.I find poker as just a fun way of relaxing,and as soon as i play very serious i start to lose .
It all depends on where I am playing, On-line I have my best result's in 9 player Knockout games, where you get a bounty for taking players out of the game, plus the top 3 get paid out of the remaining prize pool.
The buy-ins and prize money is small in comparison to MTT games but when I set my mind to it, I usually do well, but like any game of chance I have had a few days where I could not make any head-way and lose every game, but then there have been days where I made the money in every game I played.
My best result so far is Played 9 games, won 7 and placed in the other 2, I also have taken as many as 7 bounties in a single game, so profitable yes! Versus time? Perhaps not so much.
In a Live Casino or Pub game I prefer Cash Tables, I have done well in some Tournaments and cashed in a few but the Cash Tables is where I can usually make the most money, because I can spend several hours playing in the Tournament, and make a bit of money surviving the bubble, but can make 10, 20, or even 30 times more money playing against other players who have been eliminated from the Tournament.
Again this depend's on Variance and I have walked away from cash tables losing, but only to a point where I was willing to lose my original buy-in, nothing more, I always have enough left for a meal, a few drink's and a Taxi home.
I like to play double and triple up SNG 1 table. I find these to be the easiest to win. But I've been wanting to play tournaments more considering the profit to stake percentage but just havnt committed a decent try. GL
