I have an opinion about both, but I'm interested in hearing from others as it applies to Online only..

Do you prefer to play Tournaments or Cash games online? And why?

Tournament play is awesome if your playing on a regular basis and can enter the same tourney everyday. I found cash games can be hard to filter through but once you can find some good tables it goes ok.

My schedule includes both. I have a list of tourneys i play and while they are running I search the cash game lobby for the best on the day. Once I find a couple cash games and have 2-3 ring games going, I might even bring up a couple of zoom tables too.

I play tourneys because I have plenty of time - you have to allow 3 hrs plus to make any decent money

"it depends"
generally speaking you're going to find weaker players on the tourney tables

I prefer single table SNG tourneys when I have time. I usually play cash because then I can leave whenever I want.

One day I feel like it's tournaments, and then a week later I'm in love with cash games again. So I finally decided why not both, which is what I do, but never at the same time. I may play cash early in the day and MTT's later, or I may play cash one day and MTT's the next. Today, for example, is strictly an MTT day. No cash. I love them both so I will continue to play them both.

I prefer cash games being an online player I can join or leave a table at my convenience
tournaments with decent returns for time spent can take too long

I prefer online poker! It is easy to explain - I do not know how to hide their emotions! My reaction is easy to lament, for example, when the river I get a flash, all the fold! All understand the power of my hand! Internet rocker suits me!

both. You need to be very patient in ring games tho so you don't get whamboozled.

I like tournaments, but with my bankroll I can play only tournaments with micro buy-in! Why I love to play tournaments? Because they are training assiduity-without this you cannot get in big prises! One only brings discomfort unlike cache-you can not finish the game at any time((( Not once I had situations when I must to go somewhere in the middle of tournament(

I prefer tournaments because one can loose much money in short time in cash game, so I did. Yes, one can also win much money in short time, but this bad beats sometimes are sick and all the money is lost.

I play mostly only tournaments,because I don't like cash games.Too many lose there and playing push-fold with a short stack of habit.

tournaments are more fun cash games are more consistently profitable for good players.

I like playing deep stack tournaments with 15 minute (or more) blind levels because it allows you to play like a cash game.

Turbo tournaments are trash IMO. That's not real poker. It's like putting money in a slot machine.

Nowadays I prefer all of them :) but occasionally , I mean the 1$ goldfish or 1$sng 40 players on 888poker with step ticket or 0.10$ sng . I play them only because I get easily the tickets .Also freerolls for BR :) . Sometimes I play 2nl zoom for easy VPP/FPP/rake or for the challenges , and small/very small profit if I play carefully :)
