This is a discussion on Tournaments, Cash games or Sit'n'Go? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Which games of Texas Hold'em do you guys prefer and earn most money of?Or just enjoy as a recreational player?
I'm curious to what games most
I prefer to play nolimit holdem with three thousand starting stack and ten minute blinds. I doesn't really care for all the reentry and rebuy games so a freeze out game is my choice. I think it makes you play better knowing you cant buy back in. I`m also not a big fan of long late registering. I think once your starting stack is less then ten big blinds ,that should be last level you should be able to register. I have been running good in plo8, cashing in a lot of tourneys I have been in. Plo8 is a whole another game compared to holdem. Best of luck in life and on the felts to everybody.
I earn the most money playing cash games, but I like playing tournaments more. For less money, i can play longer, not to mention that, imo, there is less gambling in tournaments as oppose to cash games where there are a lot of family pots, lots of limping and unreasonable 3-bets. Don't really like S&Gs since they usually bring you low amounts of money despite a lot of time you need to invest to get there.
If I need to invest a lot of time, better to do it in a tournament for more money
Live cash games. I'm only recently playing online and I find it a completely different experience. There are no nuances to guide you. There isn't any subliminal queues that one can either give off or pick up on to assist with the decision making process.
I've become spoiled with having access to live cash games in NY, but it keeps me out of the house a lot and my wife bitches, so I've attempted to switch to online play.
I play in tournaments and cash games, when I wait for a tournament long time, then I play a cash game, tournaments are also a good way to raise money, but you need to wait a long time and you can not win and spend a lot of time in the tournament, I get to play and win more money in the cash game - but I like to play in a tournament with a knockout you can immediately get money for knocking out a player!
Every format has its own ups and downs and some advice that I keep seeing again and again is to pick whichever you are strongest @ and make it your specialty. I really like cash games but I am starting a STT sit and go Challenge tomorrow. MTTs are just too high variance for me right now. I do want to make the transition but I will start at STTs until I have built some cash up to pay my way into the larger field MTTs
I prefer to play tournaments, but I finance my entry fees through cash games. PL omaha is my main cash game. I feel that tournament entry fees are a luxury because of the high varience. So I start the day playing cash games with the goal to win enough cash to spend on tournament entry fees.
I like to play standard MTT, with normal blind structure on time and without rebuys ,that is, if there is enough time .. such a MTT at the present time more like a real poker (the Hyper turbo.. the turbo alone billing and poet you need more luck . )but this is my opinion...
I find out that I play so comfortable at Sit & Go's , it's not tough and doesn't take too much time like other tournaments ... At cash game I need a lot to learn , I can't beat the game yet , and I have a huge downswing at cash haha
i enjoy playing mtt tournament , mostly because i get the chance to win alot of money, and find it alot funner..the feeling of growing a stack to a million chips, and second would be cash games, but i get bored easily , and tend to play bad lol, so i stay away from the cash game tables, anyway.... have nice day everyone, and goodluck at the tables
I prefer cash games , but every now and then I play some Sit'n'Go just for a change ,especially after a downswing in the cash games. Lately I've been playing some Spin & Go but just for fun. To me they're entertaining from time to time, and the idea of a maxim score for just a couple of minutes it's also appealing .
I prefer MTTs and SNGs and this comes mainly from mine competitive background. I used to play football/soccer and chess competitively and from there I get the adrenaline to always strive for the first place. It's similar with poker when we are reaching the final table, when players start busting, the feeling is can't be compared to cash games ( at least for me).
I most like playing SnG tournaments like 45/90 or more players. Tournaments not playing much because they last more hours and sometimes I lose patience if they last 4-5 hours, and cash game I play rarely because in one hand I can lose everything I earned by playing in 1 hour (for example, on preflop I have KK or AA and the opponent calls all-in , I call him and he show 99 and hit set on the flop).
I prefer to play MTT and SnG. In cash game often I can not control myself and lose more money, but in MTTs I know how much I can lose and how much - win. For me cash is so boring and monotone, but in MTT and SnG you play depending on a stack, position, stage of tournament, so I play only MTT and SnG.
