What kind of poker can you play well ?
It also depends on the site where you are going to play, from the cache on all sites, the game of nl Hold'em and Omaha is going well, as well as the usual multi-table nl Hold'em tournaments are also going well on all sites, Omaha tournaments are not popular everywhere.
In general, Hold'em and Omaha are two massive and popular games that most players play, respectively, you can earn money around the clock, and what to play, cash or tournaments depends on each player separately, who knows how to play well.
you have to play on the format where you are the most comfortable and which you master the most. Personally I like to play Sit and Go and tournaments because it is on these two formats that I am the more profitable in the long term.
With a small bankroll, I would prefer to play micro/small limits tournaments, because is more safe than cash games in my opinion and you can win a good amount of money if you finish in the first positions.
For me, playing online I always avoid cash games. MTT make sense in their structure, but the speed of cash games and their stable blinds make difficult for me when Im thinking about re-raise someone preflop
The first and foremost advantage of cash over tournaments is freedom of action. Tournament players don't have the luxury of leaving the game whenever they feel like it. Tired of playing, choose: either step over yourself, coping with fatigue, hunger and boredom, or give your stack to another player - and then your buy-in goes down the drain.

It's a huge mistake.
Poker is not a business.
There are no investments, no value, no profit in gambling, it's a total lie. There are bets and winnings and fools falsely believe that poker is something similar to stock markets. You're wasting time observing rotation of same 52 cards again and again. And this "time spending" is not helping your personal progress, your evolution and your study. All you're getting from poker is just a chance. It's much faster to buy a lottery ticket and check the result, than spend hours again and again trying to win 1st place in that tourney or earn money in cash games in the long run. The single winner is the casino(poker site).
re: Poker & What is profitable for you? MTT or Cash games?
I have been making much more money in MTT’s. I play smaller stakes(under $15 buy in). I am always meeting the same group of people on the sites I play on and HUD and bot use is very prevalent in the ring games. That’s my opinion anyway. Good luck!
The greater the result will be where you have more skill.
In my case, these are tournaments. Cash games are more profitable in terms of running time, but high rake makes it very difficult to play profitably, especially at micro stakes.
Pretty much play SnG and MTT exclusively online. Most profit is very small due to type of buy in and the amount that is played. Playing live is a cash table. Most session see a couple hundred dollar profit.

I think cash games would be the highest value, but MTT's give you some comfortably in knowing that if you tilt, you're not risking an indeterminate amount. You're only on the hook for the buy in price.
