Which game mode is the most profitable for you where you feel that the game mode is the best and most profitable in terms of time - bet, among these game modes which are the most profitable!

normal tournaments
K.O tournaments
normal tables
zoom tables
Spin&go
sit&go
battle royale
Omaha tables and tournaments!
So far, very bad luck in serious K.O. tournaments. Those were serious tournaments on poker stars with big guarantees (most recently it was the Carnival Mystery Bounty with a $1,250,000 cash guarantee). I was eliminated on the 3rd hand with pocket "KK" against "AQ" (I forced my opponent to go all-in on pre-flop). I would get 50$ for the player I knocked out. So far, I'm doing better at Replay Poker in normal tournaments of CardsChat. That's why I choose the "normal tournaments" option. :unsure:

To me is MTT NLHoldem with no bounty's, no rebuy or addon. At bounty tournaments I enter the money a lot with no bounty or little ones, so I make small cash.

Hi :)
Normal tournaments. Not hyper, not turbo, but normal tournaments, the kind where the blinds increase every 10 or 12 or 15 minutes. Perhaps it is better to call them slow. I'm pretty slow myself and I like tournaments pretty slow too :)

I'm good at HyperHU and Spin&Go.
These are the most profitable games for me.

Regular tournament. It seems to be the best format for my game. KO also.

I have more fun playing omaha cash game tables, but I have better results playing normal tournaments.

For me, sit in go is more profitable because it has less variance and I also like MTT k.o there are a lot of crazy players who will go all in with anything

Cash games and tournaments represent the primary profitable modes, with each catering to different player strengths. Cash games offer a consistent and controlled environment where skilled players can exploit their edge with less variance over time. This mode allows for flexible sessions and immediate profit realization. Tournaments, particularly large field online MTTs, offer the potential for significant returns on a small investment but come with higher variance due to the infrequency of deep runs and big cashes. For players adept at navigating large fields and adjusting to varying stack depths, tournaments can be exceptionally profitable. Sit & Go’s (SNGs), especially turbo formats, provide a middle ground with more predictable duration and variance than MTTs but require a strong understanding of ICM and endgame strategy. Ultimately, the most profitable mode is where a player’s skills are maximized and their weaknesses minimized, combined with disciplined bankroll management.

Bounty/KO and satellite tournaments are my favorites because I have the most success there.

However, now I’ve probably realized that NL is most suitable for me.If you are at the beginning of your journey, then Pot-limit Omaha is probably the most profitable type of poker because there are many more fish than in all other types of poker.

Tournaments, small deposits enabling high winnings, cash games are probably the fastest form but also the most exposed to the risk of loss.

My favorite are freerolls :)
But I also like regular normal tournaments. I mainly play on pokerstars, 888 and GGpoker. But without freerolls, I'm unlikely to have good results, freerolls help a lot to have positive bankroll dynamics.

Most of all, I like to play in regular tournaments with late registration for no more than an hour, without reboots and addons, even taking into account the fact that there will be a smaller prize pool.

I prefer online MTT, 9 players, regular speed, no fancy rebuy or addon stuff :) I am currently highly profitable, as I only play freerolls :D

Most of all I like to play regular NL Hold'em tournaments - there are the least amount of dispersion forced actions (knockouts, etc.) - you just play according to the card)

I only play NL Hold'em. I prefer regular MTT tournaments. My favorite format is classic no-knockout tournaments with 9-player tables.
