I see many players saying that to build a bankroll when you start playing poker you have to play more SGN, do you agree with that?
in which mode and buy-in were you most successful when you started playing poker? (Cash Game? Sit and Go or MTTs?)

you have to find the type of game in which you are most comfortable, you have to try it, but I do not recommend a beginner player to play REBUY tournaments or ZOOM

Perhaps - yes, I will agree with this statement. SnG is MTT in miniature. If you can play the SnG, you can successfully play in tournaments.

I started playing in the SNG. Good chance to win with the right approach.

Did you start playing in this buy-in? I found it a bit expensive for a game start

When I started playing, I played in Sit and Go at 0.10 cents 360 people and 0.25 cents 45 people, now I play more in MTT for $ 1 and 2 and it's great, but now you can play freerolls to learn and try to raise bankroll or play Sit and Go,
This is a good way to try to raise bankroll and learn well!

yes, playing the freerolls to try to rebuild a bankroll, but this is difficult because there are few good freerolls in pokerstar. I'm trying to get into freerolls here from Cardschat, they look like they're not very good.

If you just startered to play poker, it,s better to play any game on low limits. The key moment here is to understand what do you like most of all in poker. Because some people like sng tournaments, others prefer cash games. You must choose what is best for you and play low limits and freerolls.

if you play only for the sake of money, you need to try yourself everywhere, and if for fun, then play what you like.

Frankly to be ... when I started playing poker (10 years ago) was a bit different from what it is now. They were simple tournaments. So yes, I played a lot of cash and site & go.

I particularly still have not been able to succeed in poker, I do not invest my money, plus all the money that I get lose playing Cashgame, I love cashgame, this modality baffles me, just knowing that that stack of chips I have is real money to give me greatest strength in the game.

I started playing poker in 2014. I still did not succeed in poker. I do not agree, I think you have to play what you like to play and not what others say. I was more successful in the cash game.

I totally agree with others who think the best way to start and build your bankroll is to play SnG with small fields of players. Chances to lost everything are much more lower than in MTT with 1000+ players because you will get in prizes more often. I started from 45 max SnG and I think these tourneys very usefull to get some practice of playing final tables and HU.

I have been playing poker for about 8 years. Mostly, I like MTT tournaments. Honestly, I got the most profit from freerolls. Good luck.

I started playing poker on the cache and from $ 50 on the limits of 2-5 I overtook 200 dollars. Then this bankroll merged into stupidity. Then I was dragged into MTT, now I create anew bankroll and plan to go higher then to tournaments

I started about ten years ago and kept notebooks recording my play and observations for four years. It makes for interesting reading now. Above all, you must enjoy a challenge and then you must meet and exceed all challenges. It's like school, you will pay your tuition at the tables, you will do your homework and learn from the best around you..not only play but managing your assets...including your dignity.
