This is a discussion on Do you prefer long, multiplayer tournaments? Or site & go that last less. within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; My favorites are the site & go. I think it's easier to build a banckroll.
I mostly play sng's because of the smaller field and the fact it takes less time.
On the other hand I always want to play the larger tournaments to win big obviously but it can consume a lot of time without getting in the money, there is more to chance because the middle / late stage takes a lot longer and you will be forced to shove in multiple times to go deep
Good question, SNG I play most of the time when I don't have much time during the week. In the weekend I play MTT, but sometimes I'm getting bored, so playing a few SNG next to it is fine. At the end, it is patience which gives me the problems.
SNGs, imo, are a good way for solid players to play profitably and consistently. If you’re talking about building a bankroll, that is where you ought to be. If you’re instead talking about having a dedicated bankroll, what to do with it, there is more potential for big wins in MTT, but large swings when you’re not cashing, whereas SNG are still likely profitable. Long MTT can be good for you if you tend to be able to keep focused for a long time and out-endure as well as outplay your opponents.
I prefer to play mostly SNG because it doesn't take as long and there is less variance. MTTs can be fun if they don't last longer than a few hours. The feeling you get when you win a MTT can't be matched by SNG.
re: Poker & Do you prefer long, multiplayer tournaments? Or site & go that last less.
I prefer playing MTTs because of the amount of skill, perseverance, and luck it takes to get to the top prize. The feeling of turning a small investment into a large prize is quite awesome. But... SNGs are great as you can consistently produce some income and not suffer from crazy variance compared to MTTs.
Actually, I like to play them both. I also often play SNGs beside a tourney.
I played very long time more SNG than MTT also to build up my bankroll.
Meanwhile I increased my amount of MTTs also because of the CC freerolls.
But yeah, with the MTT you have the chance to cash bigger prizes. They can give your bankroll a real boost, what is also nice. Of course the SNG have a big advantage about the MTTs when you have not so much time. Especially during the week I like to play them and at the weekends more the MTTs.

To build a bankroll it is better ot sit and go, i personally recommend sits and go of 6 players.In the tournaments there is a lot of variance and you must have more bank to play.
That's why it is better to play sits and go and when you have a good bank, you can play tournaments.
It really depends what kind of player you are and what do u expect from the tournaments. I'm playing like 2SnG everyday + 4 MTT tables. Playing 6 tournaments per day, playing for 8-9hours and found it reall y profitable. Try it than comment me back
Best of luck.
I can play both , when I have a lot of time on holidays for example or week end , I play big tournaments since the prizes are very interesting and also the part of fun to play with a big field ... and also I play SnG when I have less time because the field is smaller and most of the time Turbo structure which makes it really fast .
I play different types of tournaments, mostly at the stars, it all depends on my mood and time. But the most popular type is MTT, it's bad only that due to the work I have difficult time allocating to them, but I try very hard. Adrenaline and good wins is what attracts me to them)
