I know that value betting cash games earns you money over time, but is that sensible in tournaments?
Because with cash games you play as much as you want and over a period of time you make a profit but in tournaments you are all scrambling to survive. And not all value calls would be wise for that style of play, correct?
Absolutely! Can't "survive" without stealing, winning flips, bluffing AND value betting. It's an essential ingredient of every tournament.
But, there's a difference between making a value "bet" and making a value "call". The former is generally going to be the much more profitable of the two. Value "bet" when you're pretty sure that villain has second best and he will "call" your bet. But beware, he'll try to do the same thing to you, so making a value "call" may be lacking in actual "value" for you.
You should have a mixed combination of both bluffing and value betting, that will be be the most profitable strategy in all types of poker, for winning any poker table you should win pots and when you have a good hand that you can get value from it has no difference that it is a MMT or Cash game, I think it is what pro players call GTO
