Definition of cash-game

There are many forms of poker. Today there are more than yesterday and less than tomorrow (the forms of poker are constantly changing). Among all these variants, one of the most popular is the cash game form. The cash game is unique in that you play with your own money. The "chips" that you find in tournaments are no longer chips, but dollars or euros. Generally, in cash games, you will bring to the table 100 times the big blind. At a 1/2 euro table, you will bring a total stack of 200 euros.

Other features of the cash game

If we compare the cash game to tournaments, there are some advantages and some disadvantages. As an advantage, there is a way to play with a good stack, always at least 100 big blinds. For an experienced player, playing with at least 100 big blinds will increase his or her advantage over other players. In addition, the cash game starts and stops whenever you want. You can have a 10 minute session or a 10 hour session. As for the disadvantages, bankroll management is a bit more difficult since unlike a tournament that has a fixed price, you don't know how much you can lose in a night. And in cash games, you can't win big like in a tournament.
