MTT vs cash games game

If you want to get into online poker, this is probably a question you will ask yourself; do you want to focus on tournaments or cash games-player games? The MTT can be spread over several days, even online. If you play big online tournaments, you could participate in Day 1 which will stretch over 10 hours during the day and if you are still in the tournament after 10 hours, you will come back for Day 2. In tournaments, there is more variance, a lower caliber of players and a chance to win big. In games of cash games, there is less variance, games start and end when you want, but profits are more gradual. It's up to you to see what you like!
