Multitable tournament vs cash games games

If you want to get into poker online, this is probably a question you will ask yourself; do you want to focus on tournaments or cash games games? The multitable tournaments 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, the games start and end when you want, but the profits are more gradual. It's up to you to see what you like!
