      Iam having a real hard choosing which games I rather play.
      mainly Iam quite good with 9 man SNG which are nice but I have real big down swings.
      FR cash games seem also nice with bss they are profitable.
      there are also 5050 and 45 90 man sngs
      and iam just having a super hard time choosing.
      can anyone give me tips on how to choose what are the conciderations.
      (iam not asking to tell me what to play iam asking how should i choose)

      Which give you the best hourly rate?

      The best way to decide what to play is answer these questions:

      ~Which type of game do I profit most?

      ~What type of game does my bankroll allow me to play? (some stakes don't allow anything other than fullring tables)

      ~Am I comfortable learning/playing a new game type?

      ~What is my mood? (Do I want a relaxing game or fast-paced game?)

      ~Am I more concerned with hourly rate or total ROI?

      Answer these questions before you decide and you should have a good idea what games you should even be considering. I hope this helps you find the game you like.

      hi guys,

      just moving the discussion to beginner's forum where it belongs :)

      i would go for the game you enjoy most learning/studying about.

      Hi guys,

      Such a personal choice here imo.

      If there's a game type/variant that you have the most passion for or indeed to most time for, then I would stick to this.

      Make sure you spend plenty of time though on your game and I don't just mean at the tables either. Plenty of solid hard work analyzing hands and studying our materials are the keys to the kingdom and to the $$$

      Best of luck with whatever you choose.

      Kind regards,
      Gary
