      Ok i've just started playing for real money thanks to the starting cap, and i seem to be way better at SnG's then ring games.
      i get into the top 2 9/10 times but in cash games i win for the first 10 hands then go on a downswing.

      What do you think i should do? because lots of players say "the money's all in the ring games" and i'm not too good at them.
      any suggestions?

      I you get in top 2 9/10 times I would play a mont and retire afterwards on a nice private island surrounded with hot girls and a small team of scientists figuring out new ways for them to be nice to me ^^

      fo real: doesn't really matter imo :)

      1. Play whatever you're best at, everything can be very profitable if you're good at it :)
      2. If you would like to change playing styles, READ THE ARTICLES, evaluate your play and post your hands in the hands evaluation section :) .
      3. VARIANCE is a big factor. Even if you're playing your A-game, you can hit a downswing, and if you're a donk, you can still hit an upswing.
      4. Even if you're a good player, you won't get ITM 900/1000 games. Well if you will you'll be a millionare. It's probably just luck, you can't judge being a good player on 10 games ;) . Try 1000 and then we're talking :) . And even then, it might not all be as it seems (remember boku's 1,5k games break-even session ;) )

      Primzi : Hlynkinn = 1:0 :D

      Personally, I prefer ring games because I like to play the same strategy all the time, but it's just me...

      There're enough money for private island in both so no need to worry.

      Wow this thread is really full of gold lol!
      Im more of a cash game player tbh. I just think instead of winning 50%, you win 100%!!!! But i also like the dynamics of cash games more and the fact that you play with real money and not chips.

      But SnGs have there advantages as well. I think this community is very "Cash Game biased" tho :D
