      There's no real answer. Both have advantages and disadvantages, both have different strategies, both have their own risks and potential profits.

      What will generate most profit will be the type of game you like to play the most in the end.

      Thanks for your opinion

      I personally prefer playing cash games although i have seen people generate huge BR's using SnG in a short period provided you use the right strategy, i just don't feel comfortable with the late phase of a SnG where you push/fold

      In my opinion, sng's represent slightly higher risk/reward due to nature of their structure and you are always staking a whole stack (BI) each time. With cash games, you can withdraw at any time without risking a stack if you don't get any decent cards/opportunities etc.
      I guess this theory is supported in terms of the difference in BRM requirements for each, but only a guess, no real idea. Would be equally interested in others views.

      Again another nice view and outlook

      It would be interesting to hear of some accounts from cash games and SnG players success's with risk vs reward.

      I dont think we can say what is more profitable..

      I have this "theory":

      Its like in economy, if one sector would become more profitable and it would be obvious, then more producters would come into the sector, creating more competition and the sector would become less profitable... =)

      So my guess is, something similar works here in poker. If we would know that Sngs are more profitable, we would all try to work on our sng game and make our money there. But then there would be too many sharks playing sngs and cash games would become more profitable :D
      I hope you get my point, even though its maybe bullshit

      MTT's. Big ones. If you have the nerves to play them. My best result is about 5700% ROI on a freezeout. And you cannot expect to do that no matter what else you play. But i play cash games :D

      IMO: cash games

      Once you reach ~100$ + sng's you're pretty much playing for the rakeback, while there are still nice winrates possible for the high stake cashgames.

      All sng's below ~100$ I don't think it makes alot of difference.
