      SSS ?
      BSS ?
      SnG ?
      MTT ?

      I think for short time , SSS should be best (boring , but best)
      BUT... in the last 3 weeks I've been only losing in SSS (with rakeback im break even) and by playing ~ 12 SnG a day (not a lot... i know) I've managed to increase my bankroll a bit (which I failed using SSS).

      So , I want to increase my bankroll , I manage to have 2 hours of play time a day (1-2 hours dedicated to read the forum , post hands , watch videos) and I want to become profitable player (and with time increase my tables per session)

      your thoughts ?!

      That was obviously a joke. MTTs take way more than 2 hours to play out. Personally, I'd go for cash games as you can quit whenever you want, which you just can't do in a SnG. If you think SSS is boring, you can try BSS, it's more difficult to master but more dynamic and interesting. But that's a matter of preference.

      I usually play 2 hours a day, BSS NL FR or 8-handed

      Not because of lack of time, but because I try to play rested and without distractions. Also because I get tired easily at ipoker.

      play 10SnG's a day 5-tabling. It takes around 2-2 and 1/2 hours.

      I currently play 2 (or 3) x 4
      I try turbo , But its not easy on the micro limits.
      the rake too high , profit too low and many donks who suck out on you...

      I like the normal ones. If you have an edge, you want as much time as possible to take advantage of it, don't you?

      true , but the regular takes more then hour to play while turbo i finish in 35-40 minutes.

      beside , the edge you have is the ICM phase , not folding till you have a monster hand :f_p:
