Are Poker Cash Games Harder Than Poker Tournaments?

I get this poker question quite often. As in everything in poker it depends on the cash game and the tournament.

A 5/10 No Limit cash game is going to be much tougher than a Nightly poker tournament at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. On the other hand, a WSOP Circuit Main Event is going to be much tougher than a 1/2 No Limit cash game anywhere.

It all depends on the level you’re playing in either arena.

If your goal is to learn the game at a cheap price, then I recommend starting at the 1/2 No Limit game, play tight, study and watch everything and everybody. Simply by sitting there for hours, you will pick up a lot.

After a few sessions, you will feel more comfortable when you play in a poker tournament.
