This may be a stupid question but I was just wondering wether poker players tend to stick to either stt, mtt, ring games or if most mix it up.

Just curious because the more I read from profitable players the more I get the impression they tend to stick to one game type that their better at.

So is it generally better to play and get good at all types or just stick to one type that you feel suits you better?

IMO I have found that once having found the type of game i enjoy and can be profitable at i tend to stick to it, however as always, i see a video in the training section and think umm, will give that a try, and im of all over the place again, and usually not playing so good.

Hi Guyguyson!

There definitely will be certain styles of games that fit given playing styles. I try to play a little bit of different things, but I want to concentrate the majority of play into the types of games that I can consistantly do well at.

For me, the bottom line IS the bottom line. I'll take some chances or try different games, but I will not jeopardize my bankroll in doing so. Bankroll management plays a large part into the games that I play and while I may take a chance at a different game or style of game every so often, it's only going to be with profits from another game, as I will not take a chance at losing my bankroll by playing recklessly.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
