What's the difference between a cash game and a tournament?
In a cash game a player may freely buy inor cash out between hands however it is normally prohibited for a player toremove of his chips from the table. For example if a player buys in for $100,then wins $100 the player may not remove the original $100 buy-in whileremaining seated. He would have to forfeit his seat, possibly wait to rejointhe game, and buy in again for $100.In tournament however the method is alittle different. One difference between tournaments and cash games is that theblind/ante structure of tournaments increases periodically over the course ofthe tournament, whereas the blind/ante structure of cash games remainsconstant. Another difference between the tournaments and cash games is that atournament sticks with a predetermined style of poker, and cash game players,depending on the house rules may have the option of playing other types of cardgames. I find the cash games much more suitablefor me to take advantage of my skills as a poker player while on tournamentthere are more strict rules and restrains that can interfere with your game.
