Not worth the risk, imo
^play sit an go tourneys, double up tourneys, and heads up tourneys.
play sit and go tourneys. the two table tourneys at the most. the profit margin for cheaters is too small (where the winner typically only gets around 3x, 2nd place 1.5x, and 3rd place 0.8 payouts).
also try out the double up tourneys - where its 10 players and all you have to do is finish in the top five and the tourney immediately ends and you double up your buy in. the double up tourneys are quick and really develop patience plus bluffing techniques.
also always play the turbo speed versions of those tourneys. its just too much work for too little profit margin (if working in teams).
those type of tourneys are just too hard to make a profit off cheating. sure the the last rounds really emphasize luck, but at least proper play is still rewarded where if you play well you'll be right there in the money towards the end.
plus playing turbo heads up really sharpens your feel playing with pure odds.
its the slow full timed cash games that you can be blatantly cheated on.
playing the turbo tourneys properly also will help your live game (be it cash games or tourneys) immensely. also remember there is cheating in live games too. its up to the dealer to figure it out (if they're not in on it) and since the house makes money of the cut of the pot... most of the time the house doesn't give a shit if there's cheating because it profits either way.
