Someone will say that its all about HUDs. But , I think that most important is to play tight as ass... You want to play only hands that will lead you to easy decisions. Hands like AA AK KK QQ and maybe some suited A which will lead you to nuts. You cant aford to play QJ for example will lead you to tough decisions...

How long have you been playing online? It took me a while to be comfortable multitabling, but I generally play cash. I have a 24 inch monitor hooked up to my laptop, and I tile the tables, lately only six at a time as I am playing higher blinds and more (but thankfully not ALL) of the players are at a half-decent level.

If you really want to work your brain, play 7stud where you need to track the cards that your opponents have folded, and then start multitabling THAT! Big Smile

I don't use the hud programs and that sounds like some pretty boring poker. Not poker at all really if ya think about it.

I only find it difficult when I'm multitabling different variations, because it requires different play styles, and as idiotic as it sounds theres been times when I've made the move I was gunna make on one table, on the wrong table. You only really need to pay attention to who the donks are, and play tight as hell unless you get just you and a donk in a pot when you have position over him.

I didn't try multi-tabling until I had played long enough to make quick decisions. Then I tried adding a table at a time to see how it goes. I usually don't play more than four and set it up so I can see them all at once. Most cards are folded.

Depends how many tables you're talking about.. Personally- up to 6 tables I can play a very relaxed game, take in reads on opponents, make fancy plays etc. Once I push beyond 6 - say around 9-10 - then I'm generally playing fairly tight / ABC poker - ROI definitely suffers when > 6 tables.

Personally - I like to register in about 10-15 MTTs when I play a session (staggered over say 4am start to 10am start) and then after a few hours - I'll just be left with a few that I am running deep in and by the time I'm playing final tables, there's normally only 1 or 2 games I'm still in.

Only bit of advise (other than slowly building to more tables) is to stay calm. When I first started playing >4 tables I was a bit overwhelmed and watching timers tick and alerts flash etc I felt a little rushed and would often act to hastily. Now however - I remain calm and if there's 4 tables flashing it is my turn, I don't freak out, I just take each table one at a time and if necessary I quickly hit the extra time button on each table - just in case.

Well,i think that you should choose the "strategy" that you gonna follow during the tournament!I suggest a tight aggressive style at the early part of the tournament and a more loose agressive at the later part!In the earliest stages of the tournament some players are tilt from previous games,others are not good players but the most trying to build a good stack cause they think that this will ensure them a place to the prize pool positions!ALSO THE BLINDS ARE SO SMALL as a result the most are playing a big range of hands such as A 5 off suited and other not so good!So you have just to wait till a good hand such as AA AKs AQs or something like this!In this position you have to be aggressive in order to keep out of pot players with lower hands in order to avoid having a bad beat!In the later stages of a MTT tour the player as the getting closer to the winning places becoming more tight!Here is the point that you have to be more aggressive and start playing a bigger range of hands in order to "steal" some small pots before the flop(the blinds are bigger so a small pot maybe reach 10-15% of your stack!)
This is a strategy i usually follow....Of course you have to adjust it in your game type and of course in the tournament's situations,players etc.
Last,very important is to learn to use your position!For example you have A Spade 5 Club as starting hand!If you are "under the hand" you fold it!But if you are in button position you can do a 3 times of bb bet in order to press the blinds and steal some chips!Also one advice for sng and mtt tours!When your stack is 10 times the big blinds you have to do all in in the good hand that you have!Only in this way you will have chances to win some money!Sorry for my bad english dude!
HAVE A NICE MTT CARREER!Hehehe...Have a good play! Smile

Hey Gomer! I never play more then one and rarely two games at a time. I've made to many mistakes and don't finish in the $$ enough when multi-table playing. I focus on one game at a time and find my BR to be on the increase more the the decrease in the long run.

There are several players who like the multi-table play, but it's not for me. I guess a lot of it's to do with the fact I play because it's fun and a great pass time for me. Another thing is, I've never played in any real big $$ games. Maybe someday I'll do that, but take it slow, make it last, take it easy, not to fast, but don't let go.

i don't know how about you- but when multitabling i do not try to keep up with who is on the table, and what sort of players they are- i know this is a bad thing, but that's what you sacrifice when multitabling- so what's left is basic abc poker, be tight and aggressive and hope for best Worship

I got used to play 4 tables at a time and nowadays playing less than that becomes... well... boring.
Still that's as high as i can go, tried 5 tables several times and that suddenly is too much to handle.
If you feel ur losing time by playing just one table try starting small and go with 2 for some time. Really, how fast can action be in 2 sng tables? and most times the players are the same so u dont even have much trouble keeping track on how everyone plays.

If you tried and you didn’t managed to win, so don’t try it again, or at least wait a little bit more till you have some more expertise to do it again. I do multi table when I play ring games, but when I enter a tourney, I tend to shut ring rooms downs so that I can entirely focus on what is the most important. When I start playing an MTT, I like to have other rooms opened so that I make sure that I will only play good hands. If I have more than the necessary time to look at the cards, I tend to try to play hands that I shouldn’t, in positions that I shouldn’t. Having other tables, I will not have time to think two times, so I will only do what is right to do. When the tourney gets faster, with lower players and near prizes, at that time I like to look only to the MTT so I can be completely focused.

Hi GomerAssassi

Software like HM help a lot. And experience of years. Some tips:

Not try to multitable tons of tables at the begining. Try first 2-3 tables and add tables when you feel 'confortable' with the number you are playing.

2nd and most important. You can´t play the half of your roll in one session playing SnG and MTTs. You nedd a best bankroll management.

Luck at the tables.

Well, multitabling is not about having fun. Its about earning money. You need to decide what you wont from poker- having fun or cash. Also, you need to have lot of expirience, that will make much of your decisions easy.

Right, multi tabling is about looking profit. Since you want profit why not play baccarat on line. Fast to win and fast to lost Blink Better play one or two table, to train your focus, instinct, table reading and so on. If your skill getting better you will enjoy Smile

Always play so many tables that dont affect your overall performance.
If you see that you cant keep up the pace start decreasing the number of tables, till
you reach the level when you dont get rushed decisions.
4-6 tables is doable from all players, having a right screen size monitor though Smile
