Hi all! I would like to know what set-up you have for multi-tabling. I run a Dell laptop with 14" screen hooked up to a Philips 24" monitor. With this setup I usually have six tables on the big screen and 0-3 tables on the laptop next to it. I bought the 24" earlier this year and it was a big improvement over mutlitabling up to 5 tables on the laptop (plus it was cheap $200), but now I wish I could go up to 12 tables on my big monitor without having the cards on the tables look like ants. What do you use and what would you recommend? Thank you for your feedback! Smile

Stack or cascade the tables. It's a little strange at first, but now I would never go back to tile.

Hmmm. I have tried cascading but I'll have to try again, thanks for the suggestion! I just found it difficult to focus on the tables when I tried it previously.

Even better for me is when I stack tables. You'll get used to it, and like I said, I would never go back to tile. Now I play 15-20 tables and before that was impossible.Everything was just to small, and I could barely see the cards.

Oh and by the way, I'm also in Canada. Mowed just recently, live in Brampton ON. Not that it has anything to do with your post, but I so you are from Canada so... Smile

hi mahdrof , i dont multi table no more as this effects my profit margin,
are you a winning player playing like this?

in the long run is it really worth it hows your R.O.I playing multis compared to just 1 table session?

do you also tend to get more bad beats playing more hands?

2 tables is more then enough to handle. How do you play 20 tables, that's sick. I think it's stressy playing 2 tables. Tongue

Never more than 4 tables at a time. Have a 19" TFT, so 4 tables fit onto the screen quite good.

Up until about two months ago I had never practised sound bankroll management, had taken shots at moving up fast only to kill my bankroll or move up fast and come crashing back down. Two months ago I started practising safe bankroll management and multitabling 6-10 tables, and have worked really hard on only playing poker when I feel good, and not just because I want to, as well as analyzing my game and working to play better overall. The result is in the past 50 days I have doubled my overall bankroll and moved up a level on the sites which I play regularly. The advantage I find with multi-tabling is that I can tighten up without getting bored, and thus play stronger hands overall. When I was only playing one or two tables I would get bored after a while, play weaker hands and generally get beaten up. The number of tables I play still allows me to notice individual tendencies of the players at my tables and take advantage of weak players as well as set traps for the big raiser/bluffer. I play mostly cash tables, and although I found some information on calculating ROI for cash players I am not at that point yet. Poker is still fun relaxation for me but like everything else I do, I want to get better at it. Overall I find multi-tabling more fun and profitable vs. single table.

6 SnG tables at same time, no less (boring), no more (need to get more experience to increase, and a bigger screen too).

Depends on what site, bonuses bankroll etc etc.
But I can go from a single table up to 8 without struggling.

How many tables I play at a time varies quite a lot but right now I tend to play two cash tables which overlap on the left side of my screen and watch tv online on the right.

How I play tourneys is a little different. I tend to sign up for the same tourneys every day, the one's I know to have the best format, value etc and sometimes I will end up playing three or four at a time. I usually have to start concentrating then so I turn off the radio or tv. However I often end up playing looser on the tourney I care the least about so multi-tabling is probably not so profitable for me as it should be.

If i play one or two tables without doing anything else I tend to get bored especially on tables I find particularly slow. I hate people who take ages to make easy calls or spend ages checking down a flop no one has hit. I don't mind the leisurely pace in live games but online I want speed, except when I'm still in a tourney and making dinner at the same time. In this case my turn usually comes round too quickly.

So I guess you can't win with me. I'm either playing too many hands at once or not enough. Big Smile

Hi to all!
If I play more than 2 tables usually lose I envy you who do not. I need more practice ithink, will do just on playmoney tables, I like to be profitable on 4 tables minimum.

Big Smile

I can't say playing 2-4 is multitabling IMO... even u can say that cause of words...
When i was playing Stars i played 24 tables on stack... because their soft is great for multitable...
I tried on other soft to do smth like that but was to hard...
On other tables i play usually 4-8 tables.
Stars = stack , 4-8 tables... tile because i want to know what's going on the tables.

Two lcd 21'' for handle up to 10 tables at the same time. You have to synchronize them very well because if you reach the heads-up at the same time, you are dead ... i tell you for sure Blink

I play 6 or 7 cascaded on full tilt poker. I find it helps me play better cards and if I'm losing on a couple I'm usually winning elsewhere. Unless I'm playing rush poker. Then I play just 1.
