I would like to highlight the pros and cons with multi-table playing for online poker players.
New poker players are perhaps wondering, what multi-table playing is about?
It means you play more than 1 table at the same time.
Perhaps you are wondering, why play more tables if you normally just play one table?
The reason is simply to make more money.
If you only play one table, you are missing out on some major profit opportunities.
It's a fact, experienced players will make more money by playing more tables.
Multi-table playing means lots of action, but also less time to make decision.
The multi-table game might not be for everyone.
What could be the downside of multi-tabling?
More tables means less focus on each table.
You could miss small details from the tables.
Playing to many tables could lead you to play less well on each table.
Another problem is that the game can become quite mechanical, some people dislike that and therefore don’t like it, it’s just a matter of taste if you’re asking me.
If the game playing start to affect your results and you start losing then you got to stop, or take a break. It's very important to closely monitor your results.
What it all comes down to is that multi-tabling is not for everyone.
If you consider giving it a try, start out carefully with 2 tables if this works out ad one more table at the time. Some players are comfortable by playing 4, 8 or perhaps 12 tables.
If you consider playing 8 tables or more please note this is only for a limited number of players, due to the challange it brings along. The more tables you play the quicker you have to analyze the situation and make a fast decision in short time frame. It’s also important that you are able to control your emotions; if you lose out a few games it can affect your emotions in a bad way. There is no question about it, poker multi-tabling is the best way to maximize profits. No matter if it’s 1 or 10 tables you prefer playing I wish you luck.
