In this article I will highlight the pros and cons with multi-table playing in online casinos.
New poker players are perhaps wondering, what multi-table playing is about?
It means you play more than 1 table at the same time.
I can almost hear all the “one table players” asking why should I play more than one table?
Well, the most obvious reason is to make more money.
If you only play one table, you are missing out on some major profit opportunities.
It’s a known fact that most players with some experience will make more money by playing more tables.
Multi-table playing means lots of action, but also less time to make decision.
The fact is multi-table game is not for everyone.
What could be the downside of multi-tabling?
The more tables you play the less time and focus will be spent on each table.
You could miss small details from the tables.
The downside of 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. Therefore is important to closely monitor your results.
What it all comes down to is that multi-tabling is not for everyone.
If you believe this game is for you, then start out with 2 tables, if it works out fine you can ad more. Some people are comfortable playing 4, 8 and 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. The bottom line is if you are able to handle the heat, multi-tabling is the best way to maximize profits. Good luck with your poker playing no matter if it’s 1 or 10 tables you prefer playing.
