In this article I will highlight the pros and cons with multi-table playing in online casinos.
If you are new to poker you might perhaps be wondering, what is multi-table playing?
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 fact, experienced players will make more money by playing more tables.
The multi-table game means more action, but also less time for decision making.
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 might miss out on 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.
When you feel that the multi-table game affect your results it is time to take a break or simply stop. Therefore is important to closely monitor your results.
Conclusion: Multi-tabling does not fit 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. The bottom line is if you are able to handle the heat, 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.
