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?
Quite simple it means you are playing more than one 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.
So, perhaps you wonder are there any downside to multi-tabling?
More tables means less focus on each table.
You might miss out on small details from the tables.
Playing to many tables could lead you to play less well on each table.
Some players feel that multi-tabling becomes a mechanical game and therefore don’t like it, it’s actually a matter of taste.
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.
Conclusion: Multi-tabling does not fit 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 players are comfortable by playing 4, 8 or perhaps 12 tables.
Playing 8 tables or more are for a limited number of players. 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.
