Multi-tables II

By: la;yton99 @ 18:53 (EST) / 476 / Comment ( 0 )
Well I have been doing the same today with the multi tabling. It is strange I can't seem to get ahead. I've made about $6 dollars in profit so far that isn't how many I've won but taking away what I've lost too when not placing. It is a gain but nothing compared to if I had played 8 games in my usual manner. Maybe it is just a down swing and I am over reacting because I am playing a new system. Been knocked out by Ace rag a lot today which effected my results.

Then again 8 games takes me about 2 or 3 hours usually playing 4 at once and makes me about $4 an hour. So an hour of play gives me the same gain. Argghhhhhhh so confusing.

I keep getting knocked out by people that I usually don't play against. Classic case today I was short stacked after going all-in with A-K against A-9 he hit the 9 to double through me. Next hand  I went all-in with 8-8 against the blinds and got called by K-3 suited only for him to hit the straight on the river. Checking the history of that game as I had finished my remaining games I saw that the same player had made those kinds of calls the whole time against short stacked players. Normally with 10 blinds left I'd have waited against a player like that or limped and gone all-in on the flop.

Given up on the .10c and .25c MTT games as it is raising raising calling all-in etc I've placed twice but nothing major.  Not getting the time on those to wait for hands. Seems they are treated like freerolls as the buy-ins are low. I acutally folded Queens today and was proud when the 4 players all turned over
A-A, A-K, K-K and J-J a King came on the turn!

A couple of big bluffs went wrong on me which doesn't usually happen. One I sucked out on with Q-9. hit trips on the flop and full-house on the turn got called a donkey for my efforts. The fact that I got 2 callers when I went all-in and both hadn't hit the flop at all but had big Aces A-K and A-J. It was still a busted bluff in my mind as I was called orginally I was chip leader so decided to have a look when someone raised  I was going to bluff  the flop anyway if no Ace came.

The other one I bluffed at a pot all the way to the river and got called with top pair. Oops! Out of that game. Blaming it on not seeing who I can bluff and who I can't as my attention is divided.

Not sure how to solve the multi-table problem at the moment. At least I haven't lost but it has been a lot of play for little gain. I think tomorrow I will play my usual 4 games tiled see if it is my playing style, just a down swing or because of the multi-tables. I could be playing too many as play 8 single table sng and 2 to 4 MTTs or freerolls.
