Playing above your bank roll


Playing and managing multi-tables

By: la;yton99 @ 20:07 (EST) / 473 / Comment ( 2 )
I've just started multi-tabling today. Usually I play between 2 and 4 games tiled but today I was playing 7 to 9 games on cascade view. I found it a bit difficult to keep track of what was going on for the first hour or so but soon became used to it. I even folded Aces by mistake about the second hand I played!

The main problem I faced was observation became impossible.
I went up against players that I would normally stay away from unless I had exactly Aces or Kings. A-K all-in was called by A-4 and you guessed it he hit A-4-4. Didn't knock me out but did halve my stack. I was knocked out 3 hands later by A-A  I had K-K how typical is that! Out in 4th one off the money grrrrrrr.

I didn't do well in the first 10 games I played. One third, one second and that was it.

Second round I played I did better. Had two 1st, two 2nd and a 3rd place. I also came 12th in a MTT sng. I actually only just broke even but I will see if I can perfect how I do it.

I don't know how people play 20 games at once. I had it hard playing 9.
