I took this from another site... A supernova heads up player

I am going to share a secret with you all.

The key to learning poker is 1 tabling. The key to continuing to improve at poker is 1-2 tabling. Stop the mass-tabling, esp if ur at lower stakes. Practice doesn't make perfect in poker, practice make permanent. Cut back on your tables and focus more on improving your decision-making. The $/game that you gain from improving your strat decisions will eventually outweigh the money u were making from vpps. The average poker player is getting better every day - don't let your game stagnate and eventually find your game pretty far outdated.

I was focusing on playing too many tables for a while the past year or so. I still worked on strategy a lot outside of sessions, so my game continued to improve, but it could have improved a lot more if I was able to think and implement new thought processes while I played. Cutting back tables is the most valuable lesson I've learned from talking to H2olga (Spamzor has posted this on 2p2 a lot as well). These are 2 of the best husng players in the world and they got to where they are mostly 1 tabling (adonis, icevenom too!).

The key to your long term success is your short term decision-making.

good luck


There is no need to mass table if you cant learn while your playing

Yea good stuff roomik. I have been reading on this as well. I think I do better playing only two tables at one time. I dont get bored and I can think on my play. I all so can pick up patterns that I could not find if I play more then two at one time. Six just kicked my butt so nah, no more or the 6 table thing.

More then two it feels like I am just clicking the mouse to stay up. Not to count my mis-click mistakes. This is IMO put I to am leaning to only playing two at one time. MTT or ring games.

Thanks for the post and the link buddy.

I was playing 14 plus tables . I have now switched to just 4 tables . I think in the future I may play 6 tables but at this point in time I will only play 4 tables at once. Playing too many tables does reduce your ability to make good decisions.

I can only do 1-2 tables at a time. I don't see how guys like nanonoko can do up to 20 tables at a time but they do and make a profit from doing so. I like to keep things simple and usually do 2 tables at a time but sometimes I only do one if I'm doing particularly well at one table and struggling at another.

Most of the super nova elites play 24 tables at a time.

i don't have a problem playing multiple tables and can do 8 at once
it's just that i don't like to for the same reasons you stated roomy
i normally will play only one but sometimes two and i have the club chat up to keep me from getting bored

good advice

If any of you out there have experienced FullTilt poker, they offer what they call Rush Poker,,,,very similar to multi table play,,,you just sit there and fold a hand you don't like,,it moves you right away to another,,,fold,,,,fold,,,,fold,,,,AA OH, I'll play that one,,,,,ect. as fast as you want to go.....multi play at it's best. It was a Rush to say the least...So just play premiun hands, fold the rest. Minimal decision making and fast. It was all good til I got booted. But that's another story for another time.

I'm at the point now where 2 tables is enough for me. I look for a 10% return on my risk buy in. If I sit down w/ $10.00 I get up when I win $1.00......sit w/ $20.00, get up w/ a $2.00 win,,,ect

good for bankroll management. I don't lose very often. Just go slow and pick a spot,,,bingo

It's tourney play that I'm concentrating on now,,,that's a different critter altogerher.

I just multi tabled 9 tables the other day and had a winning session of $40 playing 5NL. I actually was searching these forums to see if anybody knows what stakes you should be playing to play say 9 tables at a time as far as bank roll management is concerned.

After withdrawing, my bank roll is only up to $158 now and I play 5nl and with 9 tables that would be $45 dollars in play at once. Is it okay to do this as far as bank roll management is concerned?

NO
There are many threads on this, do a search in these forums
Also do a google search and you'll find plenty of info
