Just a quick question. How do most of you arrange your 3 or 4 tables if multi-tabling.

Thanks

I tile them, then expand them to as big as I can make them.

I play mostly on a 12" macbook so space is an issue:

for cash sessions
4 tiles to fill the screen, stacking 3~4 tables in each slot; table pop on action

mixed cash +MTT/SNG
tourney on default size (ctrl + B) with 2~3 stacks filling the space along the margin.

You could shell out $300 for two monitors that can accomodate 6+ tiled tables each. I'm actually saving my FPP's for something like that. I'm not planning on mass multitabling yet, but if I get that good, I'd need more screen space, since I won't stack the tables if I want to actually observe them (which I believe would be the most +EV approach).

Real tough multitabling on a netbook for sure.

sick if you can do this on a netbook I can only imagine what you can do on a 27 inch monitor....

For 4 tables, I just tile them, after that I start putting them in the middle of the tiled ones, so I can get two rows of 4 tables on my screen, and if I want more I will put 4 more towards the right edge of the screen, so I have 3 rows of 4 overlapping tables. I find that if I stack them I never find out whether or not I won the hand, because some other table pops up while another table is in showdown.

I tile & expand up to a max of 6 full ring or 4 fast [6 max] tables. Nothing to do with space... my brain hurts if I play more than 6 tables at a time

Four was the limit I had gotten to comfortably (three was still my optimum for results however) and I had started to try out five tables when BF hit. For 4 I tiled and the fifth table when I added one I put smack dab in the middle of the screen.

One thing to be very careful of when multi-tabling is watching out for mis-clicks when you jump from one table to another.

Also to me if you are multi-tabling a level that you intend to be playing for quite some time to come and you're playing so many tables that you can't keep up with effective note taking then you may want to scale back a little. If you plan to play a certain level for any type of meaningful sample then note taking is crucial as you will see many of the same players over and over again.

For tiling pokerstars table are 483x354 at the smallest so you can take your monitor resolutionsand divide them by those numbers to get a idea of how many tables you can fit on a screen.

Just info for any one buying a new monitor since the size isnt as important as the resolutions.
