Hey folks!
This cowboy challenge sounds great, I'll give it a try with the 25c/45-players tournaments.

I don't expect completing the 100 games as it's the 10th already, and playing more than 1 tournament at a time have been proved deadly for my bankroll for some reason. When multi tabling should help me to be more selective with my hands for some reason the opposite happen .

If you have any advice about how to start multi tabling (how many tourney to start with, when opening new ones, coffee with milk or just plain tea) I would be happy to receive it!

I'll then give it a shot for 50 games in 20 days, and maybe next month I'll be ready for multi tabling.
Good luck for your challenges guys, mine starts now!

When to start multi tableing/ how many tables . If you normally play one at a time them try 2 for a while.

I found that when trying to complete the challange when i was thinking out it (fretting) if you will i did not do as well.

Just play the game and ceck progress as a by product not the main thing.

I have tried about 5 of these challnges science they went formal and have been succesful in each one.

(doing ok in current one)

Like grade b said, just try 2 tables initially. You might well find it hard at first, but you will soon get used to it. You can comfortably fit 2 tables side by side on any size screen. Just try not to panic when both tables start beeping at you at the same time, you have plenty of time to act.

Good luck with your challenge.

Ooops I forgot to add, You should register for both tourneys at the same time, i.e. a s soon as you have been seated at the first then register for the second. This way both tourneys will start at around the same time and so you will be at a similar stage in each tourney throughout. This will allow for less confusion when switching between tables. Hope this helps.

Ha well...... I didn't find the parachute yet. Still going down. But I flopped my very first royal flush ... at least

I will try again tomorrow with 2 tournament opened... It's not that I'm not quick enough, it's that if I get rivered in one tourney I will make mistake in the other one too! If I'm knock out from one on an unfair beat that's gonna jeopardize my second one. I felt that many time! What I need is a chill pill.
