I though I would share something I recently realised and have found useful when multitabling Zoom.

The time bank allocation on Zoom tables is relatively generous, but it is still pretty easy to run it down to zero on any one table. Especially if you find yourself with two or more tricky situations to manage at the same time. Once the time bank is run down you have far less time to "park" a hand while figuring out an action on another table. Some players may be slick enough never to get into such time trouble, but I suspect most of us do find ourselves up against the clock like this at times.

So, here's my tip. Whenever the time bank gets used up, click on "leave table at next big blind", and simply close the table and open a new one in it's place, complete with fresh time bank.

It's one of the advantages of the Zoom format that you can do this. You can use the same manoeuvre to cash in a very big stack you have built up, and restart the table with your original buyin.

I agree, I do that all the time
It's call take the money and run
My biggest amount of tables in one session (1 hour) was 32 tables
