      How many SH tables can you play at the same time and still play your best game? And what layout?

      For me now, it's 6 tables, tiled.

      check this out,i got a step-by-step guide for you to answer your question...wait for it...

      YOURSELF


      STEP 1:play 50k hands with 2 tables - see what your winrate is

      STEP 2:play 50k hands with 3 tables - see what your winrate is

      ST3P :play 50k hands with 4 tables - see what your winrate iz

      STEP 5:play 50k hands with 5 tables - see what your winrate are

      STEP 6:play 50k hands with x+1 tables,x being the last step you completed!!!

      S7EP :


      STEPTACULAR: compare winrates and see which one is the best and then you can pinpoint the number of tables you can play profitably (aka A-game)

      Note: The sample size is not set in stone and you can change it as you please,but you cannot go below 50k hands!!!OR...YOU...WILL...DYEyourhairblue!!1!

      Playing profitable doesn't mean playing A-game, because you can play C/D-game and still win longterm (if your game is good enough).


      I'm curious to see if there is anybody here that can play his best at 9 tables or more. For me now 6 tables I control the best, I have plenty of time to think on every decision and also searching and changing for better tables while I play.

      when you play more tables, your game is bound to worsen somewhat, and your long term WR will decrease, however you don't increase the number of table to increase or even maintain your WR but to increase your Hourly rate.


      regards

      Even if you are playing A-game at NL50 you can still lose in the longterm,because if it's YOUR A-game that doesn't mean it's the respective limit A-game.Besides,i dont know why you are giving specifications to an ambiguous term.

      No one can give you an answer,but yourself.

      If you play x tables now,try x+2,if you are feeling comfortable,try x+4.If you are getting overwhelmed,return you your previous number.Like you said,with your current number you can make standard decisions quick and right.If you amp up your number and your decisions start to squeak,go back to your previous number.

      These kind of questions rarely get an answer because they are exclusively individual dependent.Hope that helps.

      I am comfortable with 8 tables, but sometimes I try 12, but it dose not go so well, 8 is fine, I can follow all actions easy!

      @A-game talk, I get what you mean and I agree, I think you just misunderstood what I was saying.

      I didn't ask "what's my number of tables...". I'm just curious (and maybe other are too) to see what is the number of tables other good players can play their best game (like if you play a table at 100% of knowledge, perception and emotional control, how many tables can you add and still maintain this at an avarage.)

      I think to play your A+ game you can play from 4-6 tables. Usually i play 9-15 tho depending on how i feel.

      Most of the time i play 12 tables tiled. Im pretty sure if i move down to 6 tables my winrate would be higher, but it definitly won't be double that i'd need to have the same hourly.

      I mostly play 3 or 4 tables at a time, and it is extremely easy for me, so I am thinking of moving up soon.

      2 tables in turbo mode at NL50.
      Tried more but for LAG player it's a suicide - you need to make a lot of decisions on every opponent in every hand.

      Playing TAG is easy and you can to play a lot of tables but it's not rly profitable on such tables if you won't find any fishy player.

      If you'll - you need to fight vs TAG's for them.
      That's why IMHO is better to be LAG, and more funny too.

      When I played TAG on FL tables - I was playing something like 8 turbo tables.
      That was so BOOOOOOOOORING.
      I was feeling like a bot, not like a poker player :f_biggrin:

      I am still fairly new to poker, but i can manage my A-game at 4 tables, i am still comfortable with 6, but sometimes i feel like i don't have enough time to make important decisions post flop.

      4 tables is for A++ game, but usually I play 6-10 tables (lower the stakes are more tables I play, since ftp is down I need to grind it back)

      12 tables, 16 is where I sometimes just fold when I actually should be thinking more about the hand.

      I am new to multi-tabling so I have just moved to my second table but play 6 MAX Double Up/ (50/50) so its finished when get down to 3 players.

      Is it best to play multi table on Cash Games/ STT SNG/ MTT SNG (30 ish)/ Large MTT's

      I find its all OK in the early stages when its pretty standard ABC Poker, TAG mentality, but as it gets towards bubble (in all apart from the 50/50 or double ups) it gets me all flustered and I start making bad decisions when it gets important and end up just short.

      Is it better to use full ring when multitabling?

      I also use HUD (PK4) a bit pointless for livfe play isnt it for multitabling?

      Am I better to tile or stack?

      How should I play multitable as a TAG?

      So many questions...

      Many thanks
