      I play 6-max sit n go's on 888 poker, I only 2x table. I'm beating the current level that I'm on, question is should I move up to the next level or just multi-table x3 or x4 to capitalise on a winning formula?

      What's people's opinion?

      If you're asking me I'd look to add another couple of tables first before moving up.

      That's my own personal opinion though.

      Other people may say different....

      Hey ferretboy69,

      I would tend to do what andio suggested. I would add 2 tables. Then when I was comfortable and still beating the limit, I would move up but drop back to 2 tables to get a feel for the new level. Once comfortable I would start adding tables.

      Rinse and repeat.

      Having said that, there isn't really a wrong answer. Both methods are perfectly fine.

      Regards

      Laz

      Ok that's good info, I'm only recreational at the moment so only get the time for about 10 games per night.

      I think I'll steadily try adding more tables before I move up a level, I'd imagine anything more than 4x tables @ 6 max will be difficult?

      What really constitutes beating a level, consistent profit?
      888 seems to be really fishy, I guess maybe there will come a point when i'll need to move site!

      You have think what matter the most. Volume or quality of your decisions?

      In my poker quality of my decisions are worth more. If I keep playing my best and make the best decisions I will eventually win the money and increase the volume.

      If you think you can play as good when you increase stakes as you play right now, go for it. If you don't feel that you have the edge over players you can move back and work on your game again.

      if you knew for a fact the next stake up was just as soft as the stake you're playing then move up stakes. but there will be a stake level that is kind of a ceiling for you. (for example, the difference in skill between pokerstars $7 18man sngs and $15 18man sngs is quite substantial, so relevant that there are definitely winning players at $7s that couldnt beat the $15s). at this point you'd have to learn to multi table anyway...and i don't know any sng players worth their salt that can't play at least 4 tables. for me, i make just as good decisions 4 tabling as 1 tabling. obviously when i 20 table the decision making gets worse but for the hourly rate it gets me it's still worth it.
