Multi Tabling Online Poker


One of the things that I discuss alot with other poker players and players who get coaching from me is multi-tabling. Whether or not you should play more than one table at a time is a question many players have, and if so, how many is enough? 3-4 tables, 5-6 tables? Or just playing 2? My answer to the question is usually the same: can you win at 1 table?

The problem with playing more than 1 table at a time is that it requires more concentration to do it WELL. Anyone can multi-table, but can you win while you are multi-tabling? The beauty of multi-tabling is that you can increase your win rate exponentially and cut down on varience, but you can also lose more or simply break even if you are not playing each table up to your capabilities.

What I usually suggest is that you concentrate on winning at 1 table before you move on to 2. Concentrate on 2 before trying 3, and so on and so forth. There is no point in jumping from 1 game to 4 if you don’t have playing 2 or 3 mastered. You will quickly find your comfort level once you start playing more than one game at a time. Personally, I multi-table 90% of the time I play online, but the mistake most players will make is playing too many games at once and none of them well. It is fairly easy to multi-table. It is quite another thing to be successful and profitable at it.

  1. I had this very same question/problem. You answered it in your first paragraph – "can you win at 1 table?" Like you say, playing multiple games at once is easy but playing them well takes a lot of concentration and practice. Good post, mate!
