Online poker is attractive, among other things, by the fact that each player can open as many tables as he likes at the same time. The skill of playing on a multitude of tables was called multi-tabling.
If the player competently approaches to training this skill, then multi-tabling can significantly increase his income. And, on the contrary, if the player’s training system is not available, he can quickly lose a significant part of his bankroll. In this article, we will examine the main features of multi-tabling, its positive aspects and negative aspects.
The purpose of multi-tabling. Advantages and disadvantages
The goal of simultaneous multi-table game is extremely clear – the more windows a player with a positive winrate has, the more he will win. In addition to the most obvious goal, there are several other advantages.
The more tables, the less time for boredom. Over time, when a player develops a certain strategy of the game, and many actions he begins to perform on the machine, he has a need to launch more tables. If this is not done, the player can overtake the so-called “non-standard game syndrome”. Playing in such a manner, a person cranks too drawn and risky bluffs or makes a lot of questionable calls.
Dispersion is smoothed due to the large number of hands. A good player does not have a goal to win every hand, he has a goal to play a plus game. But dispersion is a cruel thing, and everyone has faced the fact that his correct and positive actions lead to a loss once. If you play 2-3 windows, then it can greatly damage your nervous system, but if you have more than 10 open, then the losses at separate tables will be mitigated by the winnings for others.
Bonuses are recouped faster. Many rooms have tried to develop attractive loyalty systems – the more hands are played, the more bonuses you get.
Simultaneous game for many tables has its own pitfalls, which should not be forgotten especially for a beginner player.
