Not to try to hijack the thread, but I'm trying the same thing with the $5 I got free from Pokerstars this month...Started March 1st playing .01/.02 nl. Just playing at a single table mind you, trying to stay in the correct bankroll management mode, if there even is one when you only have 5 bucks to play with. lol. But you wanna talk about BORING.....I've played an hour or two 3 or 4 days a week and I'm at about 3200 hands.I'm up to a whopping $12.75!!! :club: Not sure what my real goal is. Just to try to get the bankroll as high as I can get while learning as much as I can along the way I guess.Wish me luck!

About to play for a bit before my home game.I've decided once I reach about $300 I'm gonna try .05/.10 again. This time I'll try 9 tables.If I lose money at that level I'll go back to .02/.05 and slowly grind it to $375 or $400 and try .10/.25.

Playing for about an hour or two and broke my winning streak. I lost $4.40, so less than a buy in. I'll try again later tonight.

I played 1600 hands and made almost $5. I was down $5 at one point. Half of the session I was playing at 9 tables but then my aces got cracked by jacks and I jumped to 3 more tables. Next session I will do 12 tables of 5nl. I need 26 more FPP's and then I get my $50 bonus. Once I get that I'll have about $300, I'll jump to 10nl and 9 tables.

instead of playing a million tables of microstakes might it not be more productive to play one or two tables and work on getting better at poker?also

usually when things like that happen and you are losing you will not play your best. the solution is to play less or not play at all. adding more tables is putting in more hands when you are not in peak form and is the exact opposite of what you should be doing.

not exactly, if he is playing well, and he is getting it in good but it doesnt hold, that isnt his fault, keep playing. Grind it out, you will win if you keep playing your best. its when he is getting it in bad is when he will need to stop playing.

I disagree with both. When my aces were cracked I wasn't tilted, I wanted to see what it was like playing 12 tables. When I get a hand like aces cracked it makes me play better because I want to make up for what I lost. I don't really tilt, I play really tight so I don't get into much marginal situations.When you say play one or two tables and work at getting poker that doesn't really make much sense. With 9 tables I will see MUCH more hands and get MUCH more experience. Do you mean I should play one or two tables of a higher stake or just at the same level? When I only play at 1 or 2 tables I get bored and tend to become more aggressive and more loose with my starting hand selections, which means... more marginal situations and more money lost.Seeing 1600 hands in 2 hours as to maybe 300 in 2 hours will improve my game faster.

no it won't. its like driving really fast. you miss all the little subtle things that go on around you. you must think im a confrontational bastard. i'm not. i'm just noticing a lot of little things that i wish somebody would have told me when i was starting out.

you don't have large enough sample sizes to make a correlation like this.

Then how many tables is considered multitabling but still having the ability to focus?I will six table .25/.50 LH full ring, sometimes up to 10 tables. Would you consider this to much? What about quantity of 6max tables?

First, What subtle things will I be missing? I'd really want to know... I know how to play the game, I'm not a beginner.Second, I dont need to back up anything. It seems like I'm doing better when I'm playing more tables. You have no idea. This wasn't a fact that was stated, I said I seem like I do better. I can say anything that I want about what I feel...Third, What's your online name and what site do you play on?

There is no deffinate answer to this. You are the only one that can answer this. Do you think that you can focus when playing 10 tables?Some people can play 20+ tables at a time while others can only play 2. You have to find the correct number of tables to play that will give you the greatest profit. In time you will be able to add more tables. I can't tell you to just play 1 or 2 tables because I have no idea what your play is like and what your capable of doing.~thanks for the reply
