I have been 6-tabling 10NL for the past month or so and my question is this: What is the best layout for multi-tabling? Should I cascade my tables or tile them? I have been tiling my tables but my computer screen isn't very large, which means my tables get very small and sometimes hard to see. By cascading my tables, I am able to have the regular sized tables but it seems like it may be harder to follow.

I just finished another session by tiling the tables. Next time I will test out the cascaded tables.

when i multitable i like to leave them normal size but just let them overlap over each other laying them across the screen
i find that when u tile it, it is way to small and it is easy to lose a table if it is cascaded
I think it's just personal preference - I play by tiling them as best I can (I fit 8 on my screen with some significant overlap), and can see the stats etc just fine.
The problem with having your tables overlapped (ie cascaded) is that you'll often find yourself misclicking bets which is never good. It's also much harder to keep track of the tables since they're all bunched together.

It makes sense that cascading would make it much harder to multi table and may cause more mistakes. I will try using the cascade layout and see if I like it.

if you stare at small little screens all day its gonna **** your eyes up in the long haul. overlap never hurt anyone, just make sure they dont overlap right on top of each other so when you go to hit "raise" the new table doesnt pop up and now you've raised the wrong table. lol.
