IMO adding at least to 4 tables is inevitable in the near future no matter what stake you decide to settle at..
So go ahead and add another table now, stick with it for several days. Get comfy then take 3 and so on. Now dont fall into the trap of playing too many tables, you need to actually play and not go autopilot and therefore stop learning...like I think I have these past 2 months playing 9 tables at 5nl. I'm on a 1bb/100 all in EV win rate over 90k hands which is kind of lolbad...planning to cut back to 6 tables next month, at least for a week anyway.
how do you know how many hands you have played?....do you have to use holdem manager for that or can you access that information through the poker site
?......yeah i will add another table and add more gradually as i get more comfortable......and yeah, i dont want to play poker on autopilot, that cant be much fun and you're also not learning either.....the game would get boring very quickly for me if i did it as a chore.....
if you are an advanced player 9 tables might be ok.....its the guys who play 16 tables who must be brain drained by the whole thing.....i will never do that no matter how profitable it obviously is...........then again i might do it if its near xmas or i want to go on a holiday lol....
