If your not careful you could have a huge amount of money in play and risk a higher amount of bankroll if your not careful.
The percentage of your bankroll at risk is increased as you win more and more during a session. So sometimes getting off a table with a lot of money is best option to keep the percentage of money in play lower.
Exactly, I agree with both replies.
You need to follow a BRM strategy (I personally like the BRM from the BSS - Big Stack Strategy, which argues that you always buy-in for the maximum the table allows, and you need to have 25 of those buy-ins at least) that tells
you how much the buy-in is, and how many buy-ins you should have on your bankroll to play at a certain limit. If you can, I'd also follow a 'minimum stack' and 'maximum stack' at a table. For example, if I buy-in for 100BBs at NL2 ($2) I will rebuywhen I hit 50-80BBs, and get away from the table when I get 150-180BBs, unless I have a pretty good reason to stay at the table (for example, 1 or 2 very fishy players I have position on, but otherwise I found leaving the table helpful to protect my earnings and because I tend to get ****y with a big stack and start making dumb plays. Other strategies (for example SSS - Short Stack Strategy - and pretty sure MSS have already fixed numbers for when you should rebuy and leave the table).
But once you are following a strategy, it applies no matter how many tables you are in. The only thing you need to do is to keep your eye in the BankRoll when you open a table. For example, you may have 4 tables open and when you are oppening the 5th you realize you only have $40 left, so you should open a NL2 table instead
