Only thing that multi-tabling does is speeds up the process. However, it slightly lowers your win rate compared to playing 1 table. Most people multi-table because let's say for example, your win rate is 3bb/100 but let's say you play 4 tables and found out your win rate 2bb/100 each table. Is this worth the change? Yes bcz if you play 1 table, your win rate during the time it takes to play 100 hands, you won 3 big blinds. But during that same duration of time, if you multi-tabled, then even though ur win rate got lowered for those tables, you multiply that win rate by 4 if you play 4 tables, hence 2 x 4 = 8bb. so you won 8 big blinds during the time it takes to play 100 hands playing 1 table. So if you are a winning player, you can speed up the bankroll building process.
But you must focus on being a winning player first. Multi-tabling comes second. Make sure you're winning at the stake you're playing in while being able to play comfortably.
