Why do I play better when multi-tabling?
A strange one this. I think I know the answer but I'm curious to hear other peoples views.
I play micro stakes online, mainly in 9 seat hyperturbo. More variance, more aggression, and most importantly for me, most games only take about 15 - 20 minutes (I rarely have more than that in a spot to play.)
Also, for context, I play strictly for fun. I consider a losing session I enjoy to be a win, and a winning session I don't to be a loss (see my previous thread). That said, its always nice to win.
Now here is the weird bit. I play much, much better when I'm multi tabling. I started doing that for fun and usually play 3 tables at a time. In the later stages If I've stayed in all three tables to the last few I'm snapping out decisions in a few seconds. I have, in the past, been heads up on 2 tables and one of 3 on the third. Its frenetic!
I've read my share of books and blogs and have a pretty good grasp of the maths. However I seem to do better when I don't have time to apply that, when I just make snap decisions.
Whats up with that?! Does anyone else suffer this strange affliction? It doesn't cause me a problem in live play...
