Due to some recent ridicularse br crashaments I suddenly have no Gs, so I've moved down from 10nl and started raping 2nl for funsies (and obv rebuildment). I got fairly bored with my regular 6-tabling so decided to jack it up to 9 (yes, partly so I could feel like zach :)) but this was still seriously slow and I ended up setting a new custom layout for 15 tables!!! I managed to keep this up and 15-table for over 2 hours flat :eek:. I could still make heads or tails of the situations but it was difficult to bet the right amounts so quickly and this combined with some horrid cold deckage in the middle of the session meant that I only won at around 6BB/100 which is frankly shockingly low for 1c/2c. In summary I feel completely and utterly drained (soooooo tiring mentally and on your mouse-moving hand) and I don't think that it was of any monetary benefit (in fact the opposite was true), but it was a enjoyable experience that I imagine I'll try again at some point when I've mastered ultra-multitabling properly, which is definately good to practice at such low stakes :).

I can do 20+ tables, the secret: don't make room.

Btw, I am serious. Just think about it :)

hmmm id lose track if they all just stacked over each other, well it would take awhile to get used to it, cuz they pop up when its your turn.... what if you are making a move and it pops up, they you go back to find it and another 3 pop up, then you try to do those and then another 5 want your attention.

Dang.

15 tables

How on earth can someone play 15 tables at once? It would be so confusing it would seem to me,how can people do this and be good at it

Well I actually do it quite sensibly. I just had another (much shorter) session and took a screenshot from a random point (see below) I basically have 5 horozontally and 3 vertically and arranged so that a bit of each can be seen at all times to avoid all overlapping confusion::

Wow, 15 is a ... lot. Especially for 2 hours straight. To be able to win is quite an accomplishment and hell if you won at 6 BB/100 and we say around 70 hands/hour (that's what I find the average is I think), that's 2.1k hands in the 2 hour span and a grand total of: $5.04. OK I thought it would be higher before I did the math. Oh well, if you 60-table and keep up the 6 BB/100 win-rate, you should be making over $10/hour :). I'd like to see that one.

But I was really close to silverstar this morning (like 30 VPPs), and am feeling kind of sick, so I just wanted to get it so I could take a few days off from poker and decided that to hit it faster I'd 12-table, and hope not to loose too much. Surprisingly it wasn't as tough as I thought it'd be although I'm not sure how bad it woulda been if I did it for 2 hours. Definitely aiming for a new monitor so I can fit these tables without massive overlap. Tried cascade once and just hated it because I couldn't remember past actions. At least with 12 with extreme overlap I was able to remember "AK with flush draw in top middle-right" or "AA raised in bottom left".

For how long? I could defo do that if I played one hand, got lucky then left :)

If you sustained 10BB/100 (20bb/100 = 10BB/100) 16-tabling that's fairly sexy.

Over 20k hands, so a reasonable sample. :D
