2NL Cash Game Multi-Tabling. How More Tables?

Hello,

I was wondering if y'all had any advice for bumping up the number of cash game tables one is running. I'm currently a 2NL online player, slowly climbing my way out of the bankroll pit I dug after starting out. Apologies if this is the wrong section to ask, still new to the forum.

With two 2NL tables on PS (and my pal Poker Copilot), I find I am getting a win-rate of about 20BB/100 hands over 1196 hands. I know it's a very small sample size, but I hit the books, got more aggressive, and my game has improved significantly within those hands. Playing more than one table was really the biggest improvement, as I find I'm more patient with my card selection pre-flop.

Playing two tables is going well, but as soon as I open a third my win-rate drops significantly (as indicated by my stack-sizes). One I close that third one, my stacks on the other two start to jump back up. I could chalk it up to variance but I'd rather blame myself and try to improve.

I'd like to get myself up to playing four tables at 2NL, so I can build a bankroll and earn my way up to 5NL. I'd be grateful if anyone who has followed this path could offer some tips/advice, or suggest some learning resources for this specific skill.

Cheers,
Me :)

I am a player of nfl 2 and the truth is that with 4 tables that I play I feel good, you will not always win in all of them but in the long term it makes a difference.

I have like five tables at the same time

You also have to have a computer prepared so that it does not work with lag, very important not to strain the cpu

Ah fair, so it's basically just gotta practice and grind at it? That's doable, at least the losses at 2NL hurt my ego more than my wallet :D

I've realized I gotta focus on my small-ball ABC poker, as laid out in a recent(ish) Splitsuit article I read. I end up grinding up 100BB off fish, then get myself into large pots where I'm either out-played by someone else who's going fishing or I somehow let the variance hit me in the face.

If you want to play more hands per hour give the zoom tables a go.
