This is a discussion on How many tables are you comfortable with? within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; How many tables are you guys comfortable with at one time? I'm usually comfortable with up to 6 9-person tables, but only 2 heads up
Maximum two. In this case I can watch some youtube video or tv show at the same time without any trouble. Three tables (and more) needs much more time, attention and concentration for me, so it can be named comfortable.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

If you are using your reads to play it is hard to play more than 3 tables and still do a good job. If you are big hand fishing play as many as you can get on your screen. Fair warning though you need a massive bank and even more perseverance to grind a small profit from the second method.
Depends on the buy-ins and the speeds. If the buy-ins are at my normal range and the speeds are regular then I'm comfortable playing up to 4. If the buy-ins are bigger then I'd normally play then I'd stick to two. If they're hyper/turbos then I'd stay round 2-3 otherwise I'd timebank out.
How on earth can you play more than one table? I have tried playing 2 and 4 tables at once but I cant handle it. Get too confused. To play a decent game I stick to one table. I find my best concentration that way. Good luck.
I like three 9 player tables in a tournament. Feel out all three and cut down to one by the end of the tournament. So you end up losing two tournaments you have to make up in the third. Usually one table has enough chips to make a serious run.
I'm best playing when I play only on one table. I can concentrate on all the important factors. When I play on multiple tables, I do not follow the game, but I'm just playing on the strongest cards. Other I throw

Only one, i like to play writing notes about my adversaries, and i just can`t do this with 2 tables or more. Liking or not you will loose some important details, and will play based on less information, that can cost you a lot. But if you`re extremely fast and concentrated person keep going.
5-6. If their number is more than 6, then they don't fit well on my monitor and therefore it causes me stress because I have to decide which ones to cover with others. And as I play MTT mostly (they obviously don't start all at the same time), it means that I have to decide this while already playing at 6 tables. And then I'm worried that I'm missing something important at the tables that are covered.. So for me it's too distracting to operate 7+ tables. Maybe if I get a second monitor, I will find out that it's not that bad. But for now I have to pay extra attention to not register in more tournaments that fit my monitor and my mind
When I'm playing free rolls, no more then 6 at once. When I spend some money I play just one. If i'm almost in the money in a free roll i will sit out all others. I find I do much better when I play one at a time. Only problem with playing just one is I get bored if I'm on a run of bad cards.
It is depends on the situation and your poker game level I like to play 2 table when I play zoom cause there are too many hands and when I play 3 table on zoom I can't concentrated and when I'm not playing zoom I like to play 3 tables cause often with 2 tables it is really bored.
The best when we play poker is play our best game so the most important is feel confident and comfortable on the poker tables in order for earn the maximum we can and lose the minimum we could in our sesions.
I like action, so I prefer the zoom that is more dynamic. I play on up to four desks when I'm just focused on the computer.
When simultaneously I am doing something else play some tournament at just one table with much more calm and patience.
