This is a discussion on Monitor? Size? Number? within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; Hello to all! I am very interested in what kind of monitor you have for playing poker? The size? Number of monitors?
Maybe you have a
I generally play on my laptop when I'm playing my usual micro stakes. Once in a while I'll play on my desktop setup. I have a couple 21 inch monitors that I could easily play 8 tables if I wanted. Usually I only will play 2-3 on that setup and use the other for music/reviewing hands/other stuff.
My work place is 2 laptops + 1 desktop. 3 additional monitors 2x24 full hd and 1x19 square
5 monitors in total.
Playing poker on 2x24" + additional 15" screen of the laptop.
Poker isn't my main job, I'm graphical designer and programmer.
Tried to use bigger monitors, 32" screens aren't good for my work space, vertical dimensions are too large. Might switch to 24" wide or ultra wide monitors instead of regular HD.
I like playing 12 tables. During my work I usually play 9-12 tables at 24"+15". When work is done I can play at both 24" screens, having 6 tables at each monitor, which is the best setup.
I click and type really fast, faster than 150apm(actions per minute) so I'm not having problems during poker sessions combined with drawing and maybe even some chatting or posting things at different forums. Also listening or watching educational videos at the other laptop and operating machines using desktop PC... well actually machines are working 6-8 hours without interruption, i'm just watching the cameras if everything going smoothly.
I'm kind of shocked when I see that majority of my friends are playing online poker sitting at just 1 table, to me it looks like the time has stopped there.So boring... When they observe my online gambling together with all other things that I'm doing at the same time - they're getting tired of focusing on my decisions after 10 minutes of observing My GF is always nervous when she's watching what i'm doing, she says that it looks like complete chaos, but by the end of the day job is done, poker was well played, lessons been learned, machines did some products.
P.S. Thinking about welding a chair with bicycle mechanism to perform excersises for legs during my time at the work desk. Multitasking is a habbit like smoking cigarettes, it's terrible when you're trying it for the first time, but if you'll keep doing it - you will get used to it easily. Brain and body adopts to everything.
i have a decent gaming laptop (dell inspiron 15 7000) and a ~28in acer monitor..had two acers but couldn't risk bringing 2 with me to Ecuador cause they will take that stuff..also have a ridiculous/unnecessary $100 gaming mouse (which i barely put the 12 side buttons to use lol), but i f'n love it..revolves pretty colors lol
usually keep 4 tables open on laptop monitor and pt4 and other apps and youtube etc. on the big acer monitor..also have these nice ~$70 cowin bluetooth headphones that i actually recommend (i've bought 3 different brands from amazon to find the perfect ones, and these are it).
Other peoples monitor specs will not help you unless your PC (or mac) is capable of of rendering video at those resolutions. Your video card will pretty much dictate what you can use.
I currently use 2- 22" monitors Plan on going back to 3 monitors in a couple months (waiting on $$$ and pricing)
I have One add-in card PCIE NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 [Display adapter] and one
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 [Display adapter- not in use]. I have room for at least 4 monitors. But prefer 3.
My current monitors
DELL SE2216H [Monitor] (21.7"vis, ) using 1920X1090 HDMI input on Monitor 1
DELL SE2216H [Monitor] (21.7"vis, ) using 1920X1090 VGA input on Monitor 2
My eyes can't tell the difference.
The newer large screen monitors are pretty sweet similar to what grock and mattryder have. My cousin has one that is 49 inches. If I could afford it I would go with that . Will have to check out the prices on the 29 inch models lol
...I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same...
I have dual 27 inch monitors. I do not play more than four games at the same time, so that's more than enough for me. However, when playing tournaments, I like to have the tournament lobby open as well. So the extra monitor comes in handy.
And I can have my favorite forum (Cardschat) on one monitor, while playing on the other.
The size of monitor/screen must vary with that distance to you. The angles your eyes move must be narrow in a wide field in order to envolve the whole visual field at a glance. Either way, you should feel comfortable visually in the position where you intend to work in the game.
I, mostly use my MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) and always find a comfortable place to work my Hold'em, like a beach style chair.
Best of Lucky.

I currently use a 20 " monitor and play 2 -3 games very often. Sometimes I just play 1 so I can focus better. I want a bigger monitor because the tables are kinda small on this one when playing multiple games. I`m trying out a 32 " monitor and I like the bigger size better. A 40 " monitor is likely as large as I`ll go.
