Friends, share your experience... How many tables do you open in one session while playing? For example, I open a maximum of 2 tables, because if more, I start making mistakes... Which negatively affect my game...

Друзі, поділіться досвідом... Скільки столів ви відкриваєте за одну сесію під час гри? Наприклад, я відкриваю максимум 2 столи, тому що якщо більше, то починаю робити помилки... Що негативно впливає на мою гру...
Until you have a well-developed strategy, you will not be able to play many tables at once. my record is 7 and that's from two phones.

I use only one screen in my notebook, so I can use like 8 tables together... the more you grind, the more you achieve ITM

LOL. I'm going to try 3 today for the first time. I have very low expectations but you never know.

The optimum number of tables you should play in online poker per session varies depending on your skill level, experience, and personal comfort. It's essential to find a balance that allows you to play your best and make well-informed decisions. The optimal number can change over time as you gain experience and adapt to different games and stakes. It's always better to start with fewer tables and gradually increase as you become more comfortable and confident in your abilities. Balancing quantity with quality in your decision-making is key to long-term success in online poker.

Ha Ha! I predicted that it would turn out badly and I was right! I'm just to old and my eyesight just can't clearly see those smaller tables. I guess one is my lucky number!

Depends on game(s). More dynamic - less tables.
Zoom on P* I was able to manage 2 tables maximum.

Usual hold'em cash games - more than 4 my quality of game was poor so far.

For me, I open 4 to 6 tables at the same time.
This is something you acquire over time when there is sufficient experience.

It depends on each one, in my particular case I like to play 5 tables, I feel very well with that number.

I don't open more than 2, it happens to me that I loose my focus and can't view all my opponents strategies, which makes me commit many mistakes.

I feel most comfortable playing at 1-2 tables, but when I start playing cash games I play at 4 tables and at the same time I manage to control the game at each table. I tried to play at 5-6 tables at the same time, but then I don’t have time to control everything. Moreover, there are restrictions on pokerstars; more than 4 tables cannot be opened at the same time. When a downswing begins, you need to wait out a certain number of hands, and at 4 tables this can be done much faster than at one or two tables. When I play in tournaments, I open a maximum of 2 tables at the same time; 3-4 tables become uncomfortable for me.

If learning a form of poker, focusing on one table is wise, observing your opponents assiduously. Adding tables, no matter how good you're adds stress and reduces information; I wouldn't consider extra tables without tracking software.

It's easier to add extra tables the longer handed the game is. Full ring cash I'm happy to play four tables, as a default strategy can be profitable at micro stakes. It's also easier to maintain discipline as you are less bored when card dead.

Short handed is more dynamic, so be wary of adding extra tables.

Good luck!

It happens to me the same as you, opening several tables distracts me and I can't keep up with each one of them and that leads me to make many mistakes, the most I could play was 4 tables, but now I only do it with two anyway I get better results when I only play on one

I can play at 10 tables at once, but I'm better off when there are fewer tables. And I'm more likely to place high in tournaments when I'm playing at one or two tables. In general, this is individual, someone can play 20 tables, and someone can play three tables a lot...

I usually only open 4 cash zoom tables if there is no tournament in which I am participating, but if I am playing a tournament (freeroll or micro) then I open the tournament + 1xsng + 4xcashtable (not zoom).
And I think this is optimal for me.

Since so, many tables force me to focus only on good hands, I simply don't have time to play weak hands. Thanks to this, I don't have time to get bored and I don't play too risky combinations.

I would have to agree with you. Unfortunately, I just get bored when I have few tables At times, I may have open up to 6 tables. The trick is that you know what you play, and they just show up more frequently when you have more tales, The downside is that you have a harder time knowing what the other people are playing. I think maybe I should start cutting down on the number of tables that I play. Thank you for advice, Good Luck.

I have tried multiple tables in the past but didn't do that well I think the highest number was about 5 or 6 at the same time, I know you can have them on top of each other and the table requiring any action from you pops up to the top, but I found that terrible because you get a table popping up, that needs you to Call, raise or Fold and just as you click on any button another table comes to the top and you click on the wrong button.
Tiling tables did work for a while and 4 tables spread over the screen was great but once you get more the screens are too small for you to watch all the action on other tables. I eventually gave it up because at the very best I only ever broke even, and at worse lost every game due to miss-clicks etc.
Perhaps a HUD may have been a useful tool, and I did look into buying the software, but as I preferred playing Live games over On-line tournaments I quickly dismissed the Idea, because there is no chance of using HUDs in a Casino and I didn't want to become dependant on one.
