have you played 3 tournaments at the same time? I already played that I was a bit lost, I think 2 tournaments at the same time can play with tranquility.

i typically try 4-6 or i get bored, personally. anything less and its way too slow for me.



i would focus on 1 or 2 tables until your attention span isnt completely taken.. if you have spare attention, you can add extra tables :)


edit: grammar (to, too)

I prefer to play at least 4 tournaments, but so far I do not have money for that and I play freerolls.

When is not the internet is the system that is affected. The last time that i played with 3 screens the system went out of the air and the tournaments were canceled. Anyway, you has that play with the amount of screens that you remains comfortable. To play with more screens, may be need to use some support program to help in decision-making.

Just try to gradually add tourneys, it works best if have the mtts in different stages ie have 1 mtt in early stage, 1 mtt in mid, and 1 in late. Then you can focus more on the late stage tourney if you need to. Once that becomes easy add another, lather, rinse, repeat.

I only play up three at a time. Any more tables after that I miss reads and have to rely more on math and good hands. But lately I've been trying to rely on good hands anyways.

I like playing just one at a time too because it is easier to concentrate. Two is good. Three - more is tough. It seems like I'm racing around and do not know what the opponent has for a hand. 🤠

the more attention you pay, the better. relying on math only works well when you have tons of tables (to reduce variance mostly i would think).. if you rely on reads, or have one very important tournament, theres no reason not to put all of your attention into that one table.


i like what was said a bit above about having tournaments in different stages, too. normally towards the bubble when things are slow i make sure i have plenty of fresh tournaments started so i dont get bored and make a dumb move before the bubble :p its a lot easier to let go of good hands when you have many more in the background.. that you can actually play without worrying much ;)

Hello.
I only play on one table. Once I tried to play two tables, but it was difficult for me to focus attention. I think that everything will come with experience.

I tend to only play 1 or 2 tournaments at a time, apart from struggling to keep up with the play if there's more on the go, It's easier to grab food drink etc if needed outside of the breaks without missing any vital hands.

I'm not a big fan of having to eat whilst simultaneously having a smoke whilst sat on the toilet in those scheduled 5 min breaks.

Played up to 6 already but in my experience, anything above 4 tournaments at the same time isn't recommended.:cool:

I had to play three tournaments at once. I had to use all three tickets at once in one day. That's how I played at once in three tournaments.This was not a problem for me.

Yes I have! And it was a bad experience.I have problems with simultaneously games and my mind is not smart enough to play three tables.

I've played up to four. I wouldn't recommend any more than that. Start with two, and work your way up if you feel comfortable.

Yes, more than a few times.

With a set plan and clear and simple approach I found some success.

Trying to make decisions based purely spontaneously was a disaster, not enough time.

Agree you should start with less and add more tables as you gain experience - as long as you are still winning.

It helps if you have a HUD (to track how your opponents are playing for you) if you are playing a lot... there are many people that play 20+ at a time - if you are a good player, the more you play the more you win.

When you're playing so many tournaments you can stop worrying about the bad beats and start focusing on making the most of the times you make it deep with a big stack.

Good luck to you!

I usually play 3-6 tables at once. I start off with 1 and add more if I feel I can handle it. I used to try to play 4-6 all the time but found it was -ev for me. I play better when I can pay close attention to other peoples betting habits and tendencies. When I'm super focused I can do this with 6 tables max.

I play up to 3 at a time but am most comfortable playing 2. Good to play multiple games though to keep from getting bored waiting for other players to act.

I play 2-6 because I have a 42 inch TV I use as a monitor and can make the tables big. It is pretty easy to play multiple tournaments because generally you can fold a lot more than a cash game. If you are struggling, maybe you play too many hands?
