I've had the huge drop in my bankroll. And currently I'm doing my very best to grow the bankroll again. I'm out of trial time with HM2 and so I do it purely on my gut and the poker I learned over the years.

First of all we got to analyse what is negative on multitabling? The clear and obvious answers are:

- You can't watch your opponants play anymore, and wouldn't be able to tell whether its his first 3bet or his 5th 3bet in a row. This also makes it harder to add notes to players. So in general you'll outplay less people.

- You get less time to make a choice or you might time out on a table and therefor muck your hand.

- The more tables you open the more standard/ automated your play becomes. Decreasing your BB/100 hands for most of us.

Then now we have to wonder. Why would we add more tables as these 3 negatives are pretty significant in poker. This can easely determine you as a losing player, just because you play too many tables.

 

Even so, we can still take a look at the positive sides of mass multitabling and what it can make us learn?( I'm not gonna sum up like above but add a more descriptive answer)

- Say you are used to playing 2 or 4 tables and have no trouble following the hands, make notes and still have plenty of time to make the optimal decision. You could start firing up an extra table, thus stimulating your brains to work harder and process everything faster. it will be way more exhausting but your brain will get used to it. Combined with playing more hands providing you great help. However in this method you have to Tile your tables, so you can follow all the action. Therefor you are limited on your screen(s)size. For some screen you'll only be capable of opening 4tables, others 6,...  The idea behind this method is to keep your winrate as high, but put in more hands per hour.

- Unless you add at least an extra screen, it is near impossible to Mass multitable in a Tiled way. So the way I use to multitable if I play more than 4 tables, I stack them. By stacking you are incapable of observing other tables, only when it is your turn your table will pop up, or if you finished the action on previous tables. So why is this positive? Well by everytime adding a table more working your way up from 8 up to 24. You'll notice yourself foricing to make quick and good decisions. Let us say if you make bad decisions, your bankroll will drop fast and you know something is up. Before you can even concider trying this, you have to make sure you know what and where you are going to open a hand. And how your decisions are postflop.

Due to this method of playing you'll discover the hands which are rare and difficult for you to play. It are those hands where you have to think a bith longer compared the normal postflop hands. If however at any point you can't follow up witht he action. Make sure you lower your tableamount. By sitting out you spew chips! But if you are positive in multitabling 8tables stacked, you can be sure you'll also be positive at around the same winrate on 24tables once your mind gets to that part.

Let's quickly look at an easy math problem here to discover which is the most profitable. Lets say you 4table and do as method one. You are capable of making 20BB/100 hands. Which is a very nice profit. Now lets say you 16table at 5BB/100 hands. This is playing way worse than the 20BB/100 but don't we make more money an hour? Lets say we play 1600hands on 16tables, at the same time we'd have played 400hands if we were 4tabling.

16 * 5BB = 80BB = 4 * 20BB

So you can see on average you'll be break even. So you got to outweigh what is more important for you. Notes on players, or VPP + rakeback. This is a decision you'll have to make as a player. Obviously if you are capable of playing 24 tables your profit will be more than 4 tables. And with more hands, your skill will improve aswell.

- Now a very important advantage about mass multitabling in a stacked way. You are incapable of viewing the result of a hand. You can't see whether your bluff on the river will get the desired fold. Or whether you AK was a good all in 4bet jam. If you are a good player and have the software you will obviously analyse it afterwards. But the point I want to make here is that you will not be capable to view whether you AA held up or got cracked. This way you won't be affected mentally by the result of the hand, as you have to assume while playing you made the correct play. Thus keeping your mind and mentality where it should be! As poker player we should step away from result oriented play, and in some way watching your AA get cracked or win don't help us get away from that. I got so good at it now, let me explain with an example: This saturday I was playing the 5k chromestar freeroll. We were with 10 left and i was 2nd or 3th in chips with KK UTG. 1guy that had me covered called me from SB and the BB which I had covered by 10BB squeeze jammed. I obviously shove over the top. My KK's got cracked by a set. The very next hand I lose with my 66 against button vs SB eliminating me from the tournament in 2 hands, where I had a good chance of winning. I don't like telling bad beat or unluck because I really don't even care anymore. All I cared there was whether I made the correct move. And I did. When my KK got cracked or at the time my 66 lost and eliminating me on 10th place. I didn't even have a bad feeling in me. I wasn't sad, mad or anything. I politely said "gg gl guys". Hopefully you as a reader will do the same next time.

- Bonus which works in line of the argument above. Most players including myself for a long time always kept an eye on my bankroll while playing. This way I could always tell whether I was up or down. And actually making me uncontiously playing resultbased. I wouldn't like to admid it and would've probably denied this in the past. But ask yourself the question. Are you determined to win the money back in the session if you are down 50BB? If yes you'll be thinking moneywise and not playwise. It is like setting pokergoals. You can't say every week I want to make 1000BB profit. You can only make good goals in saying I'll analyse X amount watch Y amounts and play Z time. Instead I play a game for myself. I play a session and make sure I'm not watching the cashier. After the session I think back of how I played and how I feel about it. Then try to estimate how much I would've won or lost. So far I'm actually amazed on how accurate I can make those estimations. Why I play this game is so I think back of the important spots and whether my mind can reproduce them. This shows me that I can accurately make the good decisions within 1-2seconds.

 

For the record, I'm not by any means a professional mass multitabler. I'm experiencing it as off now. In past I played up to 15tables stacked maybe. However now I'm capable of playing 22 tables comfortably 6max for 2NL. Working on my way towards 24 tables.

Good luck at the tables and may you succeed in whatever you want to succeed in poker.
