  • Cant help but feel resentment

    Towards people who multi table alot of tables. After all multi tabling 9 -10 tables and going all in when you get monster hands is hardly skill is it.

    well speaking as a player that plays 6 tables and trying to build towards 12 i say why not?

    If i only push my monsters and get paid then its not me without the skill its the other players who fail to pick up how tight i am playing.

    however what i expect will happen if i only shove premier hands is i will go bust as i will

    A) blind down as i don't get the prems that often

    B) get no callers to a shove.

    Are you saying that Randy Lew has not skill base or are you bitter because a really tight player who was multi tabling and shoved and you called him ?

      Not sure where you're coming from with this comment, but it takes a lot of skill to multi-table. Just shoving monsters wouldn't work for the reasons stated by GradeB, although most who multi play a fairly ABC strategy.

      Your job is to figure out how to exploit whatever strategy the other players employ - even the pros can be beaten.

        so to look at it another way why am I multi tabling.

        Well starting at the 1/2 cent tables NLHE and trying to build up to 25/50 cent by the this time next year.

        So i looked at the win rate for a good play and found that 4bb/100hands is great.

        That means for every 100 hands i play i (if I'm playing my A game can expect to have 8c profit (averaged out over 1000's of hands.) at the speed of most tables that's 8c per 2 hours or 4c per hour.

        I started with $70 and I aim to get to $150 to move to next level and start some Sit and go's too.

        so i need to make 8000 c at 4c an hour is 2000 hours of play. I only set my self 4 hours to play during the holidays and 2 when I'm working even if i do 4 per day it will take me well over a year to get to the next level. By multi tabling I can bring this number down.

        And thats a high number for bb per 100 hands i don't think i will be able to make that in anything other than the 1/2 level afetr that i hope i can be over 1bb/100

              Ok only ever played two of these, but i think the same thing applies, knowing when to push/having the patiance to wait for the right moment to push is a skill. In fact with the hyper terbos that is the whole idea.

              In his Sit and go videos Spacegravy uses them as a recommendation to practice push fold ranges.

                hi horatio your strategy for hyper turbos should be a push or fold approach, with the blinds on rapid increase theres no time to try and out play anyone, thoose hypers are a lottery, and if you get the cards its all good.

                hope this helps different thinking for a different format.
