Not surprisingly there is no guaranteed recipe for success when it comes to multi-tabling, but the good news is that playing two, three or four tables simultaneously is by no means two, three or four times more difficult than focusing exclusively on a single table. In fact a key aspect of your game can be made even easier by multi-tabling – namely hand selection. We are all guilty (with just one table) of ignoring logic pre-flop by throwing money into the pot with mediocre hands, either because we simply like the look of them (don’t get friendly with 73 suited, for example, because it gave you a big win a couple of times and is now your favourite hand – in fact if you must have a favourite I suggest AA) or because we overestimate their potential in certain situations. Boredom is another excuse (if you’re bored you’re doing something wrong), and another reason why multi-tabling could be for you. Adding a table or two ups your hands per hour rate considerably, giving you less time to talk yourself into making poor pre-flop decisions (note the imperative optimistic poker player’s approach – less time can be a good thing) and essentially forces you to tighten up this vital part of the game so that you can be properly selective and thus confident that when you do get involved in a hand you have more strength. There is also a positive knock-on effect in that you reduce the number of times when poor pre-flop play puts you in an awkward post-flop situation that tends to compound the problem – with your attention required elsewhere the need for clinical, logical decision making means simply letting go of potentially troublesome hands in order to focus on hands that really do have legs (if you will). To sum up, even going from one to two tables affords you better concentration, getting you into the habit of sensible hand selection by increasing the rate at which you are dealt genuinely playable hands – multi-tabling helps tighten up your game.
