I'm intrigued by how you find 6 tabling, and how you expect to 12 table. You play on a laptop right? I have a desktop computer with 19" monitor and can tile 4 tables and just
be happy with it. Usually I play 2-3 in the default table size where they overlap a little.
How do you set up 6 tables? Tiled, stacked, overlapping? And if they are small (tiled), how much info do you set your HUD up with so it isn't all too busy?
Itís all normal 6 max. I find it an awful lot more profitable than Zoom Ė too few fish and too many nits who wonít stack off without the nuts playing Zoom.
At the moment Iím tiling 6 tables. My netbook screen is very small so they overlap. I canít see everything thatís going on, but itís not really a problem. The main thing I like is to have the tables in the same place, so even if Iím not watching every single one closely, I can remember that Iíve been 3bet a few times by the guy on the top right table, or the fish on the bottom left table has been calling me down light, or whatever. Thatís the problem I have with stacking/cascading Ė itís harder to differentiate the tables as they all flash up in the same part of the screen.
My HUD is (off the top of my head) as follows:
VPIP/PFR/AF/Steal/Fold to Steal
EP PFR/MP PFR/ CO PFR/ BTN PFR
3bet/Fold to 3bet/Cbet flop 3bet pot/ Fold to cbet flop 3bet pot
Flop Cbet/ Turn Cbet/ Fold to flop Cbet/ Fold to turn Cbet
Went to showdown
So thereís a fair bit of info in there but I find I use it all and it can just about all fit on the screen so itís ok.
I think playing 10-12 tables is probably going to be a problem on my netbook though. When I used to play a lot of tables on Party I cascaded, but that was on a bigger laptop. I canít tile that many tables on my netbook so Iíd have to cascade, which isnít ideal. I think the biggest problem will be the reduced ability to table select properly Ė Iím very disciplined with my table selection, and this will suffer if I mass table. To be honest I donít tend to take too much time over individual decisions (a definite fault of mine) so I donít think Iíll be overly pressed for time playing 10-12 tables, but the lack of table selection will hit my winrate significantly I reckon.
I finally finished the deposit bonus period and withdrew my entire roll from Stars as planned. I withdrew about $815 Ė I had deposited a total of $510 so thatís a nice $300 profit including all the bonuses etc. I then bought two Stellar bonuses totalling $60 with which to restart my roll.
And of course Ö as soon as I did that, I had the worst session Iíve had in about 2 weeks. Dropped $13 in 500 hands at 5nl. I was a way off my A game (made a couple of bad river calls totalling about $2.50) but generally it was one of those sessions where I just had nothing to value bet with, and the couple of times I did hit tp, they rivered their draw. Itís easy to feel like youíre playing youíre A game when you keep making big hands, and itís easy to feel like youíre playing your C game when you canít hit a flop.
So my roll is down to $47, which is annoying as now I feel slightly pressured at being under-rolled. Iím sure it will be fine and Iíll grind it back up to safety sooner rather than later, but if the worst happens and I hit some variance and drop another few BI, Iíll just redeposit $20 or so rather than dropping down to 2nl (which would be a complete waste of my time).
I also have 2.5k fpps, so Iím wondering whether to play a few hypers and try to turn them into some extra cash. I may do if I need to Ė otherwise Iíd quite like to keep them and see if I can have a shot at Gold VIP in the next few months, at which point Iíd buy the Gold bonus (just to save time rather than playing a load of hypers).
We shall see. GL at the tables boys n girls.
