BUT, if you are going to do this, I suggest you play a lot at once, especially since if you are doing that you won't get tons of action.
I play the turbo's, 18mans usually and though I started at 2 tables I've worked my way up to 6-8 tables and really learning them.
Bad beats seem to be a diesease lately, everybody taking them :P, just gotta keep up the volume and work out of it. I've lost half my BR in the past 3 days due to a terrible downswing.
My goal is a minimum of 100 games per week. I have not hit that goal yet as I tend to be pretty busy, although I just started the challenge this week.
I was just 4 tabling, but that's too slow for me in these tourneys. Bumped it up to 6 for the moment, but should be playing 8-10 in the next week or two. I used to 12-16 table cash games, so I'm sure I can handle the action as long as I keep playing in sets instead of continuously adding when I bust.
Waiting on a cable in the mail so I can connect my MacBook Air to my TV in order to tile more tables. Yes, yes, I know stacking is more efficient for most, but I can't pay attention to any particular player if I'm stacking vs tiling. Tiling allows me to see the overly obvious fish, stats included, and take advantage of that when necessary. IE, 10 hands into a tourney, two guys could have a VPIP of 80, but that doesn't mean they are both ******s who don't know any better, one guy could just be on a heater, and it's nice for me to be able to recognize a heater vs a donk spewing chips left and right.
As I stated earlier, I will probably mess around with turbos when my BR breaks $250 or I've completed 1000 tourneys at current stake and regular blind structure. It would purely be an experiment to determine better hourly rates. I think hourly can be higher in turbos but I definitely have more experience with a standard blind structure.
