*Please note that this is an older article about a video series on multi-tabling. For my latest blog article on how to multi-table online poker click here.
Hey guys, I don't normally say much on here about the videos that I put out for DragTheBar.com. But I am especially excited about my latest series. Mostly because it answers a lot of the questions that I have been getting for over a year on here about multi-tabling. The series is perhaps aptly named "The Definitive Guide to Multi-Tabling." Part 1 went live a few days ago and parts 2 and 3 will be released later this month.
In part 1 I go over all of my scripts and how to set them up. This includes how I move tables around the screen as seen in my youtube video from about a month ago. As well as how I 1 click join, get seated and bought in at a table, 1 click close a table, auto timebank and lots more.
I couldn't imagine trying to play a ton of tables without some of this stuff. Being able to do something in less clicks is absolutely crucial to the success of a multi-tabler. It will free up your time to do things that actually matter like making decisions in poker hands.
All of the scripts that I use are simple AHK programs that are 100% free. You can use a popular tool like Table Ninja to do all of the same things, but it will run you $60.
In part 2 I talk about my HUD setup. While I go over many of the same topics as the recent HUD series here on my blog (Part 1 and Part 2), I am able to cover everything in a lot more detail and show you exactly what I am talking about in Hold'em Manager.
And lastly in part 3, I cover lobby setup and table selection. I have seen enough disastrous lobby setups with students by now to know that this is an area where people are having some serious difficulty. Table selection is probably the most important tool to your success as a poker player in 2011 and it starts with a lobby that is clean, concise and efficient.
While there is a certain amount of "getting used to" multi-tabling that everyone must go through (that I can't really teach), I think that having the right setup is half the battle. Hopefully this series will provide some answers in that area.
