I would like to highlight the pros and cons with multi-table playing for online poker players.
New poker players are perhaps wondering, what multi-table playing is about?
It means you play more than 1 table at the same time.

What could be the downside of multi-tabling?

When you feel that the multi-table game affect your results it is time to take a break or simply stop. It's very important to closely monitor your results.
Conclusion: Multi-tabling does not fit for everyone.
