Default +roi or +tables

Hi,

Looking for some free advice from others, who have been down this road before? I would like to know what the best path is from here on in.

I am at the moment 4-5 tabling $55, I have 1600 games so far with a 10% roi. I donít want to move up yet due to bankroll limitations, so what would the best option be in the LONG run:-

A. Add tables.
B. Improve my roi.

Here are the cons that I am aware of:

A. Add tables.
I have a 20in + a 17 in, so any more than 6 tables is my current limit (self imposed due to dislike of major overlap). Another screen will cost about $USD 600.

B. Improve my roi.

This might sound strange, but I have no idea on how to improve this and even if someone points me in the right direction, how would I know if its working? (Its going to take me at least another 1k in games to see change right?)

So, what to do? Any intelligent direction appreciated [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Considering there are very few players who can maintain *significantly* more than a 10% ROI multitabling the 55s, you should add more tables.

1.) Use the Party Beta if you don't mind possible crashes

2.) Buy another monitor. Search for +2001FP +coupon to learn how to save some $$.

<--- 10 table 55's at 28% roi muhahhaah (lol.. only started so only have a 300sng database so results are irrelevevant).



but to answer your question, its clear that u need to add more tables. its just more logical. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] max at 10 tables then move up when your br lets u.

like they all said get another monitor play more tables. Unless you arent playing poker for money like all of us, then i guess dont, but the hourly rate is where its at.

I did the math and said the same exact thing. You've made $8800 and you don't have better monitors? [img]/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Get yourself a flatscreen 19" CRT (1600x1200) for ~$150.

1. New monitor
2. Gradually add tables
3. Then raise your ROI (I dunno how you plan to do that tho)
