Playing in more than one game at a time

I dont like it and feel it is the one flaw in REPLAY poker. No matter how skilled you think you are, you inevitably slow down both of the games you are competing in. Playing in more than one game at a time should not be allowed

how do you play two games at a time???

Regional leagues have MTT Tourneys spaced just over hour apart and it helps 2 Multi-table when needed.

There are too many factors involved to just come out and say it’s slow play because players are playing multiple games. How many times in over 6 years did I apologize and other players in the chat for slow play because of lag times caused by the internet connection. The clock is the clock. When your times up it’s up and then your out of the hand. Please take into factor different internet speeds. I personally don’t play multiple tables at once, don’t know if I could…have fun and enjoy. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Waiting down the clock can be a strategy, too, in order to get to the larger blinds with less play. This saves on your stack.

For the longest time, I didn’t understand why some players were . always . so . slow. Then, a friend explained this strategy. There’s always something new to be learned when playing online vs. in person! :smile:

To make it clear, slow play is a legitimate strategy under some situations, My mild complaint is selfish folks who are playing in multiple games at the same time and slow down all of the games

If I am playing for points for a leaderboard MTT then i will slow play if i need to if I am short stacked and hope others go out before me… But for ring game points promo I can play 5 tables without slowing a game down. But for MTT then 3 max. I like to push myself once played royal, texas, hi lo and Omaha thought it would be fun… I shake my own head at that one.

But I never slow a game down if I am playing multiple tables - unless I am doing for a strategic reason

Agree a clock / timer is there but unless there is a reason behind it (strategic) then its more like attention - I do often see players in ring games doing it for a reaction (so they get a zzzzzz) and they are only playing one table

Yes I can play many tables as I have the computer / screens to do so and I have always said this I do think that this is NOT fair in certain promotions to others… For a promotion when its ring game points, the max tables that count at any one time should be 3. I can table up to 10 for a promo. Well at least I am honest :blush:

Hmmm… Oldbru have You ever tried playing 2 games at once? Truly no problem at all. I used to play a tiny game to the side when in a High caliber game. Keeps My betting demon satisfied with no ill effect to big game. A few players want the button to hit them just before it is to be raised for all others in Sng-Tourney play… Game within a game… I agree Tiggy I have tried the variety pack of Games several times and have given it up…lol … Good-Fun 2 e1… Later, Gator

We want players to be able to enjoy playing at more than one table if they wish to, so we don’t plan to change this. If you’re looking for a game with a faster pace, look for tables or tournaments that have a white lightning bolt –

I don’t think I play any slower per table playing 3 tables than 1. I’m not even sure I follow why that would make me play slower at each table. Playing 8 or more, you might get 3 or 4 tables with a hard decision at the same time on rare occasions… but I remember watching one pro who played 20 at a time and was always lightening fast on every table.

Sometimes, players just leave the table. I find this happens most on 3-player tables (Sit-N-Go). They have either left for a tournament, or, it seems sometimes, wanting to play a quick ‘all-in’ game, than waiting. That can be a bit off-putting, and is why I don’t play the higher stakes tables. I don’t want to yawn around to keep clicking, and it’s bad form.

If this is your beef, I hear you. Thing is, the only choice is to relax, and let that go. There’s so much more in life that we can get up-in-arms about.

Hope that was helpful. xx :slight_smile:

some times players got locked out of replay and have no choice but to leave replay and log back in… if winning worth it…but if low on chips … this could take 10 min or more… so just give up…

I can play two tables at one time without slowing the normal flow. Maybe in an hour I will need to pause (and take more time) once or twice. …less than the average person does playing one table. Also, I often play on the Tables with 9 players and I often find that too slow for me.

A good answer that I think is specific to oldbru’s comment. However, I imagine as others have said here that it is possible to play more than one game at a time without slowing down the tables involved. But, to those who do slow down all the tables that they are playing and think it’s okay - it’s not. I almost always have a alternate game going on my phone when this happens so I don’t get irritated and have also, seen that it tends to make others at the table focus on other things as well and that can lead to a very slow table indeed.

Slow play ? Players just trying to manipulate the RNG plain and simple !

Hi @Alleycatt,

You do know that the “R” in “RNG” stands for “random” right? If it could be “manipulated” it would be a “PNG” (Predictable Number Generator).
