I am searching some web applications which makes it possible to play simultaneously Poker Texas Holdem, for instance in 9 tables.

Which online sites or applications are good for playing poker simultaneously? Any recommendations about setups, strategies and so on are also welcome.

  • Have you tried anything? Almost all online sites make it trivially easy to launch a new window per table. Jun 2, 2015 at 17:49
  • @ChrisFarmer I have automatized Lord of Ultima to be played in 9 TTYs in Linux such that I wrote small scripts and put my computer run that script series randomly such that the detection system of the system could not detect me. However, I think here with a poker it is more important to have all acute screens at the top. So the system should highlight those tables where I have least time left. Is there any poker tables which indicate the time clearly and how many opponents before your turn? Other things may be there too which I have not considered. I am a newbie here. Jun 2, 2015 at 20:03
  • So your intent is to create a tool that enables collusion by allowing you to simulate several users at once? Jun 2, 2015 at 21:55
  • @ChrisFarmer No. I do not want to simulate. I cannot automate Poker playing. I would like to make it smooth for me to play at many tables simultaneously. Jun 3, 2015 at 5:59
  • If you're a newbie, you should not attempt multi-tabling. It reduces your EV drastically. Multi-tabling is for extremely experienced pros who want to extract the most profit out of micro-stakes at a fast rate.

There's a big number of applications out there, ready to ease your massive multi-tabling such as Table Droid (as mentioned by @XVirtusX) or Table Ninja.

Keep in mind that these programs don't not do anything more than positioning your tables, open new ones and may/or not optimize your bets. Poker companies are very picky to extra real-time information like remaining number of players or remaining time left to act.

Talking about pokerstars, for example, there is a big list of allowed / banned software list here. The programs referenced above are allowed.

Most platforms do a very nice job opening and sorting off whatever number of tables you open, including focusing any cascaded table window if there's action to be made. The programs above are for the power users who playing, say, 20+ tables at once and action is rapid. Did you tried multi-tabling by what the platform is offering you?

Also, keep in mind that for 10+ tables you may need an additional higher resolution monitor, although that's opinion based.


Certainly customizing hotkeys and layouts for automatic table placements on screen is of big help for anyone seriously considering multitabling. I recommend you to use automatic Table Droid. It has all this features and it is free to use playing in microstakes.


I believe Pokerstars will allow you to play up to 5 play money tables at the same time. You could play on another site at the same time to add more. Most poker rooms will have a cap on the number of play money tables that you can play because you are not a paying customer of theirs and therefore you only get to use so much free bandwidth :)

  • i think pokerstars allows you 8 tables maximum for play money (cash) and 4 for play money (zoom), which is indeed a bandwidth cap, at least for cash games
