What is Tiling in Poker?

Tiling refers to the practice of arranging poker tables in a comfortable way (most commonly a mosaic/grid) with the goal of keeping every table visually available to help the player with the challenge of playing multiple tables.

One common complication that appears when trying a mosaic tiling approach, is that depending on the resolution of your screen, you might be limited to only 6 tables or sometimes even less. But that was not the end of it, and different kind of creative arrangements came up for players to play multiple tables comfortably.

Common Tiling Setups for Online Poker:

  • Basic Tiling or Common Grid: The mosaic or grid approach is the most common setup because it will allow you to keep every single table big enough and visible at all times. Since it is space comsuming, it is common for players to play with up to 4 monitors in their setup.

  • Stack Tables: This means keeping all the different tables on top of each other, so you basically will only visualize the one on top. This could be your pick if you play on a laptop or have only 1 screen to distribute tables on.
    This approach can be benefitial, but it often requires Focus Management tools to get the most out of it.

  • Mix of Stack & Tile: This mixed approach utilizes Stacks to keep tables that don't require action, but as soon as it's your turn, the table moves to a Grid where you place your focus.

Pro & Cons about Basic Tiling

  • By avoiding stacking and overlapping, you will be aware of how many tables you have going at all times.
  • Creating an evenly distributed grid will use a lot of screen space.
  • When playing 12+ tables, it might split your focus more as tables will be more spread.

  • You can read the Table Management article to dive deeper into Layout Creation.


Pro & Cons about Stacked Gameplay

  • Will allow you to play many more tables using a very reduced space.
  • Since you will have only one visible table per Stack might be challenging to keep track of how many tables you are playing. (Table Counters do help with this though)
  • This is a great fit when playing from a laptop, or a small resolution screen.

  • You can read the Stacked Gameplay article to dive deeper into this mechanic.


Pro & Cons about Stack & Tiled Setups

  • Is great for players that have hit their limit and are looking for a way to unlock their multi-tabling and finally increase their number.
  • Allows you to keep your visual focus on a specific part of your screen where the important tables will be moved to.
  • If you come from a Basic Tiling setup, you might have to first have patience with yourself while you get used to a new organization method.

  • There are a few alternatives when considering this mixed setup (We refer to these as Dynamic Layouts). You can decide your tables to move when it Requires Action, or when you Voluntarily Put Money in the Pot (VPIP).


Conclusions

Now that you know about poker tiling and the different organization methods, its time you get hands-on and actually experiment in order to find out the approach that gives you the most comfort when multi-tabling.
