View Full Version : Multi Tabling with non-resizable tables

02-08-2008, 07:02 PM
Is anyone able to fit 4 tables on their screen without the big overlaps on sites such as PW or P4E? I hooked up my 32 inch HD LCD TV and raised the resolution on my settings to the max. That didnt work, all i got was the extra space on the sides. Any help would be appreciated.

U can buy a second screen and use tham side by side. Then configure your computer accordingly. The problem is you have to move your mouse a large distance. Tried it for a while but did not like it. I play relatively shorthanded,on max 2 tables, And I am continuosly in the action. But if you like 4 handed on fullish tables, it would be an option for you.

I could fit 4 with no overlap on my 19 inch old monitor at 1600 x 1200

My new 22 inch wide screen I have to go to 1920 x 1080 and I don't like it. So I set it at 1680 x 1050 and tolerate a little overlap

The natural resolution of a 22 inch monitor is almost always 1680x1050. Only one 22 inch monitor (Lenovo) supports 1920x1200 (and it's overpriced and hard to find). When you hit 24 inches, the natural resolution becomes 1920x1200. For those who are wondering, that is full 1080p HD so you can hook up HD-DVD or Blu-Ray players to those monitors.

Barton, I'm not sure why your 22 inch widescreen is defaulting to 1920x1080. It is supposed to be 1680x1050 to look right.

It's not defaulting and it says the 1680 x 1050 is best. It just is capable of going to the higher one

I run 1280x1024 on 3 monitors, and usually keep my poker games on one or two of them, with whatever else i'm doing on 1 or 2 of them also

I normally play two tables, but lately i've been doing 3-4, usually with two on one and one-two on the other. My setup isn't really optimal for 3 monitors, two barely fit on the desk, and the third one is on a shelf in the closet next to me lol

The left most one is a 17" and maxes at 1280, with 1024 being optimal, but i ignore that :) , the other two are 19's, but one maxes at 1280x1024, and the other one does 1600x1200, but the one that does 1600x1200 has severe brightness and clarity issues at all resolutions, but it gets really really bad at 1600x1200.

Hope this year I can upgrade to some LCD's.

Monitors are cheap. The 19 inch I had lasted 2 years did 1600 x 1200 and only cost me 125$. It weighed about 250 pounds lol but I could 4 table on it with no problems.

1600 x 1200 is certainly the magic number for poker. When I bought a laptop the only thing I looked for was a 1600 x 1200 screen.

I use 2 Dell 2007FPs, it is a pretty classic setup I think. In fact, I might get another one.

i have a 19inch Belinea monitor, must be 8 years old.
perfectly sharp with 1600x1200 and 4 tables, the best thing i ever bought that runs with power. ;)
my 2nd monitor is a 21inch compaq v1100 i got for free from a friend.
when running 1600x1200, the screen is noticeably worse than the Belinea though.
