Is the idea to sit at 24 tables and autofold as quickly as possible, but keep an eye on the game number, so if you do manage hit the lucky hand, you can shove instead of folding?

I've never played that many tables before and hate overlap, so hopefully they will pop up when the action is on me.

They pause it for like fuckin ten minutes before every milestone hand, so itd be pretty hard to fuck up and fold during that one, but micro fish do it at every hand ive watched be dealt so far. pretty funny.

Sit at 6 max fast microstakes tables.

Fold as quickly as possible. Do not wait...just fold everything. Overlap them all, in the same exact spot so you can click fold easier....make sure you do not time out of any tables....because you will never know you're sitting out.

While you are auto-folding, either look at the Game number in the top left....to see if it's gone past 25 billion or go in the main lobby top right corner...there's a bubble that tells you where the milestone hand is dealt. It should tell you the hand number 25 billion. Click on the table name and hope it brings you to one of yours.

Or actively search your tables to see if you are in there. If you are make sure you have not preselected the fold option. I don't think there's any real way of faking your opponents out....maybe say you have aces and shove...and hope someone is dumb enough to fold.

Edit - I forgot to mention, when the milestone hand hits...Stars pauses everything on that table. They let guys come and watch. So you will probably have a minute or two before the actual hand starts. Don't have to worry about accidently folding your hand multi-tabling.

The 6 max part does make a difference...not only you get more hands in....but also if you are in the milestone hand and lose....you split 100k with the rest of the table. Splitting 100k with 5 players is a lot more than splitting with 8.

About 4.5 hours for the last 100k....so prepare another 4 hours from 21:30. So should be hitting around 1:30 to 2 AM EST.

I only have a touch pad mouse so doing more than nine or so tables can get to be a bit difficult, so I'm sticking with nine. But these micro limit assholes keep playing their hands even when we're with 20k hands of the milestone (this I'm finding to be a bit frustrating).

I got booted from a table or two, which sucks. but I've got like 15 tables cascaded nicely on my screen right now. I'm going to try to get up to 20 or so for the big one.

Sitting in and posting and folding takes forever. I need to disable that stupid "Checking is free" option next.

I'm glad I'm practicing a bit.

3 million hands to go.

This time, I started with everything closed and tried to get going with < 100k hands before the milestone. I was able to get on a whopping FOUR tables.

So I'm probably going to get set up for the big one before (and after) 24,999 and just sit out and play some from then until 25b.

Man, I better win that $100k after all this work! heh.

Ouch. I was like 900+ off at my closest table and was in a pool with 10 other guys (we'd chop the cash if anyone hit) and no one hit. Meh.
