Several people have asked me recently for a photo of my set-up, but I've been a bit lazy at getting around to it.
I have recently upgraded to:
3 x 30" Dells
Quad processors (2.40 Ghz)
2.00 GB of RAM
150 GB HD
NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT Graphics Card
NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT/GTO Graphics Card
The Quad processors seem to reduce the lag that you often see when using Full Tilt with PAHUD.
I set PAHUD to use CPU 2 and 3, and Full Tilt to use CPU 0 and 1. (Task Manager --> Right Click Image Name --> Set Affinity...)
The 3 x 30" may seem like overkill (as you could easily use just 2 x 30" and play 9 tables on each quite comfortably) but I like the larger table sizes as there is plenty of room for the PAHUD stats.
There is definitely an advantage to using a tiled display rather than an over-lapping cascading set-up, as it allows you to keep an eye on everyone else actions, and therefore pick-up on vital reads/tells.
At a guess, the whole set-up would probably cost around $6k if purchased from scratch- probably closer to ₤6k(?) if purchased in the UK.
Muppet of the Year 2007: Narena
I can only remember mis-reading the board once before on the river while multi-tabling. In that previous hand I held the 2nd nuts (JJ on a Jh 3h X 3 Yh board) and just called the villain's rivered flush bet because I had missed the board pairing on the turn!
Last night's hand was just as bad- I just didn't see that I had 2 clubs and thought my call was with TPTK! I ended up leaving $100 on the table- what a fucking muppet!
