You are right. I usually filter my table scanner to display only tables with 0 or 1 people in the waiting list. 0 to 2 for full ring tables.
The best way to table select is to start tables yourself, actually. Provided you don't suck shorthanded. Fishes will just come and sit with you voluntarily. Unfortunately that's only an option at the times of the day when the number of players is increasing. Otherwise it's nearly impossible to do it.
