True. In this case I saw a lone duck sitting at a bunch of tables and smelled blood. And I have enough of a roll to absorb a loss at 5/10, so took a shot at him. Rather, I took repeated shots in a hit and run (or drive by) fashion: When he was occupied in a hand at the full 1/2 game, I popped in to his table at 3/6 and played a few hands, took some cash and ran. Then when he started talking in another game, I popped in at 5/10 and took a few down and left. Then busted him for the antes at 2/4 and left. Then played a few hands back at 1/2. I was watching him; he wasn't watching me, until he was down 200 or so. He he he.
I have to say multitabling in stud is a bad idea; you can't read all the boards at once. Multitabling HU at hi limits is suicide. He was a sitting duck. The hit and run strategy kept him off balance while I could focus on the tables I wanted to.
It is not unusual to see lone ducks sitting at several higher limit tables at once looking for HU action. Hit and run worked, in this case, to separate this guy from his chips.
