I like to do 2 at once. It keeps me from getting bored.
Sometimes I do lose track of who is tight and who is loose but I normally notice the rocks and maniacs.
I often play Omaha hi/lo so the cards are more important than the players and hands take so long that I can play one and not have to keep folding on the other table.
I have played 7 play money tables for a laugh and it was a nightmare. I don't see how anyone could do it for real money
Another thing that I have done for fun is play 4 tables at once with 4 different games. Omaha hi/lo, 7 card stud, no limit Holdem and Razz.
That is enough to fry your brain.

Watching the 2004 WSOP profile of "Crew" member Scott Fischman during one of the broadcasts last summer, I noticed that he was shown sitting at his home computer, playing online. His monitor was displaying four different tables in quadrants. Since I haven't encountered a poker site which has this sort of display option, I assumed that it was a hardware package he was using. Anybody have some input on that?
I don't know what you mean by "in quadrants" but I have set my screen resolution to 1600x1200 and I can get 4 games on screen at once. It looks like my screen is split in 4 with a game in each corner.
Is that what you mean?
It is cool because the screens don't flip back and forth either and I can watch all 4 at once. I get plenty of advance notice when it is my turn to act.
