True, but you have to be careful. I caught myself almost doing something stupid with some goofball who was something like 70/40. Obviously a dead awful player, right? Then I noticed I had oh, about 10 hands on him, so those stats meant nothing. He turned out to actually have a hand (fish looked him up), and 200 hands later, he didn't look like a goofball anymore.
The ONLY way you should be playing is watching the play on the tables, whether you're playing 1 or 6. I won't speak for more than 6 as I've never done that, but watch who does what, take notes because those mean something before the stats do, replay hands if there was info you didn't see.
Of course, that's not what I do. I surf the web and watch stuff on hulu. Never really realized how much I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Anyway, I'm sure I'd be a lot better if I didn't do that.
