The good people are at a lot of tables.
Lets take extremes. If a good player can play at only one table. They can only take money from bad people at one table. If they can do that at 10 tables it increases their win rate, and they can take money from the poor players at 10 tables.
The poor player will probably only be at one or 2 tables.
Now if there are 4 good players playing at 10 tables (that's equivalent to 40 good players) and 50 poor players at 1 table each. So that's 10 nine player tables full with 4 good and 5 poor players.
Where do you think the money will end up and how fast?
Now lets look at everyone can only play one table. Now we only have 54 players which can fill up 6 tables. Lets assume the good players know each other and wont sit at a table with another good player. Now we have 4 tables with one good player and 2 with no good players. Now how fast will the good players take the money?
Also think about the people at tables with no good players. Now they get a sense of being better than they actually are, keeping them playing longer, and maybe even depositing more money (because they just ran bad).
Also think of the 10 tables when a good player to make a decision and time out on another table. The other 10 tabler's won't mind much, but the poor players at one table will, and may leave.
Bottom Line; The poor players will loose their money faster with multi-tablers than with good players only
allowed to play at one table.
Also: Why do you think online poker is so much different than live poker? I contend it has a lot to do with multi-tablers.
