Not I... perhaps you
I get far more bored on live poker tables.
Online I'm playing multiple tables & just way more hands than live.
I'm also completely aware of all my stack sizes on all tables (while in tourneys, if its cash I'm playing I'm at 100bb's plus & the size of my stack isn't all that relevant unless the other player I'm in a hand vs. is sitting deeper than 100bb's (while (or if) I am as well).
It's far easier to keep track of stack sizes online, vs. seeing how high my chipstacks stack up live. In a live tournament setting, stack sizes can be misleading to observers unless they're very familiar with the chip denominations & colours. Online, you have a number written right in front of you (it doesn't get easier than that).
