I focus mainly on my table except when approaching the bubble I like to see if there are many smaller stacks on the other table(s). Early tournament, in my live tourneys, stacks are deep enough for most players that detailed stack sizes is not as significant most of the time, but not always.
Mid and late tourney I pretty much want to be aware of each stack size and relative position to me. Stack size, among other factors, of both me and the others affects my play or fold decision and my bet sizing.
