sorry man, haven't been on this for a while haha. i am not sure actually, i have holdem manager 2 but i stopped using it a couple of months ago when my laptop broke and i couldn't get it working again. so i don't use any software atm. got my best scores when i haven't been using it, so think i will just stick to not using any software bar checking opr daily.
going back to your original question i would say my pfr and vpip are definitely higher when i am playing one or two tables. you are usually able to benefit from the multi tablers usually playing tighter because of all their tables and the rec's being fairly poor players and thus a good source to accumulate chips from. when i am playing a lot of tables i still open light from lp and try to pick my spots with light 3 bets etc. but on the whole i probably play tighter. i don't mind playing either style like sometimes i will just play really tight when the table is crazy, and get ultimate respect for any pfr or 3 bet. which is nice. but on other occasions i will play crazy, and raise like 50% of hands if i am the big stack. here's a hand that unfortunately didn't work out- http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...980_AE4BB2F76F
but i had a crazy image and prior managed to get a player to call oop with A Ko v me and then bluff away most of his stack on the river when we check both streets- i had K 10o and done a tiny 5 bet which looked very stron and flopped an open ender that i was fairly happy to see a free turn/ river with as the pot was so huge.
imo either style is effective depending on your table dynamic and how comfortable you feel playing them. probably gone off on a tangent to your question but hope this is fine haha.
