I do think that if you are multi tabling cash games, you would be better off using one.
Agree with the "one-of-a-kind" PooffyFooffy.
Playing one or two MTTs without a HUD, one may actually do better, but multi-tabling (cash, SnGs or MTTs), you are better off with a HUD (Or a BOT).
Obviously, we are speaking of "on-line" because using a HUD during a "live" tourney may be most difficult.
Maybe using a HUD can help you as a "teaching tool", but to be able to actually play good poker, one must simply do it themselves without the HUD crutch (building an internal HUD and confidence).
I don't use a HUD. Maybe I should, but I do ok when I concentrate and stay focused on the tournament (No more than 2 games at a time). I sort of consider a HUD to be a distraction from my "thinking" about the tournament itself and the other players play. I know I am likely wrong, but that is the way I view it.
Good luck either way!
