I am the same way - I stick to one table most of the time but will do 2 once in a while. I know when I do that I miss things.

Ya chris is rite, for play money its ok but for real money you can make lots of mistakes, play money costs you 0,, real money could cost you your bankroll,,,,i opt to just play 1 at a time now, and seem to play better that way cause im just concentrating on 1 game>>>>>>>>> buck:cool:

I do like doing two tables, one Omaha H/L and one Texas Hold-em.
I don't do well on ring tables, but much better in sit and go's with max 9 players..........not sure why yet.
Getting very burned out on large tournaments.........do well in the beginning, but then get restless after 1.5 hours of play and start playing like crap.
So will stick to one table tournaments sit&go for now, but play 2 tables at once.

When you multi-table you have to rethink the hand and choose the right decision. I stick to 2-3 though still.

Ack yeah, I used to love multitabling, more tables better profit right? Wrong! (For me at least). Like you said guys, you miss out on alot of things, player read goes right out the window, and sometimes u miss a 4 suited or connecting board like Chuck and it sucks.

I thought pretty much the same

i used to wonder how on earth people played 4 tables at a time, now i play 8 at a time. go figure. :p

I willl play anywhere from 4 to 8 tables at micro tables cuz I fold pretty well everything but premium hands. I have run into problems though if I have action at more than one table and need to stop to think hard. Then the screens pile up and I wind up all inning the crap and folding the AA by accident. :)

At higher stakes .50/1, 1/2 or 2/4, I pay solid attention to all that is going on, I might be playing a freeroll in the back ground but thats the game I don't pay any attention to. It does get boring though to play just one table.

Every once in a while I need a concentrated fix of poker. (where's my dealer?????)

I do the multitable donkngoes and load replacement games to keep it at 4 tables for 2 hours or so. No real money here, just a quick way to feed the donkey monkey.

Then , depending on how I feel I was playing at the last table or two, I might get into a real money sng. But usually it is dinner time.
