When you play on semi final table. Do you turn on second semi final table and check, how they doing?
Sometimes yes, sometimes I watch how my opponents play at the second table, especially if it's the stage before the ITM. In such situations, it is especially interesting to observe opponents with a small stack :)

Of course, not only to see their game, but to see if someone goes all-in, then what are my chances going forward.
If there are only two tables left in a tournament, the prize can increase significantly for each eliminated player.

I sometimes watch it to see if another player is about to be eliminated for the next pay jump.

I watch, I like to follow along to see how the players are playing at the other table and to see when a player drops out of the tournament

Sometimes I do. Rarely, but there are situations when it is fundamentally important to understand the dynamics of the game at another table. It often happens that players deliberately delay the time in order to take a better place without risking it, and in such cases, it is necessary to use trivially similar methods :)

Yes, I often do. Especially if I have enough room on my duel monitors.

Not that often, but I should do it in all the ''most relevant'' tournaments, when I'm still playing at more than 8 tables there's still no space on the screen to see clearly, lol otherwise I'd have to sacrifice some ''irrelevant'' table ' of the moment.. There may certainly be some important information on the other table if we actually arrive at the FT!(y):cool:

if possible, then yes, I open the table so that I can roughly imagine who I will meet at the final table, if I make it to it myself, I think that many players, having reached the semi-final table, play their exhibition game

I usually watch the second table quite a bit. This way I can collect information about the possible players who will be with me at the final table. Like what kind of hands make what kind of bets...

Yeah, always if the buy-in and the prize pool are high.

I like to look at the other table, especially if it is players I am not familiar with.

If I have time I will sharkscope the players and review any notes on them.
