      at the moment i tile 8-12 tables because i have dual monitors. ive actually never tried cascading but ive heard you can play a lot more tables and most of the top grinders cascade.

      but i like watching some of the action and taking reads rather than just using standard plays which i think is a big benefit of tiling.

      This is why I tile as well.

      I also tile for the above reasons. I prefer it as I can auto fold on tables before if gets to me.

      If you want to megagrind than cascading is the way to go, but I think this way you get less time per desicion so you need to really be on top of your game.

      Stack + Hotkeys to pull out tables that require special attention.

      Where can i find hotkeys for that? I have dual monitors and would like to stack/cascade and then when I play difficult hand i want to hit one key to move it to the other monitor and another to get it back into the stack/cascade. I have heard that the mega grinders do it like that but I haven´t found any programs for it.

      Yep Tableninja for Stars (not sure if the FT version does this), but to be honest I use the AHK script called StarsStacker. I have the full version of TN, but SS is just a bit simpler and more customisable for this specific function (and free). Also SS can be used on any platform, not just Stars. There's also a new program called Table of Interest, which expands on the idea, but again it's a paid program.

      Well, since i'm the one who started...

      I play 6 tables more or less tiled (4 in the corners and 2 in the middle). I tried going up but i think it's to early for me. I am playing with stats, reads, searching players on sharkscope/pokerprolabs, and i like to pay attention on blinds changes in the late phases.

      Table Ninja if free on FT but a beta version and therefore more simpler. It doesn't move tables around just makes betting quicker/easier. It's a must

      I cascade 10-20 tables and use TableNinja to fold/check/call/raise with single buttons.

      If i'm playing 4-9 tables I like to tile and use HEM.

      I think it comes down to personal preference and playing style as well as the limits you're playing I guess. I just like to mix it up as both have their merits and I don't have a big enough sample yet to judge ROI.
