When picking a table, how many players do you like?

When you're browsing through the cash tables at your favorite online poker room, which tables do you gravitate toward? Personally, I think prefer to have seven or eight at the table. I'm not as intimidated by blind hands as I am when the table is full, and I'm not overvaluing my hands and playing too many blinds like when I'm at a table with only three or four. So, I like it right in the middle. What do you look for? Also, do you check the average pot-size and percentage of players to see the flop when making a choice? If so, what numbers do you look for there, and why?

Usually go for the shorthanded tables at HE, full ring at Omaha or O8, and full ring (8) at stud.

Ditto. My definition of "short" is 6 or 7.

Online, I prefer a full 8-9 person table, Speed, if its available.

In a casino, I HATE shorthanded games, which thankfully, doesn't happen very often. This occurs more at Wynn then most other better rooms, from my experiences. Whenever it happens, I usually request a table change, which they are quick to take care of. This has, however, made Wynn my third choice for ring games of late, third after Mirage and Bellagio.
