The wiring between the gfci and a receptacle fed by it MAY have sufficient inductance to prevent the circuit imbalance currents to be above the threshold of the gfci.

Realize a gfci does not sense currents to ground directly, butrather by detecting a current difference between the two line supply conductors.

In my case all outlets down stream of the GFCI outlet are protected on each circuit. They are wired in series so if the GFCI is tripped at any outlet on a circuit all outlets on that circuit are off.

----------------------

That's how I had the kitchen at the rental wired in. instead of removing the yellow tape and running the current for the next plug through the plug before it,,, using pig tails / jumpers from the line current to the gfci will allow them to operate separately in a parallel circuit.if you run the current through the first plug the others do not need to be gfci and will still be protected .
