Instead, we could move all short stacks to their own table, and let them play amongst themselves until they have a big enough stack to be allowed back in.

  Smithy, this thread is about moving shortstacks not for blind date

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.

We move the shortstack here in the north!!! It is the best way, i am never shortstck so don't get moved... Why would i want to cart around my masses of chips when a guy with 1 chip could be moved table!

Maybe even into the BB that would be ideal, UP THE LADDER WE SHOUT!

Having played an online MTT and been on a table where every time they moved the BB they seemed to have just had a hand & had a decent amount of chips, everyone moved in had a low stack. When they broke up the 2 tables for the final table I had the biggest stack at my table, on the final table EVERY player from the other table had more than me.....

Move the small stack.

She has a hell of a lot of posts for a newbie. You can't actually tell how many posts she has made as the readout resets at 100,000

On top of going to their own table, any short stacks should be moved to the smoking section of the club.

I have played in UK and Vegas and it is always the short stack who is moved, regardless of where he is in relation to the BB, or where he will be in relation to the BB.    I think this is the fairest way of doing it, natural selection.

I'm just a Tribeca online player, where the shortstacks are routinely moved, just after they hit the big blind on one table... and then moved into the big blind on another table... for double punishment.

Frankly, I wasn't aware that there was another way of doing this?

I suggest that all small stacks are moved to a table in the car park, where they have to play whilst dodging traffic. At the same time all players with normal levels of chips can have a break and throw stones at them.
