gotta say, Im suprised by this. there's nothing worse than losing a big hand then getting moved and having to rebuild on a new table. you aften end up posting more than your share of big blinds. you often also develop a 'seat of death' where one short stack after another get shipped in and picked off. I'm quite aware people have to get knocked out for the tourney to end but I'm suprised people would rather it be the short stack as opposed to the BB which is randon and by definition, more fair. oh well, you live and learn.

At Blonde Bash two anyone with less than 7x BB at any point will be moved into the Big Blind for each hand at a different table. That way he or she will get a brief chance to become acquainted with all their fellow blondeites prior to their exit from the competition.

There is a real art to tournament directing you know!

I will brook no argument on this, unless of course we sort the short stacks by post count and move the players with the fewest posts first.........

Move the person who has the funniest sounding surname.


Failing that, move the short stack.

Thats Mr Titiwangler out of luck then!

i agree the shortstacks should be moved - might make people try and win some chips. and i also believe they should be moved into the big blind just as punishment.

you should move the shortstack because it is the right thing to do. Anything else is very very wrong.

Funny story, another of Kirk Douglas' son's, (can't remember his name) was a rotten stand-up comedian and was once doing a gig in London, he was getting a lot of abuse for his show from the crowd, and eventually he snapped and said, "You can't do this to me! I'm the son of Kirk Douglas." Quick as a flash, one of the punters stood up and shouted, "No! I'm the son of Kirk Douglas." Another of the audience followed suit, standing up and screaming, "I'm the son of Kirk Douglas." Until eventually most of the crowd and stood up and joined in. The real son departed the stage shortly after.
