i chose to move the short stack. lets take a few minutes to look at a few reasons:

moving the short stack:
they obviously dont know how to keep their chips and so could be considered dead money - keep them on the table and use them to build your own stack? however, if they dont know how to play well then they could really call anything and so win a monster hand with betting on rubbish when you bluff at them - do you want this to happen? play is not disrupted as they leave as they dont have that many chips to move across - this can be done quickly and efficiently. once a player cant put in 2x BB then he isnt worth considering and is jst taking up a seat that could be occupied with someone with more chips for you to take.  in fact, why move them at all? just split the remainder of his chips amongst the other players at the table and kick the loser out into the streets.

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


sorry, I missed this one at the time. Classic post in a classic thread.

What rebel voted for 'moving the button'?!

Could we please have that removed and added to option A.

Pronto!

just sounds to me like an amazing lack of vision. Surely they should be taking heed of what people are saying??

Yes we all know that customers moan regardless, and even when things are going wrong some will still compliment the place, which as long as there are compliments coming in i guess they dont care. Sounds like a bit of a challenge though and i can see why people said Nightfly did a remarkable job with such constraints, kinda makes me fancy a pop at it tho lol as i know gala management in some clubs are willing to listen as me old guv'nor is making slight changes for em in Brum

<Serious>
Moving the BB makes more sense, as moving tables is an information disadvantage, I can see no sensible argument for picking on the short-stack in this spot. Moving the BB is fair as even if they move into the BB on their new table, they are not out of pocket. If you've just folded your SB, leaving you enough for one real raise and 9 hands to pick it, then get yanked into the BB, you've been done.

We should definitely move the people with the worst haircuts.

leave the short stack alone........................................................................................
........................................................................................
.............................................................................................................
.
...........................................................thats it just stand up and leave them, stop the clock and all go for a beer.
They will then become so insecure and build a sense of unfullfilment with the game, they will then leave quietly and never play again.





or just swop SS around between each other every hand until they feel sick.
