I voted for moving the big blind because it seems fairedt.

Guess we'll have to go with democracy at the end of the day though.

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.

Surely the short stack is just getting in the way anyway, get rid.

IN MY LOCAL CASINO PEOPLE WHO ARE SHORT STACKED ARE MOVED, AND THEN MADE TO WEAR A DUNCE'S HAT. THEY ARE THEN KICKED AT LEAST 10 TIMES BY EACH PLAYER AS A DETERRENT FOR LOSING CHIPS.

We move the Big Blind

But may change to moving the short stack. It sounds like the best way to get rid of these players. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

The short stack should be moved. They tend to hold up the game for better players anyway by only playing premium hands and never bluffing!

I think they should be moved..............................................to the Blackjack table!

Moving the shortstack seems smart. They've got less chips to carry and are for obvious reasons are less likely to put up a fight.

Also its a good laugh if they move and are knocked out next hand.

If you move the short stack, theres less chance of chips being lost from the tournament.

Clumsy big stacks just drop them on the floor when they move and don't notice, bad for the game.

I'm coming around but not quite convinced yet.

If you have two tables left and try and keep the Shortstack in but knocking others out you can sometimes get a great game of Shortstack tennis going!
