I've never even thought about this before because when I've played it's always been the BB so that's just how I thought it was.

It makes so much more sense to move the short stack. Not just because we don't like short stacks but to avoid one table having loads more / less chips than the others.

Do many tournaments move the short stacks?

Yeah it would be really fair wouldnt it, when the low chipped table, receives a low chipped player who gets knocked out and replaced by a low chipped player who goes all in and is called by another low chipped player who is then knocked out and replaced with a low chipped player. The table now has 12000 chips between them and the blinds are 5000/10000.

Love your thinking evilpie.

Hopkin you are undoubtedly a tool.

If a player has just been knocked out why would that table be low on chips? They have exactly what they started with. It's when you take a big stack from the other table that you get mismatches in each table's total chips.

Maybe we have stumbled upon a new variation of poker?

At the end of every level, the shortstack at each table is moved up out of their seat, and out of the competition.

Could be a goer?

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!
This is funny and so true when it used to happen in the Triangle in Bristol years ago. The dumb shorty would even pick his his chip or sometimes chips, fags and drink up and make a really slow walk 5 yards over to the other table in order to miss the next hand and then if someone busted he would sort of be in the twilight zone.
