广西快3开奖 www.o4ve.cn Table balancing is when a player is moved from one table to another during a tournament. When a hand ends at a table, a check is made to determine if the number of players is unbalanced. Results can be:
- The current table has more than one player over the average player count on all tables.
- Enough players have dropped out of tournament, and the remaining players can fit onto fewer tables.
If either of these checks is positive players are moved off the table.
- If a breakdown is not required then the tournament moves as many players as necessary to bring the table’s player count down to the average player count.
- On a breakdown the tournament moves all players out of the table and closes the table.
In either case the redistribution process fills the tables in random order up to the average player count.
Players are removed from the position farthest from the dealer position, to the right of the dealer-counter clockwise, and players are placed in the new table farthest from dealer position, to the right of the dealer-counter clockwise.
A free seat for players on the table is located starting at the position before the dealer moving counter clockwise. These are the positions that receive the blinds in the last order. Note, that if a player is placed between the BB and dealer then they do not pay the SB, but instead skip a hand or two until the dealer button passes over them.
For example: A tournament has three tables left - table A with 8 players, table B with 9 players and table C with 10 players. The average number of players per table is 9. Therefore the player sitting on the right of the dealer in table C will be moved to table A and placed to the first available seat on the right hand of the dealer.
