Title: Random movement
Post by: Morina on January 05, 2018, 09:01:37 AM
Is it possible to trigger a random movement of a player from one table to another? Preferably not when all seats are taken and not when all tables have the same amount of players.

An example:
When there are 2 tables left, one with 6 players and one with 7 players, the program randomly selects a player from the table with 7 players and move him to the table with 6 players every 15 minutes.

No, there's no feature in the application to do this.  You would probably have to use the "Random Player" feature found on the Players tab, and it would still be a little tedious as there's really no way to narrow down the field to a particular table.

Everyone plays a little differently, but I'm still curious as to why you would want to do this.  Is it to try to be even more fair when there is an uneven number of players at the final 2 tables?  Swapping the "extra" player back and forth between the two tables to even out the disadvantage of the blinds coming around more quickly at the table with fewer players?

Yes, it is to make it more fair regarding how fast the blinds comes around, not only when there are few tables or players left but through the entire tournament.

I think we will use the random player button as you said, we can just click the the button until we get a suitable player.

Thanks for the quick responsen!
