Table seating tournament
« on: October 02, 2015, 03:09:30 PM »
Hi

I weekly host a tournament of 4 to 5 tables
I print the receipt when they buy in
My problem is like many on this forum that tournament director random Seats players
So tables are not balanced and ghost stacks sit next to each other.
When i manual move them it Will not print a new receipt.

Is it possible that the software still random Seats players but it fills the odd seats (1,3,5,7,9) first per table and if they are full at all the tables it fills the even seats (2,4,6,8)?

Or that i print the receipt after i move them manual to a diffrent seat?

Greetings,

Winston

This has been discussed many times in the TD forums, most recently here: http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=5010.0

One method I believe Asegzamfire mentioned is to make every other seat unavailable.  Then, once the tables fill up, open up those seats by making them available again.  Of course, that topic I referenced above has some good arguments as to why seating should always be completely random.

As to the receipts: no, unfortunately as of today the TD software will always print the original seating assignment.  It's on the to-do list to allow the receipt to provide the current seat instead, and should be available in an upcoming beta release.
