Tournament 8 seaters / Final Table 7 seaters
« on: March 11, 2016, 10:21:52 AM »
Hi!

My tournament is 8 seaters but my final table is 7 seaters and I don't know how to setup TD about that.
My collapse order is ok, for example : table 4, then 3..., and table 1 is final table.

Anyway, I don't want to change anything manually during tournament because I'm playing too, and I don't want to forget to setup something during tournament
I mean I want TD do it by itself and I don't want to do that :
1. create "table 1" 7 seaters ans others 8 seaters
2. create all tables 8 seaters, then when one player to table 1 is bursted, manually unallocate his former seat.

Any idea ?

Regards :)

The TD won't automatically make changes to the table configuration, so as far as having the TD automatically mark a seat as available or unavailable, or removing a seat from a table, that's not possible.

But I am a little curious as to your situation.  So, do you have several 8-seat tables that you play on and one 7-seat table that no one sits at until you get down to the final table?  Or do you simply have all 8-seaters but when you get down to 2 tables you basically take one seat out of the final table so ultimately your tournament isn't on the final table until you're down to 7 players?

Thanks for your answer :)

For the moment, the situation is all tables are 8 seaters, future finale table included (but I know it will be last 7 seaters).
When I'm down to 8 players, I cancel "table 2" collapsing and movements, till I'm down to 7, and I let TD doing his job. If the last 2 tables are 3+5 seaters, I "force" a manual move to have 4+4 seaters.
I know the other solution could be this canvas : all tables 8 seaters, when we are 14, I set "table 1" (future final table) 8th seat to be unavalaible.

Those 2 solutions are not optimals because I have to be sharp-eyed and aware about adjustment I'll have to do. It is not automatic.

Your question could be : why needing 8 seaters tournament with 7 seaters final table?
It is simple : when you are to the "final table bubble" with 8 seaters final table, one table have 4 players and the other one have 5 players.
I think it is not fair.
And I don't want to do like WSOP Main event last table : 10 seaters but final table is really at 9 players left. Last table with 10 players left is a fake final table, I don't like that. Do you know what I mean?

Anyway, I hope TD dev. team will give us the ability to set up freely final table as we like.
Maybe in a next update? :D

Regards!

PS : I don't know if it is possible but when final table is created with 7 players left, is it possible that TD plays automatically a specific sound to annunce it?

As I mentioned, there isn't a way to have the TD automatically make changes to your tables configuration.  So it seems you're going to be stuck doing at least one manual step: when you get to 14 players, remove or make a seat unavailable at your final table.  You can create an event to have the TD remind you to do this, if you want.  On the Events tab, create a new event, and choose the pre-defined event "Player busts out".  Set the description appropriately ("Remove seat from final table"), and the Conditions to "playersLeft = 14".  Add an Action that displays a message and/or plays a sound.  After creating it, move it to the top of the Events list in case you have other bust-out events so this one always plays when down to 14 players.

Also, don't forget to set your collapse order so that your final table is in the "Collapse these tables last" section.  I'd recommend having all other tables in the "No preference" section.

Sure.  Same as I described, but change "playersLeft = 14" to "playersLeft = 7".
