BB advancing or not
« on: July 22, 2022, 03:01:37 AM »
Hello!
Here is the situation:
A - Dealer
B - SB
C - Empty
D - BB
E - UTG
etc ...
D is eliminated and two new players arrive on C and D
So now is it:
B - Dealer
C - SB
D - BB
E - UTG
etc ?
So the player E is UTG twice and the BB stays at seat D (with a new player)?
TY in advance - GG

You can't come in as a small blind.

Therefore, I believe both new players need to wait two hands while E is the BB, then SB, and B is the Dealer twice.

However, in the pub league where I deal, where it's short stack turbo, in the interest of allowing players to play, B is dealer, C would be BB and D is UTG.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown.
But how much does it cost to knock on wood?

Hello Dave,
I saw this case officially during an EPT in London!
I made the remark and they confirmed me the point. But I was sure there was some different opinion like your's LOL!
For I used to make both new players wait but ONLY ONE HAND here so:
B - Dealer
C - Wait
D - Wait
E - BB
Then ...
C - Cut Off
D - Dealer (dead button rule)
E - SB
F - BB

Hello guys.

Sure, you can come in as a SB as stated in rule 10 :
10: Breaking Tables
Players from a broken table will be assigned new tables and seats by a 2-step random process. They can
get any seat including small or big blind or the button and be dealt in except between the SB and button.

So in that case :
B - Dealer
C - SB
D - BB
E - UTG

Hello,
I saw many cases by many professionals all over the world - Matter of taste I suppose - As usual (and from long years) I support the TDA so will follow the majority of their members (if any majority lol)! That's the goal of the TDA: To try to make a majority in a world very split by the rules.
So I like
B - Dealer
C - SB
D - BB
E - UTG
But will follow it only if any other managers agree here.
GG
