I'm not going to go into details as to how the trick works or what it does because no one deserves to have this kind of edge of everyone else.It is completely random, as if seat cards were thrown face down in the middle of the table.I was also told that for some unknown reason this is not currently the top priority MTT issue at PokerStars but that if I made it public it could quickly become the #1 priority and the loophole would hopefully be closed asap.A table break happens as soon as enough empty seats are available to eliminate one table from play.

Sometimes players may need to pay more blinds than usual, but at other times they will also avoid.Once a player has paid their entry, they are entitled to play their chips however they wish within the rules of the game.In summary, there are two fundamental goals that the table balancing system achieves, and they are: a) to maintain blind position b) to distribute movement evenly between players.While this does mean that it may be possible to move right back into the blinds having just paid them, it also means you can move from "under the gun" to a late position.
And if players are actually reaching the payouts and winning chips by sitting out for long periods of time, this is a sign that the play in these events is far too loose, and you should adjust your play accordingly.
