Rebalancing in MTT play has gotten ridiculous for me recently.
In the last two MTTs I’ve played in, I got bounced around in the first one to 4 different tables. I wasn’t even in the tournament that long, only about 20 minutes.
The one I’m in currently, I’m on my 3rd table already, and I didn’t even sit at the second table long enough to play a hand. I got in unable to play from the small blind, then rebalanced away to a new table after a big hand went down between two other players.
I’d like to know how the rebalancing algorithm works, because it feels very wrong to get balanced that many times that quickly. There ought to be some kind of mitigating rule in effect, that you have to complete an orbit before you can get moved to another table again. Or something.
