Tournament: Button & Blinds

In tournament play, if a player is knocked out and is set to be either the SB or the BUT on next hand, then there should be a Dead Small Blind or a Dead Button.

Currently the button moves and allows players still in the tournament to skip their responsibility of playing their full share of the blinds.

There are two ways to handle that condition. Poker Mavens (and PokerStars, by the way) uses the "button always moves" method. This occasionally gives someone a small advantage by letting them skip a blind. But the other method (that you mentioned) gives someone the button position two hands in row, which is probably a bigger advantage.
