BB All-in Malfunctions

Postby drw111 » Tue Mar 01, 2011 7:52 pm

When the BB goes all in and loses the next persons BB is skipped and has to post only the SB. I have two licenses running on two seperate servers and
this has occured on numerous occassions on each. Are you aware of this or is there a known fix for this? Thanks

That's not a bug. Poker Mavens uses the same "forward-moving button" rule as PokerStars and the other major sites. Here's their text on that from http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/tournaments/rules/:

PokerStars uses a ‘forward-moving button’ rule in its tournaments. According to this rule, no player ever receives the button twice in a row; at the completion of every hand, the button is moved clockwise. The implication of this rule is that when players are eliminated, there may be players who get a reprieve from one or both blinds. Since these are basically random occurrences, no player will receive any long-term advantage, and the rule is necessarily fair for all players.
