Im a bit frustated and confused about how table balancing works. Was playing the double trouble today and after 1 hour i was at a table with 8k chips while the other players stacks ranged between 6k and 18k. After i went trough the blinds (2k bb and 1k sb) tables got "balanced" and i got moved at a table in the BB with players with 20k chips and more, except 1 player with 4k chips, the guy on my right had 96k chips. How is this balanced? At least dont put players into the blinds just after they went trough them. Its not fair for a short stack and far from beeing balanced.
Table balancing only balances tables in terms of number of players, not in terms of stack sizes. No site or even live game does balancing based on stack sizes, it's both too complex and very subjective, different people will prefer different stack size configurations in different stages of the tournament, and most intentional stack balances you could think of would have people crying unfair, so they just keep it completely random.
This can suck especially in 6 handed tourneys. I was 3rd out of about 32 players remaining and there were 4 of the top 6 on our table of 5 players. The chip lead was huge as well and the first time i went up against him he ran good and it put me off. I was well placed to cash and ended up going completely into my shell. Plenty of food for thought though.
That's not how table balancing works.
On Pokerstars, if there are say 25 players left in a 6 max, then the table that busts the player in 25th will move its players to the 4 other tables, whereas in a live setting, it'll likely be the highest numbered table remaining that moves its players (so if 5 tables left, table 5 will break). I'm not sure how exactly it works in Unibet but stack sizes are irrelevant.
