being moved from tables


i was play a PokerStars tournament, in the first hour i was moved FIVE times to different tables, i not think this is fair, takes time you know how people at table play and then poof they move you? and how they decide where put you? zap you suddenly with the 3 chip leaders - how fair is that - how they determine where put you?

    The reason you have a greater chance of getting moved to tables with large stacks is that they knocked out 1 or more players to become large stacks. So that table ends up with multiple empty seats, and then people from full tables get moved. Movement early in online tournaments happens frequently also because as people register new tables are opened and existing players get moved to provide enough players at the new table.

    Unfortunately, just some random bad luck that you got moved so many times for this specific tournament. I've had similar things happen.
