Thanks everyone for the assistance. Quick question - when breaking down of two tables to the final, which is the preferred method of seating the final table? 1) Allowing the players at table 1 keep their seats and draw for the players moving from table 2 2)Drawing for seating of all 8 players to the table? Also, how is the dealer button assigned at table combining? In the past I have done method 2 above and a draw for the button (high card).
