I just added a "rule" that late players that have notified me that they are still coming will have their seat selected and blinds will be posted on their behalf until they arrive and they have up to the end of the 2nd round to arrive or their chips will be removed from play. Nothing new, but what do you do if you have say 8 players in attendence come game time but you expect 4 more to be arriving within the late period? Do you play on a single table until the players arrive or do you split up into 2 tables to accommodate the total 12 players (including the 4 expected late arrivals)? if you play on a single table, how do you blind off 4 chipstacks? Basically, what's the best way to handle this situation?
