I found a fix for Full Tilt automatically closing the table when you're knocked out of a tournament.
WARNING: This requires some registry editing. If you follow my directions you should be fine, but if you go in there and accidentally delete something, it could be catastrophic.
Make sure Full Tilt is not running.
You might want to create a restore point before tampering with the registry (Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore... then create a restore point).
1) Click Start then Run.
2) In the Open window, type in the following, then click OK: REGEDIT
3) Expand "HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
4) Expand "Software"
5) Expand "Full Tilt Poker"
6) Click the "Windows" folder.
In the right column, look at the "CloseCompleted" value. 1 means enabled, and 0 means disabled. So basically, we want to change it from a 1 to a 0.
7) Double-click the "CloseCompleted" value on the right.
8) Replace the 1 with a 0.
9) Click OK, close the registry editor, and you're done!
If you're afraid to edit the registry, I'm attaching the registry value in a ZIP file. You can open the ZIP file and double-click the value to have it make the proper change to your registry. However, you should *not* get in the habit of importing registry values from people you meet on the Internet.

re: Poker & Fix: Full Tilt auto-closing table when KO'd
The problem occurs when you check the "don't ask anymore" option. If you do that (and I evidently did, though I don't remember doing it) you're stuck as it won't let you choose anymore.
Basically, checking that box puts a "1" for the key value. I haven't been able to find the option in the Full Tilt software to allow you to choose to close the table once you've checked that box. If you know where it is, please let me know.
