I've been playing some live trnys lately and the BB ante is the preferred structure around here. My question is: why is the ante the same when there's less than a full ring? I'm of the understanding that the antes are presented this way to keep lower denominations out of the game's circulation and make it easier/quicker for the dealer to calculate pots. I mean online if there are only 7 players seated at a 9-player table then only 7 x ante is the total, not the full ring total. Am I alone here or is there a reason for the BB ante to be the same as the BB regardless of the number of seated players? Thank you for your input CC'ers.
