posting blinds when someone gets knocked out

I have holding poker tournaments at my house for awhile.in this tournament blind could not be skipped. If someone got knocked out there is either a dead blind or dead button. We get into arguments everytime we play on which way is right. They say that if someone gets knocked out that the next person post the blinds. Can someone help me out?

Thanks

both of you are correct for cash play actually/ depending on where you play, some casinos for example the IP in biloxi,ms do not reconize a such thing as a "dead small blind" they "forward" action and both players pay big blind~!!! not sure on tourney play but i run a cash game @ my house and have for almost 6 yrs now, i juts have a deadsmall if need be. hope that was helpful

Always move the button forward to a player is how I was taught. Make the small pay on the button if he has to....

Here's how I handle it. From my written House Rules ver 31d:

106. If a player is eliminated, the blind positions will be determined using the using the dead button method. With two players the SB is always on the button and the other player is the BB.

When the action is at least 4 handed:

1. When the small blind busts
- the UTG becomes the big blind
- the big blind becomes the small blind
- the button stays the button

2. When the big blind busts
- the UTG becomes the big blind
- the small blind becomes the button
- there is no small blind posted
- the button stays in the same spot for the next hand when blinds return to normal structure

When the action is 3 handed:

1. When the button busts
- the big blind becomes the small blind and gets the button
- the small blind becomes the big blind

2. When the small blind busts
- the big blind becomes the small blind and gets the button
- the button becomes the big blind

3. When the big blind busts
- the small blind stays the small blind and gets the button
- the button becomes the big blind

When both blinds bust (Greater than 4 players):

The first hand
- the UTG becomes the big blind
- the button stays the button
- there is no small blind posted

The next hand
- the current UTG becomes the big blind
- the current big blind (who was the UTG when the blinds busted) becomes the small blind
- the button stays the button until the next hand

When both blinds bust when the action is 4 handed:

- the UTG becomes the big blind
- the button stays the button and becomes the small blind

I give every player a copy of the rules electronicly and have hard copies available for anyone to read. Never a complaint.

just play with a dead button... and never.... and i mean never allow anyone to skip the big blind then the issue would be fixed.
