A table captain is a player in the game that has chosen to be the head of the table. As a table captain they are taking on many responsibilities.
1) All players are to deal on their button, but as a courtesy the table captians are available to the table to deal for those players that do not choose to deal themselves. As such they always start in seat 10, but so as to not give them any advantage they always start the tournament in the position after the big blind (under the gun).
2) Table captains are the head of the table and as such act as the floor for table disputes. If you disagree with a table ruling you can call the club floor to also help settle disputes.
