Smaller one looks like an imitation gasser, you can fit more of them around a table, lean forward better too.

Other ones look comfy too, can't fit as many around a table, arm rests are nice

I’d like the smaller ones.

(1) I like chairs that are comfortable enough but don’t make me want to fall asleep.

(2) I hate feeling like I’m playing chair bumper cars so smaller and without wheels are for me.

(3) I hate chairs that recline. Even if I lock mine, when others start bouncing like they’re in rocking chairs it makes me want to break their kneecaps.

  • I dislike chairs with armrests at the poker table. People scoot forward, or push a chair in, and it bangs the table, disrupting stacks.
  • I don't need an armrest on a chair. That's why the rail is padded.
  • Armrests take up more space.
  • Office chairs are adjustable. So everyone adjusts it to their "perfect" height/angle. Then with a seating change (particularly MTT tournaments) everyone has to readjust their chair for the next minute. It looks like a game of Whack-a-Mole. The Gasser imitation is preset to a height that nearly everyone is comfortable with.
  • Office chairs allow for fidgety movement. Rocking, twisting, rolling back and forth. This in turn results in bumping the table, bumping your neighbor, and wearing out a small section of your floor.
To me, it's a no-brainer.
