Is it possible to change around seating order in a way that those two that has to sit on same table in all three games would only once be in predator/prey relations?

Because right now the three games goes like this:
game 1: A is prey of B
game 2: B is prey of A
game 3: A is grand prey of B

I think it would be better as:
game 1: A is prey of B
game 2: B is grand prey of A
game 3: A is grand prey of B

...if possible.

It's probably not possible.

This is current optimal seating for 10 player, players 8 and 9 are in same table in all three games.

Round 1
1,2,3,4,5
6,7,8,9,10
Round 2
10,1,9,8,2
5,6,4,3,7
Round 3
4,7,10,3,1
9,2,5,8,6

If on round 2 players 1 and 9 would change places, would it break it?

Just check by yourself: 9 and 10 would be prey/predator on table 1, and predator/prey on table 2.

Yes. But the question is, is it better or worse than what we have now? 8 and 9 being predator/prey on first round, then prey/predator on second, same what 9 and 10 would be, and then predator/grand prey on third round. 8 and 9 would still play three games in same table, but only once next to each other. 9 and 10 would play twice next to each other but they don't share table three times.

Seatings are being reevaluated as rule 2 was considered less important than rules 3 and 8.
The following seatings have already been updated:
12, 13, 14, 15, 17.
