You are assuming they are using an algorithm. Based on my recent experience, I am betting whatever method they are using is favoring the large ticket sellers. Recent actions they have taken strongly suggest they are removing tools from small sellers and making them only available to large quantity sellers. Many sellers such as myself who are season ticket holders of our favored teams but need to sell a couple of tickets a year when we can't attend are finding it extremely difficult to sell our tickets thru StubHub without offering at rock bottom prices due to these practices.

That is why I and many other small sellers are leaving StubHub. Let the big boys fight it out among themselves. I for one will attempt to find a site which is neutral to the number of tickets you sell each year/month/week or whatever.
