Tracking Players in Side Pots and Last Longer
« on: March 22, 2018, 06:34:08 PM »

I am holding a tournament that includes both rebuys and add-ons, as well as includes the option of entering a Last Man Standing side-pot.  I have structured the tournament with 2 different buy-in profiles to facilitate the last-man, adding the optional $20 to the buy-in and taking it off as rake.  The layout tallies the Last Man pot using <totalRake> and I can tally the number of players that entered the side pot with <buyins profileName="Buy-in + Last Longer">, but it seems to leave me short trying to:

  • track who bought in with that specific buy-in profile
  • track who is left that bought in using that specific profile

Any help would be appreciated

Thx

I can't think of any way to do that with what is implemented today.  What kind of feature would you like to see?

Thanks for your reply Cory!

I think you would be able to achieve it by adding buy-in profile (and add-on and rebuy profile) as an attribute of <playerNames>.  That would do the trick.  That way I could list player names on a page filtered by the players that bought in with that profile and who have yet to bust out.  It is a non-issue if I am holding a freezeout where I can specify by add-on or rebuy since one of them would be repurposed as the Last Man pot.  It only arises when there are legit rebuys and add-ons.  I can track them thru the 'Players' page with the 'rake' column, but want to be able to do it on a tournament page.

Cheers

Indeed side pots tracking as a feature has been discussed before, and would likely need a lot more than this to be a fully vetted feature.  This is just a minor change to a layout token that could be easily implemented.

Not to minimize any previous discussions.  It's just in light of the work I need to do to port the application, this is a minor change.
