Hello,
I'm trying out this software and it seems good so far. I am having some trouble with the formulas in order to calculate points for my players.
What I need it to do is:
Usual number of players vary between 22 to a max of 27.
The points I'd like to provide will start at a scale of 14 pts down to 1 point for the last spot (notice my scale breaks down between a point and a half point), multiplied by the amount of players plus extra points for the 4 top players that finish in the money (40 pts for the 1st place, 30 pts for 2nd, 20 for 3rd and 20 pts for 4th. See below for an example:
27 men tourney
1st  14 pts x 27 + 40 = 418
2nd  13.5 pts x 27 + 30 = 394.5
3rd  13 pts x 27 + 20 = 371
4th  12.5 pts x 27 + 10 = 347.5
5th  12 pts x 27 = 324
6th  11.5 pts x 27 = 310.5
7th  11 pts x 27 = 297
.
.
.
.
25th  2 pts x 27 = 54
26th  1.5 pts x 27 = 40.5
27th  1 pts x 27 = 27
Please help me with a simple formula. I'm also going to deduct points for rebuys and addon's. Extra points will be given for knockouts/hits.
Thanks!
Ace
