Title: Help with formula
Post by: Proffanno on February 24, 2016, 06:42:45 AM
(((N*BC)+(NR*RC)+(NA*AC))/N) * SQRT(N/R)

Hello

Im using a variation of this formula above in my tournaments and was wondering if its possible to put like a "cut" in the points. Lets say, 1-27 place receive the points given by the formula and 28-29-30-31.... is given the points of the 28 place.

Ex.
What i have
1- 150
2- 120
3- 100
4- 85
5- 75
6-70

What i want
1- 150
2- 120
3-100
4- 85  <--- When i "say" to the formula this is the cut, everybody down receive the same points as this place
5-85
6-85


Sorry my english
Thank you

How is your "cut" defined?

Is it a hard number of a value based on attendance?

Im thinking in 18 players for the cut.

We have between 40 and 50 players every week, so controling who bustout, buyin and rebuy is a little too much for one person in the begining. When the tables break i can put a dealer in charge of the bustouts.

Thank you
