Suggestions / Re: Button Ante

Hi

Is button ante an option in the software ?
If not, will in be incorporated ?

Thanks

You do not need any software modification to do that... Simply adjust your ANTE values in your rounds and you are good to go.

Optionally, you could change the label in your layout from "Ante" to "Button Ante".

Suggestions / Re: rebuy/add-on - original positions

In any re-buy tournament that i have done, the players have to buy in as soon as they are busted.  Only ever seen this done at a poker league, and then the re-entry didn't cost anything.
Indeed, I am running a poker league tournament - unfortunately we are mandated to follow the tournament format which stipulates the (free) rebuy/add-on after the first hour.

Those should be viewed as re-entries really (new player, new seat)

Others out there: if you have a rebuy tournament, do you force players to wait until a specific time (a break perhaps) to be able to rebuy?  If so, how do you handle seating at the rebuy?

In a "typical" rebuy tournament, players cannot miss a single hand. I.E. They rebuy on the spot or leave.

In a re-entry tournament, players can opt to re-enter right away or up until the registration period closes. Re-entry normally stuipulates that the player will change seat but in small tournament that can prove difficult to do.

... Regardless, this was fixed in 3.4.  I just tested to be sure.  What you should see now is attached dialog.  This would allow you to get out of the cycle of pop-up messages by disabling auto-save and fixing the issue.

You are right, sorry about that. The thing is, the last time I saw my client, he warned me about saving the file I was testing on so I assumed the problem still existed... Good to know that he listened to me I guess ;-)

That said, have you made any headway on adding "Templates" or "Master" files to TD?

As a reminder of what I wrote on September 09, 2015.

It would be great if we could create MASTER files in TD. Attempting to open a MASTER file opens a new Untitled/Unsaved file containing all the information included in the MASTER (Buy-in, addons, rebuys, rounds, layout, etc.). As a bonus, we should be prompt to name and save that file upon opening it and be able to pre-define a default naming scheme for our tournament files (Like: Date_League_Season)

Suggestions / Crash on Auto-Save
« on: February 22, 2018, 05:28:01 PM »
Hi Corey,

I believe you once said that you would think about adding "Templates" to TD where tournaments, with all their presets, could be open as a new untitled document and had to be given a name prior o be saved...

Personally, I can't hardly wait for that but in the meantime, would it be possible to address the application crash bug when TD attempts to auto-save a read-only document.

Currently, I am using read-only tournament files to ensure that my various tournament "profiles" do not get lost due to a missed step from the tournament director. (ie. Open the files, save it as a new name, start registering people...). The problem here is when the "save as..." part is skipped, TD will crash when attempting to auto-save the tournament. Could it be made so TD checks for that and simply warns me instead of crashing? This would save me a lot of grief...

TIA
Michel

Hi Corry,

that was me on another account (my client's)...

they are using version 3.4.2 and the "Layout properties" I was talking about is the popup window you get when you select "x properties" on a layout item where you get the property sets on the left and the attributes on the right (sorry that was the best name I thought of fro that window since it changes for every layout item). In any case, I can only see the top row of buttons under the "property sets" pane...

I will try your solution but I later realize that I could use the "down arrow" to force scroll the window's contents so all is good.

Strange that no vertical scroll bar appears though.

TIA

Help Me / Re: Final Table with 9 Players
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:59:52 PM »
Actually. if he wants to ONLY have his final table at 9 than he just can wait for his tournament to go down to 18 players (at which point TD will urge you to put 9 players on your last 2 tables) and make the empty seats unavailable, or delete them, on each table.

Help Me / Re: Two Displays
« on: April 27, 2017, 01:41:24 PM »
First of all, you need to configure your display monitors as you want them to work,

Right-click on your desktop and select Screen Resolusion. There you will be able (if your second screen is correctly connected to your PC/Laptop) to set the second display as ans EXTENSION of your current one or as a DUPLICATE/MIRROR. EXTENSION is your friend here. Please take note the actual resolution of your second screen

Once that is done, go to TD's Display Preferences and click on the "Move and Size Game Window to Extended Display" (You might have to entered the screen resolution values of your second screen noted in step 1)

Under the preferences tab, look for Display Preferences on the left side list, once there you will find the "Move and Size to Extended Display" on the bottom right of the  screen

Hi Corey,

of course you could, however if your purses are calculated based on the number of entries than your players have ground to feel being cheated out of money...

  • 49 entrants + 12 rebuys normally produce 5 purses.
  • 49 entrants + 12 re-entries would normally produce 7 purses.

When i run re-entry tournaments I have my SCREEN display the "number of entries" as (entries + rebuys) and set the purses accordingly.

Before that we simply created duplicate entry of our players as needed (i.e. Player Name and Player Name #2)

Re-entry - a player busts out of a tournament and purchases a new complete stack in accordance to Rule #7 of the TDA Rules (or similar when using custom rules)
This player acts a NEW player in the tournament (i.e. the number of players entered increases). Since he got up from the table he is normally reseated at another table (or have to wait for an available seat in case of alternates) and must abide by the NEW PLAYER TO THE TABLE rules of play (i.e. Should he bust on his BB an is reseated at the SAME SEAT the hand after, he cannot play the SB, he has to wait for the button to pass.)
Administration fees will be collected again for this player.

Re-buy - When a player is still in the tournament/game and has less than the starting stack (but still in the tournament) can purchase additional chips, or in the event of a cash game they can add to their stack provided it is within the minimum and maximum buy-in limits.
Actually the "less than the starting stack" rule is "local" in nature, some tournaments do require a player to lose all his/her chips in order to make a rebuy. A rebuying player cannot miss a hand unless specify by another house rule. Administration fees are normally waived on rebuys (i.e. in a 50$ + 10$ tournament, the rebuy is normally 50$). The number of entered player in the tournament does not increase when a player rebuys (This changes the way purses are calculated)

Rebuys and Re-Entries DO NOT apply to cash games.

Why would you speculate on what the OP meant. You stated a rule that applies to re-entries ONLY while answering a question about rebuys...

Normally the cost of a rebuy is less that the starting cost of the tournament because you should not charge the admin fee again... Not the case for re-entries.

Also if your tournament feature a Dealer Add-On, those could be applicable only to the start of the tournament (hence not for rebuys) in this case NO the Rebuy Stack would not be the same as the starting stack.

Honestly, use whatever works best for your group.  BUT, if you want an official take on it, Poker TDA Rules state it should be full stacks:

Rule 7: Alternates, players registering late, and re-entries will be sold full stacks, randomly seated at any position, and dealt in except between SB and button.

Re-entries and Rebuys are not the same thing...
