Our league is in it's 6th season. 40 members. weekly game. three / ten person tables. This formula has proven to be so good. We've tried others but this is bulletproof.


The outcome is that  anyone who re-buys or adds-on gets point for exactly double their ranking (ie. 1st place gets 2nd place points, 4th place gets 8th place points.) Unless that player does multiple re-buys or add-ons, then the penalty continues. The points curve is not linear. For instance:

This formula has proven to (from a points perspective) benefit solid players and penalize those who re-buy and add-on every week. Us solid players love the gamblers sweetening the pot every week.

$20 membership fee per year covers chips, cards, tables. No Rake. No profit.

Tourney Overview:
-$20 buy-in, re-buy or add-on gets you $10,000 in chips.
-15 minute blinds with BB of 50, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, 1000, 1,200, 1,600, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 6,000, 8,000, 10,000, 12,000, 16,000, 20,000
-Tourney lasts between 4 1/2 and 6 hours. Our season-ending 'Tournament of Champions' is 9 players, same levels but 30 minute blinds. It's an 8-hour game  
-We allow buy-ins and re-buys for the first hour of play, before the first break. First season, we didn't allow re-buys which made an early bad beat a real bummer. Second season we implimented add-ons.
-Add-ons are allowed during the first break to anyone still holding chips. This was done to prevent chip dumping during the last few hands before break.
-Players RSVP via a web portal. Anyone who shows up late has to wait for the current level to end before buying in. If tables are full, sucks to be them.
-During a normal season, we play 15-19 games of which each player's top 9 scores are counted. That formulas look like this:

Overall Score 1 (renamed "Top 9 Games (ToC)"):     sum(top(9, scores))

Overall Score 2 (renamed "Lowest Game in Top 8") :   If(count(scores)>8,(Sum(bottom([count(scores) - 8],scores))-Sum(bottom([count(scores) - 9],scores))),0)

Overall Score 3: renamed "Top 8 Games"):       sum(top(2,scores))

As the season wraps up, posting stats with these columns showing really helps players with strategy.

Like most leagues, we started out by tracking everything with spreadsheets. When managing stats became more difficult, we went to so all of those tournament records are in csv format. After a couple of seasons with that, we upgraded to Tournament Director. Now we've developed our own website using Joomla. We use the LethalMedia component for the connection between TD and our website and it works beautifully.
Here is the challenge. In order to have true stats for all members, we would like to import old .csv tourney records to the website without having to run a mock tournament in TD for each (40 tournaments) and export to LethalMedia just to get the xml file formatted properly. I know this is a long shot but, is anyone else doing this?
