Suggestions / Re: Daylight Saving time effects tournament outcome stats.

As often as my group plays poker, I was kind of surprised this was the first time it happened to us.  I was equally surprised when I searched the forums and came up with nothing.

I already fixed it.  Just thought I'd bring it up.  :)

Suggestions / Daylight Saving time effects tournament outcome stats.
« on: November 04, 2012, 07:34:38 PM »
Just had a tournament last night where the final stats of the tournament were effected by daylight saving time change happening in the middle of the tournament.

3rd place busted out before the time change and 2nd place busted out after the time change.  Though because TD runs off the computer time, after the tournament was ended when 2rd place was busted out, the stats changed by themselves to make 2nd place 3rd place, and 3rd place 2nd place.

Help Me / Moving TD from one computer to another.
« on: January 29, 2011, 10:32:42 AM »
I currently hold all of my poker games in my basement/rec room.  I have a very old crap computer down there that I've used for running tournament software. We switched to TD this year and found out pretty quick the old computer is not suitable for TD.  It skips around and has a lot of lag.  So I'm going to put TD on my laptop instead.

We've already run a tournament on the crappy computer.  So my question is, how and what do I need to backup and move to the laptop so I don't lose the tournament we've already run?

General Discussion / Re: Looking for Points Formula

Converted to TD would be:

sqrt(((n * bc) * (bc / tc))) / (r + 1.0)




I've tried using this, and the resulting points are much lower then they should be.



Can you provide a concrete example?

No I can't.  It was human error.  Disregard my post. :)

Help Me / Point System Ideas?
« on: November 15, 2010, 07:58:36 PM »
I have poker tournaments at my house all the time.  We normally don't play league style.  However this is something we are going to try starting next year.

A little background information.  We normally have between 15 and 20 tournaments a year.  We could have anywhere between 8 and 25 people playing per game.

What we are trying to do is each game we have we will pull out a buy in and set it aside.  We will let this side pot grow through out the year.  At the end of the year, the last game we have will be a single table game with the top 9 players in points from the year being entered into this game for free, with the side pot up for grabs.  Our problem though is coming up with a points system.

We were thinking 1 point for a kill, -1 point for rebuy and addon.  Then placing points based on position.  In a 10 player tournament, 10 points to 1st, 9 to second, etc.

Just wondering what kind of structures are some of you using for your leagues?

Help Me / Forumla help...

We recently upgraded to TD from a more basic program pretty much for the points formula option that TD offers.  The other program we were using had no such ranking system.  It pretty much just ranked people off of dollars won which is garbage.  Anyway, the one reason we decided to use TD is what is giving us the most frustration.  :)

I don't even know where to begin to create the formula we will be using...

We want to have a formula where a player is given points based on what place they come in (with total number of players in tourney factored in), with a small boost for eliminating people, and small penalties for rebuying or adding on.

This is all new to us though.  We aren't familiar with the language.  We also aren't familiar with what standard points are given for such factors.  I understand we can just make up our own point values, though we'd kind of like to be in the norm for such factors. 

Is there a place were we can see sample formulas with the factors listed involved?
