General Discussion / Re: Automatically seating players
« on: August 16, 2015, 02:36:09 PM »
Seating players randomly (all at once), should result in compressed tables.  So I assume you're seating players as they buy in, which truly does seat in completely random locations.  In that case, you'll have to press the Compress Seating button yourself - there's no way to do it automatically.  If there were, when would it happen?

I still wish there was an option for auto seating during buy-in to seat each player at the next open seat at each table, e.g. buy-in 1 gets table 1, seat 1. Buy-in 2 gets table 2, seat 1. Buy-in three gets table 3, seat 1. Buy in 4 gets table 1, seat 2, etc. This keeps tables balanced so that in say a 30 person tournament you can start on time with balanced tables and as those 4-5 late folks that show up will continue to get seated in balanced tables. Right now I have to do that manually since TD wants to put everyone at table 1 as they buy in.

Update: This is my formula

((1.00 - (r / (n + 1.00))) * 100.00 + 4.00) + (nh*2.00) - (nr*3.00) - (na*1.00)

As you can see from the summary, 1st place got 118.15 points (should've had 109) and 2nd got 130.31 (should've had 105). I'm worried that something is going really wrong here. When I run the test formula it works as it should but my actual points are off.

Any help is appreciated!

I'm writing this post away from my copy of TD so bear with me.

I have a formula that I've been using for 4 years. It gives points based on finishing position taking into account the number of players in the tourney. Rebuys are -3 points, hits are +2 points and addons are -1 point. I had a tournament where first and second place were equal in all areas except 2nd place had 4 more knockouts than first (so that's 8 points more). However, for some reason he ended up with 12 more points than first place.

Check out the summary here: http://www.thepokerclubscv.com/summary/2014/2014-02.html

I have no idea what could have caused this. I've never had this issue before. Obviously the point total is wrong. How can I fix it? This is important because I keep a running total and have a free roll tourney at the end of the year. Sometimes less than 1 point separates who gets to play and who doesn't.

General Discussion / All In raise
« on: November 06, 2008, 05:23:57 PM »
For some reason this has come up like three times in the last couple games.  Here's the scenario:

Player A bets $20.
Player B goes all-in for $30.
Player C wants to raise...can he or must he only call $30?  I say he can raise what ever he wants as long as it is at least $40 (since the $30 all-in was an incomplete bet).  Lately though there are those who say player C can not raise and can only call or fold. 

I do know that had Player C only called $30 then Player A can not reraise.

Or is there a way to subtract 6 points for if they rebuy but keep them > 0?

if(rank < 5, n + 6 - 2 * rank, n - rank + 1)

You can't incorporate the second one.  There's no formula variable indicating a player's rank after their first bust-out.


Thanks Corey.

What about something along the lines that says if they've re-bought subtract the number of points they receive in the place they finish?  So if they go out first, rebuy and finish 1st, it subtracts 12 points, if they finish 2nd it subtracts 10 points etc.?

Help Me / Another points issue, set points to zero on rebuy
« on: May 05, 2008, 04:11:39 PM »
Hello all.

I'm running a tournament with 8 players.  I have two questions.

1) I want the top 4 players to receive extra points for finishing.  I was able to create a formula that works, but it seems like there is a better way to do it.  See below.

2) If a player rebuys I want their points for that game to reflect the place they went out before the rebuy.  Even if they win I only want them to receive points for what happened before the rebuy.  However, I still want to know who won each tourney.

Current Formula:

if(rank =1, n-r+5) + if(rank =2, n-r+4) + if(rank =3, n-r+3) +  if(rank =4, n-r+2) + if(rank >4, n-r+1)

I am thinking it in part has to do with your rebuys.

You have it computed such that you subtract 3 times the "total number of rebuys for the tourney" (tnr) rather than the number of rebuys for that individual (nr). 

Scratch that.  I forgot to save after changing those values to zero.  That did it.  Thanks!

Well, that kinda worked.  Now my first place guy has 111.24 instead of 103.24.  Where are the extra 8 points coming from?  I do have Points for buy-in set to 4 and points for hit set to 1 under the game tab, but changing those to 0 does not affect the stats.

Help Me / SOLVED - Another Points Issue
« on: September 17, 2007, 10:52:51 PM »
So I've been using TD for two seasons and find myself having an issue with my point formula in my new season.  Here it is:

(((1 - (r / (n + 1))) * 100 + 4) + nh - (tnr*3)

Basically, we have 24 players usually.  The formula above will give 1st 100 points if no rebuys and no hits.  When I test I get:

1st, 100.00
2nd, 96.00
3rd, 92.00
4th, 88.00
5th, 84.00
6th, 80.00
7th, 76.00
8th, 72.00
9th, 68.00
10th, 64.00
11th, 60.00
12th, 56.00
13th, 52.00
14th, 48.00
15th, 44.00
16th, 40.00
17th, 36.00
18th, 32.00
19th, 28.00
20th, 24.00
21st, 20.00
22nd, 16.00
23rd, 12.00
24th, 8.00

Problem is, after our first tournament, the first place player (no rebuys, 4 hits, should have 104 points) has 78.24 points.

2nd (no rebuys, 5 hits) has 75.48 points.

Last place (no rebuys, no hits) has -20.24?!?!


I'm using the most recent TD.  What am I doing wrong?  Can I fix what's already been done for the first tourney?

T.I.A. for any help!

Help Me / How to update player points after tourney is finished
« on: October 26, 2006, 09:54:21 PM »
I have a problem.  I started a new season and during the first game I marked that one player rebought when he did not, and the other guy who did rebuy I did not mark.  I need to go and and adjust their point totalls but I can't see how to do so.

TIA for any help so I don't have to manually update their point totals after every game.
