Suggestions / Re: Re-Entry / Rebuy with new seat

This is far more involved than I was concerned with. My concern is that a rebuy doesn't add to the number of participants in a tourney while a re-entry does and TD3 doesn't handle that. This skews the payouts if they are based upon the number of players. Stats and rakes notwithstanding, it's an issue if you want to run a re-entry tournament.

I, too, was going to inquire about including re-entries to TD3 so figured I'd check out the forum first. Glad I did.

Based on the responses here, I have been playing with the re-buy feature to emulate re-entries but the main issue is that the number of players is not incremented up as should happen if a busted-out player buys in as a new entry again. If a player re-buys, he is essentially the same player and the chips in play and prize pool increases but a re-entry is a completely new player and should be treated as such. Because you cannot add a player who has already played from the database, I guess the only way to do it is to remove the re-entering players completely from the tournament, enter new players (ie. Ghost 1, Ghost 2, etc), bust out the ghost players immediately and then buy in the re-entering players and seat them. It's a time consuming method but can be done.

Is there any way to use the code for rebuys and have a trigger called "Re-entry" that only increases the total number of players with that setting on and not when just using re-buys? Just a thought.
