Anyone know the music that ESPN used for the opening theme to the Final Table? I would LOVE to use it in my tournaments!

Help Me / H.O.R.S.E. Tournament Setup
« on: August 31, 2010, 11:59:37 AM »
I am trying to configure a layout (using the default layout) for a H.O.R.S.E. tournament. I have found no game name for Razz, and there isn't one for 5 Card Draw, which is my "E." game (I am not using 7 stud eights or better). Is there a way to display what the next game is as well as the current game being played if either one is Razz or 5 Card Draw? If I have to custom-make each level, I will have plenty of time to do that, as this tournament is a couple months away.

Also, is there a way to include the games on the blinds schedule page as well? I know it can be done using the standard game type and game name columns, but can it be custom-configured to put whatever game I want to in there such as Razz and 5 Card?

I'm sure there is a way to do this, but I haven't fiddled with anything new in 6 months, as my new job has me working weekends (which is about to change). I know someone out there has had to have played a HORSE tournament and has a way to make it work. Thanks!

General Discussion / Let it Ride Bonus
« on: December 07, 2009, 12:10:36 AM »
Does anyone know where I can find the (exact) layout for the game "Let it Ride Bonus"? I have searched the web for the exact layout consisting of the 3 card bonus circle and the $1 bonus bet and can't find even a picture of it anywhere. I know Shufflemaster has it registered/trademarked but you'd think there was a photo of one somewhere! I am a big fan of the game and I would love to have a replica of the layout on felt so I can build a tabletop for it. If not, I can draw it out by hand (with some help!). I would prefer to have a pre-made layout, but worse come to worse, I can do it myself. Can anyone help me out?

Help Me / points for playing and scoring formulas
« on: November 18, 2009, 07:12:33 PM »
I am changing my points formula to


Some of the numbers might change slightly

I also have a 25 point bounty in the "Prizes" tab.

Now my question is the Tournament Scoring part in the Stats Filter, I think I just need to input      Points     and in the Overall Scoring I should leave it as      average(scores)    correct? also, how does the 25 point bounty Prize figure into the tournament points portion of the filter? If it doesn't, that is fine.

General Discussion / My Poker League "Rule Book"
« on: November 05, 2009, 11:12:28 PM »
I have, over the past 2 seasons, always informed my players (who don't quite know tournament play) about certain things you can and/or cannot do during the course of a hand or tournament. Also, I have had players come to me saying that they might have caught others cheating (i.e. folding (talking softly) a hand and pushing it away from them a couple inches and getting back in the hand if the flop helps that player's hand when it is thought that no one is looking). Since this is "free" poker (We charge a $2.00 "trophy fund buy-in", as well as the same amount for any re-biys/add-ons), I can't have that going on anyway. Besides, it's pretty sad. Not to mention we are ALL amateurs, but I want to give my players the tournament experience and have fun, but try to weed out the cheaters (which I have, they (2 of them) will not be coming back next year). Therefore, I have come up with my official rulebook. Granted, it might not be exactly like casino rules, but for my league, I think it works out perfect. I have sent a copy to all my members, and am awaiting feedback. If anyone is interested I am posting the word doc on here. It is 18 pages long!

NOTE: when you go to DL the doc, click "YES" to view as a read-only file.

I'd love to hear everyone's feedback!

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / My championship screen
« on: October 28, 2009, 04:46:07 PM »
This is the screen that I am using next month in my No Limit Hold'em Championship game. The one for 7 card stud is very similar. My tournaments are small right now, so there are only 6 champions each. Next season I am looking to have more. My current record is 15. I average around 9 players.

Help Me / overall score formula
« on: September 28, 2009, 01:08:13 PM »
I am looking for a new Overall Score formuls. I currently use (1-exp(-average(scores))) * 100 for Overall Score. I use log((n + 1) / r) for Tournament Scoring formula. I do not use any fancy formula for points in tournaments. basic n-r+1 *50. When I pull up stats on the Stats tab and look at overall score with, say, 8 players, the first player out gets something like 11.111 and the winner gets 88.889 approximately.

What I am looking for is a way for that first place to receive 100.000 for first and, FOR EXAMPLE, 12.500 for 8th if there are 8 players. Basically 1st is 100, 2nd is x depending on number of players in a tournament. It seems like it is giving 1/8 th of 8 for 8 players and going up 11 whole numbers for each place,

8th =
7th =
6th =
5th =
4th =
3rd =
2nd =
1st =

I'd like it to go (using 8 players as an example)

8th = 12.500
7th = 25.000
6th = 37.500
5th = 50.000
4th = 62.500
3rd = 75.000
2nd = 87.500
1st = 100.000

If anyone knows how to make this work working down in a percentage format for any amount of players, it would be a great help!

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / 7 card stud round template
« on: January 22, 2009, 07:57:23 AM »
I am looking to have 7 card stud added to my monthly poker games. Does anyone have a rounds template that would do a 3 hour tournament with either $5,000 or $10,000 chips?

Help Me / Adding hits to players
« on: January 12, 2009, 01:46:21 PM »
I had 2 players split a pot while at the same time knocking out 2 others. John & Kevan split a pot with Kathy and Kenny being all in and losing. John got 1 hit and Kevan got 1 hit. I need to make it so that John gets another hit and Kevan gets another hit (I am not splitting the points in half or anything like that, each knocked out 2 players, although they split the pot, they still get credit for the hits). So do I just go back and reset the tournament, KO each player in order (I will wite down the order of elimination and who KO'ed that player), rebuy Kathy and Kenny and then KO them again, then finish out the tournament with the rest of the hits? Or is there an easier way?

Help Me / Bounties as set up in Prizes Tab
« on: December 04, 2008, 02:52:21 PM »
Is there a way to keep track of who has knocked out the most bounties if they are listed in the prizes tab? I have one bounty (the previous tournament winner) per event and i list them in the prizes tab and assign 50 points to the Hitman. Is there something somewhere in the program that lists how many bounties that a player has knocked out? Or does this only apply to bounty chips?

Help Me / Auto scrolling new screens
« on: October 21, 2008, 08:09:52 AM »
Hi guys, I am creating new screens for my main event game and posting season totals on them. problem is, i want to list the individual categories vertically and all the information won't fit on the screen and i have to shrink the font to where it will fit. problem with that is that no one can read them. (I have 20/13 vision (excellent) and can't read it either!). is there a way to auto-scroll a new screen that you create from scratch? or are the only auto-scrolled screens the rankings, movement, seating, and blinds screens? I have 2 and a half weeks to perfect it, so i am not in any rush (today that is). But any quick responses would be helpful so I am not in a rush come 2 weeks from now. Thanks guys

Help Me / KO formula
« on: September 03, 2008, 11:23:13 AM »
my current formula for determining points is (n-r+1)*100.   my points per hit is in the box above that and it is 25. How can i incorporate hits into my basic formula to reward players for multiple hits?

Help Me / overall scoring formula
« on: August 26, 2008, 10:30:08 AM »
i am looking for an overall scoriing formula for the most consistent player in my league. using points (50 for last, 100 for next out, etc), hits (are 25 points per), wins (100 pts), 2nd place (50 pts) , 3rd place (25 pts), and events played (50 points per). If anyone has an idea for how to define consistency using these stats, let me know. so far we have played in 8 events. I would like to make a certificate for "most consistent player" using a formula based on this. thanks
