Help Me / Nicknames
« on: January 28, 2012, 10:23:53 AM »

I really only use the First Name and Last Name fields as I have many people just named Bill or Joe.  When I bust out a player in TD3, I just get the nickname or players first name in the busted player list and the hitman list.  I was able to make that change in 2.5, but I can't seem to find it under v3.  I did change my columns but no luck.

I have a big tourney tonight so I was hoping someone may know what I am overlooking. 

Thanks very much!!

Help Me / Formula Help

Hi Everyone -

I plan on changing our point awards for my next season and was looking for a little help.  I run a rebuy tournament and allow rebuys through round 3.  Current points are awarded for place based on number of people in a tournament - ie. 8 man tournament, 1st place gets 8, 2nd place gets 7 and so on..... I also give 1 point per hit even during the rebuy period.  My current formula is:


Here are the changes I wanted to make.  Since I pay 3 places I still want to award points base on the number of players but only give them to the people who monied based on a weight.

8 man tournament example paying 3 places - my money payouts are 50%, 30% & 20%.  With 8 points available I want to give 50% of the points to 1st, 30% of the points to 2nd and 20% of the points to 3rd.

Regarding in relation to the hit points, I only want to count the hits AFTER the rebuy period is over which.  I don't want to count a hit unless the player is permanently knocked out.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone,

I have been using for the last 4 years maintaining our tournaments and it has been awesome.  I don't know if you guys use the site or not but they recently release a new version of the site which takes away a lot of administrative control and gives it back to the user.  Most of my players just log in once in a while to check their point totals and respond to invitations.  The recent update has made this process way to complicated for a bunch of my players.......

I have some experience with as I am a member of another organization but their site doesn't allow for customized point calculations....

I'm looking for suggestions for a poker league management site with an invitation process and stats keeping.



Help Me / New Computer

Hi Corey -

I'm licensed for TD 2.x and I am getting a new laptop.  My current laptop which has TD currently installed is a lease and is going back.  (Company machine)
Aside from doing a backup/restore from the database tab, is there a preferred method of moving TD to a new computer?  Also, I wanted to make sure that I would still be in license compliance in doing this.


Help Me / Heads Up Assistance

Hi all.. I did some searching in this forum and really did not find a clear answer so i was hoping someone could help me.

I am running a 12 man heads-up tournament next weekend and wanted to do a round robin structure for the 1st level.  The best of 3 matches playing different people but each player would play 3 matches regardless of how many you won so you could be a spoiler for someone else.  After the 1st level is completed, then the rest of the matches would be single elimination.

I found a simple bracket format to use but I was hoping to run this all through TD.  I assume creating 6 tables of 2 but I am really unclear as to what to do for round robin part.  Do you just allow busted players to "rebuy" for their 2nd matchup?

Sorry if it's unclear but any suggestions on how to automate this would be greatly appreciated.



Help Me / Problem with names
« on: February 22, 2009, 03:49:04 PM »
Hi -
I have been using TD for quite sometime but recently ran into a snag with the latest update.  I have about 75 people in the database and I used the FIRST NAME and LAST NAME fields and never used the NICKNAME field.  I had trouble with that field in early versions.  Since I upgraded to 2.5.7, it seems to ignore the LAST NAME field.  When I tried to enter people into the tournament or when I shoose a player's name to sit at a table, the only column is NAME and it only has the players 1st name.  This a problem which I have a bunch of Bill's and a bunch of Tom's playing in the same tournament, which just happened to me.

Of course I upgraded about 5 hours before Friday's tournament and did not stumble on this until I was ready to start.. :D

I tried to add the LAST NAME column to the seat players dialog box but I could not find how to do that.

Any help would be appreciated.
