**Help Me / Point calculation seems... off.**

« **on:**February 17, 2017, 07:22:16 PM »

We have been running, trusting the output from the 'Summary'and export functions. But when I check them manually, there is quite a discrepancy. It is quite possible that I am missing something.

For example, our last tournament had 15 players. Using the following formula,

From the Summary for the top 5 players, I get the following points:

None of these players re-bought, nor do we allow add-ons. The buy in is $50 with a $10 bounty.

These numbers obviously don't match up. Can I get a pointer or two... so I can understand where my issue(s) is/are??

For example, our last tournament had 15 players. Using the following formula,

Code: [Select]

`(sqrt(n*bc*bc/tc)/sqrt(r+nr))+(2*nh)`

n = number of players

bc = buyin cost

r = rank (place)

nr = number of rebuys

tc = total cost

nh = number of hits (bounties)

From the Summary for the top 5 players, I get the following points:

Code: [Select]

`Brandon L 50.00 `

Adam 22.68

Cap'n (ret.) 19.43

Buddy 25.50

Slick 12.18

None of these players re-bought, nor do we allow add-ons. The buy in is $50 with a $10 bounty.

Code: [Select]

` Brandon Adam Cap’n Buddy Slick`

n 15 15 15 15 15

bc 50 50 50 50 50

r 1 2 3 4 5

nr 0 0 0 0 0

tc 60 60 60 60 60

nh 6 1 1 3 0

Points 37.00 19.68 16.43 18.50 11.18

These numbers obviously don't match up. Can I get a pointer or two... so I can understand where my issue(s) is/are??
