Help Me / Ranking system
« on: September 26, 2007, 06:53:56 AM »
I'm running a small poker club in Stockholm, Sweden. I have been using TD for several years now for my tournaments, and it does a really great job. I have also been using Excel for keeping track of my players ranking point, and it would be nice to get rid of it.

I have a pretty complex ranking system, which not only ranks my players overall, but also in each different game (Hold'em, Omaha, Stud, etc.), in all around 10 different categories. In addition to this, each ranking list divided into three different time spans: all-time (all tournaments since we started in 1998, around 300 tournaments), current year, and a "rolling" ranking, stretching 18 months back.

Is there any way of doing this in TD?

My ranking points formula looks like this:

P=tournament prize pool
N=no of players

To get the total ranking points for each player, I then use another formula:

T=total number of tournaments for the player
S=the player's total ranking points (from above)

My next question then: Is it possible to use a formula like this in TD?

What I'm looking for is a way to let my players total points be affected by the number of tournaments they play. Simply using a total points method gives too much advantage to players who play many tourneys, and using an average points method gives sporadical players with good results an edge. Using a "best x of y tournaments" method tends to flatten the ranking too much.

Any input on this is greatly appreciated.

Help Me / Stats/points question
« on: August 15, 2006, 05:08:39 AM »
I have just started using TD2 (looks really great!), and have a few questions regarding stats and player points.

1. I am currently trying to work out a player ranking system where points recently earned are weighted heavier than old tournament results. Is there any way of doing this automatically in TD2?

2. Is it possible to set a required minimum number of tournaments for a player to be ranked? (To resolve issues of players with only one or two tournaments played, resulting in a very high average score?

3. In the past, I have used a points system similar to this:

Ranking points per player and tournament = p*sqrt(m/n)

Weighted sum = 1/sqrt(t) * SUM(ranking points per player and tournament)

p - rank in tournament, 1 point for last place, first place is the same as number of players
m - total prize money in tournament
n - number of players
t - number of tournaments for this player

Any way of doing something similar in TD2?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
