Help Me / Help with points
« on: November 10, 2015, 01:16:24 PM »
Not sure if there is a quick fix (easy way) of doing this.

Been running my league for a few years now, not a lot as changed, but last year i changed it slightly but it made it very hard at the end.

In the league you points for where you finish on the night, points for knocking a player out, extra points if you knock the previous months winner out'
points for playing and points turning up early.
All the points are set up in the different fields it is not a formula.

We play 12 games, with the best 10 results counting, all this is ok,
What I am doing now is the points for playing and the points for turning up early count for all the 12 games.

What I had to do last year was just before the last game I had to go through every players and adjust thier best score by the points they had
for playing more than the 10.
Obviously there where some players had played 10 some 11 and some all 12.

Is there an easy way to do this.

Help would be great.

Help Me / Help with sounds
« on: January 28, 2012, 06:41:31 AM »
I am trying to trigger sounds.

I have several sound files that play when a player is busted out.

I have tried to set up a trigger for bust out on the bubble.

I have tried all different ways but can not get it to work.

Any idea's ?.


Suggestions / Pics

Not a big deal.

Was at a home and could not take my lap top.

So a blinds counter was downloaded for the ipad (app).
When setting up it gave the option to add a pic of the player when adding the name.

Just wandered if it would be a big job.

General Discussion / This is class.

This guy was moaning about stars being fixed, he got bad beat after bad beat, stayed away for a while
and when he went back won 2 tournys running.
He then sent poker stars an email asking what is going on. This is the reply that he got.

"Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your email. As you were regularly donking off large amounts of dough on our site we kept your "luck factor" at 10 (the range is 1:100), however when a good customer leaves we raise their luck factor so that when they come back they're more likely to stay with us. Since you were away for so long your luck factor had risen to 100 (hence your win in July). Usually after a big win, our Senior Luck Factor Co-ordinator will reduce a players luck factor down to around 5, however as he was on long term sick this wasn't done and you inadvertantly fluked another big win in November. Unfortunately (for you) your luck factor has now been downgraded to 5 until you donate enough cash for it to go up. If you wish your luck factor to be raised again, you will need to send an email to our Luck Factor Designation Team, who will assess it on it's individual merits (it may help your case if you specify at least 10 bad beats, and also threaten to tell all your mates that pokerstars is rigged).

Good luck at the tables!"

Help Me / Seating
« on: November 26, 2011, 10:01:43 AM »
It is probably something that I am doing, it usualy is.

I only run small home games, I had my seating page to order by name, some players wanted it by table/seat.
I tried to set that up this morning on a 10 seater, but it shows

Table 1 seat 1
Table 1 seat 10
Table 1 seat 2
Table 1 seat 3
Table 1 seat 4
Table 1 seat 5
Table 1 seat 6
Table 1 seat 7
Table 1 seat 8
Table 1 seat 9

How can I get the 10 to be after 9 ?.

Help Me / Not sure about this
« on: June 05, 2011, 12:58:45 PM »
Not sure about this.

My tourney is set up to do the following.

Start tourney with countdown, show seating.
When countdown reaches zero, change to show main screen.
When final table, pause clock and show seating.
I then have to set clock going and change screen to main screen.

All this I am happy with.

If I set up a tourney, save away, re load and set the count down, all works fine.
If I re load the tourney make changes then set the count down.
I have to reset my screen to the seating then at the start set the screen to main screen
then at final table set it to show seating then back to main screen.

Just wandering if this is normal.
I thought once you set the countdown or are ready to run then the set screens would work as set.

I am on 2.6 B5

Not a big prob, I just make sure that if I change anything I save then re load.

Beta Testing / Rounds
« on: May 29, 2011, 03:01:37 AM »
It is not often that I change rounds now, prob only use 3 and have templates for them.

Today I had to set one up for a deep stack.

I started off needing to change the time of the first few rounds.
When I go to edit the round, change the time then OK it nothing happens.
I tries different levels no luck, tried bring other templates on and changing then no luck.
After a while I noticed if I change the time OK it, move from the rounds tab then back
it has worked, should it not refresh what you input when you OK it ?.

Having not used this for a while not sure how it should behave.

Beta Testing / layout
« on: April 30, 2011, 12:06:29 PM »
How do you save a tourney with the sounds, events and layout.

When I save then reopen the layout reverts back to the default.

Sure I read somewhere on here that I could save my layout out the default but I use more than 1 layout.

Help Me / might be possiblke, might not,
« on: April 11, 2011, 12:19:07 PM »
Not sure if this is possible, but here goes anyway.

Our season has just finished, we will son be starting a new one.

Last season we played 12 games and used best 10 results out of 12, this suits some but others don't like it.
So we are discussing what to this season, I thought keep both parties happy with best 11 from 12.
Then players say, 10 from 12 or 11 from 12 takes away a lot of the excitement in the last game.
Because of the points system we use it is impossible to work out what players might need to do to win the league.

So is it possible to have a formula that will use best 10 from 11 then make the last game of the season count whatever
players have done previously.
Even if a player did not turn up it would count the last game.


General Discussion / Home Games (not TD related)
« on: October 01, 2010, 12:06:36 PM »
Not sure how you all go on in the USA, I have to go through all this now.
Bear in mind the most that I can have playing at my place is 18.

Me and Mrs mac are banned from the G casino, long storey but there it is.
As part of there procedure they complained about the Garage to the gambling commission.
I have no problem with this as I have said before.

So today I had a visit.

Actually not from the gambling commission but some guy from the council and a police officer with a knowledge of the gambling law.
They are to report back to the gambling commission.

First thing they said they just want to see what it was all about, no problem.

Showed them the Garage, it was set up for my 10 seater tomorrow.
The first thing they was interested in was the fruit machine (play money), I told them it was only for fun, they accepted this but
stated it's only a matter of pressing a button and it's real money (they are correct).
So we discussed several ways for me to run it on real money legally, they said licence the house as a pub and pay the
fee and you have no problem with the poker either, wrong the poker would then have a weekly limit.
I told them the machine only takes room up so it will be on eBay next week.

I was then asked about the rake I take (knew this might be a problem), I said this is to cover my expense of tea,coffee, supper and other
They said it is illegal to charge this, I told them no problem I will stop charging it but I know the players are still going to pay it.
To that he shrugged his shoulders.
The biggest problem was how it was all laid out on my web site, (it states the rake on here).
No problem I will change the web site to suit no rake.
I was then asked how much we play for, I said that was irrelevant we could play for any stake we wanted but I told him.

One of them said it's got a bit bigger than a home game here, I said no it's a home game once a week with friends and acquaintances.
They said they had not come to charge me with any offences but I must bear in mind that a few people in the London area have
had some big fines for doing what I am doing.
I have not heard of any home games being busted.

Any at the end I said OK I will lose the fruit machine, change the web site and stop the rake, will that be OK.
They did not really answer all they said was they would report back to the gambling commission.

So my game tomorrow is still on.

I will implement the three changes then see what happens next.

Help Me / 3 bet, 4 bet
« on: September 06, 2010, 01:28:20 PM »
I know its nothing to do with TD, but I would like to know the answer

3 bet and 4 bet are used in limit poker, I understand that but it is used in no limit.

So if the term 3 bet and 4 bet are used in no limit what exactly does it mean ?
