Help Me / token or calculation display
« on: May 21, 2006, 11:00:24 AM »
heres my problem - we are adding a new prize for a player that makes a specific number of hits during a tournament
if we have 20 players I want to award a cash prize for making 10 hits
how can I display this total needed on the layout?

Suggestions / bounty chips or hits change

I see this same thing has happened to others and hopefully could be a minor fix/change.
three players in, 2 have same hand and chop pot, third is busted out
bounty chip cant be split, neither can hit
can you make it possible to select 2 or more players as hitmen, and splitting points and/or prize, might be as simple as making hit a .3 or .5, currently the test of a points system doesn't allow fraction of a hit or bounty.
this doesn't happen often, but as in my case it happened in the 3rd of 10 tourney's and had to be hand edited 7 times, ugh!

Help Me / buttons help

your template with buttons has quite a few for samples, but as always more is nicer, I found a couple by rewording or respelling the help keys. Could you list all the buttons possible? I'm assuming they are more or less the hot keys but some must have different 'format' or only work on certain screens.

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / tournament layouts

heres my tourney file layouts and 3 pretourney layouts
youll notice the logo and ads at bottom panels, and results in pretourney3
My son is running leagues here and have to wait till they restart as the point system has to change, MNPL complained we were assigning 10 pts to all not 'in the money' like they do, so we have to stop under threat of lawsuit, have changed points system to fall smack in middle of MNPL and poker worlds points with changes in math that seem to make a more fair system.
If anyone would like a similar logo or add banner, just yell, I'll do them for a reasonable $20 each in most formats you want.

Suggestions / point formulas
« on: March 03, 2006, 01:40:02 PM »
Here are some point formulas:
MN poker League : pe = players entered, a3 = player rank, this gives points to top 30%, everyone else gets 10
until an if statment is implemented the players all get points

Poker stars: pe = players entered, a3 = player rank, buyin1 = buyin price
ROUND(10*(SQRT(pe)/SQRT(A3)) * (1+LOG(byin1+0.25)),0)

Pokerworld:pe = players entered, a3 = player rank, buyin2 = buyin price

TO COMPARE these formulas I used 19 players (random number) and adjusted buyins until 1st place was close or identical, at $39 poker stars results are = to MNPL, as players increase the buyin increases and results are IDENTICAL
Poker world needed a 7200 buyin to make 1st place equal, the rest are highly weight to top, and very few points for lower 2/3

as to which is best? they all have their respective advantages, and disadvantages , try the formulaes on a spread sheet and decide for your self. ???
