Help Me / Im trying to run a Doubles tournament.
« on: February 11, 2012, 06:55:17 AM »
I run a small league and we were thinking about doing a doubles tourney, many of us that play are couples and the non-couples can easily find a partner.
I have run into a few small problems, such as rankings, seating, points etc.

1. I tried running a sim game, 12 players (6 teams) with the idea that once the head-up was completed that I would simply use the chop function to split points/cash the way I wanted and to award 1st place to both winners and 2nd to both runners-up. When using the chop function, I found that if I awarded two 1st places, the next place I could award was third. My players are very funny about their stats and don't want to see a third place where a second should be.

During the typing of this I solved most of my problems so now number 1 is my only concern.

It would seem that if I run two SEPARATE games (one with the first half of each team, one with the second) I could get the same end results for the stats (i.e. proper 1st,2nd,3rd etc) but is there any way to avoid this? Is there something in the chop panel I am missing or a setting in the preferences I do not know about?

Help Me / Is there an easier way to do this?

Attached is a copy of my points scale for the league I run. It's a small league in comparison to many but we're just a bunch of friends who all love the game. Recently we decided to break the year up into 3 seasons and hold a championship tourney at the end of each with the winner getting the season title and some distinguishing mark next to their display name in the TD (example CigarDan*1* for season 1 champ). Only the top 9 in points at the end of a season are eligible for the Finals.

Currently I use a different prize template for each number of entrants to award my points, is there a way I can use this point scale with the points for playing formula or am I just better off with the 11+ different prize templates?
