Help Me / Something Strange Happening with points formula
« on: May 17, 2013, 02:35:38 PM »
Hi all,

  so i had something strange happen with the formula I was using.  I ran a tournament and logged everyone out and double checked the points and they looked good so I uploaded them to my site.  

The points can be seen here for this tournament

Then I went to run a second tournament using the same formula and the results are totally different including a bunch of negative numbers.  Furthermore, when I reopened the saved file of the first tournament and looked at the points they had changed? So something must have happened to the formula but I can't figure out whats wrong?

here is the formula I am using:

10 * (ROUND(LOG(( players +5)/ rank ,10)*100,0)/10)

I am really trying to find something like Dr. Nearu's formula but without taking into account rebuys, add-ons, or buy-ins (becuase they are free tournaments)

Thanks for your help


I thought I would let you guys who have websites and large leagues about this new poker client you can integrate into your site for free.  It basically gives you a multi-table poker client that you can brand with your own logo's.  Once integrated into your site your players can login and play for free with players of all the other sites that have integrated it.

If a player runs out of chips they have to wait 24 hours before they can refresh there initial 1000.00 or they can purchase "chip packs". Any chip pack purchase is split with the website operator and with Cuebia poker, the client owners. 

It's pretty awesome... you can check it out on my site here:

and here is their site:

It is still in beta testing so the critical mass of players isn't there yet....

Check it out and let me know what you think


Help Me / Hockey Stick Points Equation?
« on: May 07, 2013, 12:24:27 PM »
Hey everyone,

    Maybe you all can help me with my points equation.  What I am looking for is a "Hockey Stick" progression with the points where it is linear for the first 60% of the field and  the last 40% get an exponential increase (although not a huge difference).  something like

for a tournament of 10 players

10th : 10
9th   : 20
8th   : 30
7th   : 40
6th   : 60
5th   : 90
4th   : 130
3rd   : 180
2nd   : 250
1st    : 350

Hitman points: 5 points per knockout

Doesn't have to be exactly like that but something similar.  Also what are your thoughts on this sort of points structure? and if you have any ideas on what might work better feel free to share.

Thanks for the help

     I am trying to figure out how to export my tournament properly using the Tournament Leaderboard Wordpress plugin.  I was given an .xml file as a template to export the data.  How do I use this template when exporting the tournament from The Tournament Director?



Help Me / Help With Setting Up Point Structure
« on: April 30, 2013, 10:06:28 AM »
Hi Everyone,

        I need some help setting up the points functions for my league. Here is what I am trying to do

1.  I am using the wordpress plugin and trying to figure out what data is required for the xml file import. What I would like to do is run a tournament where the point structure is based on the the number of players that enter the tournament but then we also have a "Fantasy Buy-in" Amount for each tournament (It is a free poker league).  What I would like to do is be able to change the "Fantasy Buy-in" amount for different tournaments to push players to come out to other venues.  Then I would like for the exported data to be displayed in graphs like this one on the pokerleaderboards website:

You can see at the bottom there is a graph for profit/loss.  In my case, this would be the profit/loss of the fantasy money.

So basically what I need is

1. a formula that bases the number of points on the total number of players (with more for finishing at the final table) and also includes a fantasy buy in amount that I can change.  most importantly, formatted properly so that the data imports into the pokerleaderboard plugin properly.

Thanks to anyone who tries to help me figure this out! I really appreciate it
