Could you email me ( the poker chip images that you have? I have the same poker chips but wasn't able to find these pics anywhere. I currently have white, red, green, blue, & black chips.

I hear what you are saying but after 2 years of TDing my own league, I have seen people get into the upper ranks by sitting and waiting, not risk taking.  They are being rewarded because they aren't calling the big bets.  True, anyone can get hits, but not everyone risks their stack to call an all-in.  What if someone maintains their stack through the entire game while another player takes everyone out.  Then the player that takes everyone out is unlucky (most time luck is all that matters between 1st and 2nd) and loses to the safe player.  Has the safe player earned their 1st place?  Yes, but if they complain because 2nd got more points then they did, then they should start playing some poker and taking risks.

There are different types of players and not all players are the risk taking type of players. You can't take risks if you don't catch the right cards. If someone moves all in and I have a crap hand, then I should fold. If Mr. Jamie Gold to my left plays 2 3 just because it's suited and knocks out two players doesn't make him any better of a player than I am. My point is that if you played your best and ended up the winner but didn't necessarily catch the right cards at an all in time, you should still be rewarded the point leader for that week. Would you agree that the guy that finishes 2nd and knocks out 10 players deserves more just because he caught trips every other hand?

I agree with the poster earlier that said there is not one correct formula because we would all use it. I'm just saying that after two seasons and going into my third in February, everyone keeps coming back week after week and no complaints from no one about the point structure. This makes me very happy...

I don't necessarily agree with rewarding points for hits. We had one tourney last season in which the winner won the whole tourney by only knocking out only 1 person (2nd place finisher). If we would have awarded points for hits, 2nd & 3rd place would have gotten more points than the winner of the tourney. Granted this don't happen often but when it does, it may make the winner a little unhappy just because he didn't catch a big hand when someone decided to move all-in.

We keep track of hits to award the person with the most hits an award at the end of each season. This works out far much better than awarding points to skew the scheme of the season. I would rather award the person that plays the best than the person that knocks more people out of the tourney. Anyone can get hits, just watch the 2006 world series of poker. Even though Jamie Gold won, I don't think he was the best player. He just caught every card possible to win.

Just my 2 cents.

We have a blue and black chip that used to get mixed up but we did exactly what dc_rocker suggested. Moved the black one to a higher value and didn't have to use them until after the blue chips were chipped up.

Correct me if I'm wrong Corey but I don't think this is possible. TD is designed to run a whole tourney.

Sounds to me that you reset the tourney before renaming it.

I would recommend resetting the tourney and start using that as your template. Just open your template tourney and do a save as (using a different name) once your ready for your next tourney. This way you can save this tourney and won't have to ever reset another tourney. Does this make sense or should I elaborate more?


Help Me / IE7

Do you plan to support IE 7 sometime in the near future? My wife was using my laptop last night and since windows is now sending messages to update windows, she installed IE 7. I haven't tested whether or not TD 2.2.2 works but have read other posts of issues regarding IE 7.

Absolutely love the program but hopefully our mess up won't effect it.

The suggested windows script solved the IE7 compatability problems on my XPSP2 box immediately!

Are you currently running TD version 2.2.2 on IE7? If so, are you having any issues with TD?

I would suggest finding a point system that works for you and then keep the point structure because the number of players per tourney may differ. My 23 person tourney starts with 32 points for first place and goes down by the rank. This way it is more fair if you win a tourney that has 23 players one week (receive 32 points) and another week someone else wins with only 20 players (still receive 32 points). The 2nd winner shouldn't be penalized for other players not showing up and have an option to win the same amount of points that someone won in week two with 23 players.

Our ten week, ten tourney, 23 players have always came down to the last week to determine the top five money winners which keeps everyone interested.

Suggestions / Re: Seating people at different tables

At our club and UK casinos the player who is about to be the big blind is moved and positioned on the new table in a vacant seat (if more than one vacant seat is available he is seated so that he will become the the big blind as soon as possible).

This is probably the best way to do it but then it takes TD randomized seating out of the picture. I would rather have TD randomly select the person to move instead of selecting someone in the blinds. If you have more than two tables, how do you select which table to pull from? Especially when the other two tables have the same amount of players.

I would suggest to have more than one session instead of having one big one for 80+ tourneys. Some may lose interest in playing if they are too far behind in points after already playing for 6 months. We only play one tournament a week (Sunday's) for ten weeks and award the top five with prizes. Then we start all over again, which everyone (even the ones that didn't do so well) came back for the second one.

I can't disagree with him that it sometimes is not fair because you could end being Big Blind at two tables, but trying to TD and play makes the auto seat move a blessing.

Our rule is that if you are moved to another table to keep the tables balanced, and if you come into a blind, just sit out two hands and let the deal pass you so you won't ever be the big blind twice if you move tables. Also, since we have a three table tournament, when a table is broken down, high card is the new dealer at each table. This has worked out great for us with no complaints.

Just my 2 cents.

I will just display the player ranking page as one of the screen sets.  It won't have the blind amounts on it, but I just won't display it that long.

Can you currently put the amount of points earned when a player busts out on the player ranking page?

This would help out a lot.

We also play ten tournaments dropping the worst two scores and keeping their best eight scores.

Corey, When you do go to make this feature request, are you going to have one column for total points and another for total points minus the number of weeks to be dropped? This feature will allow me to get rid of excel all together and solely use TD. When do you plan to implement this?

Thanks for everything. Keep up the great work.

This was the purpose for the unavailable seats. Since it only takes a few seconds to make a seat unavailable and then available when needed, I'm not sure why you would want this small manual request automated? I guess it depends on how much work it would take Corey to implement this and how easy it would be to configure it.
