Hey guys/gals, hopefully someone can help me out here. I'm looking to use a formula for a small league that is starting up soon. I also need a bit of help in where to use it in the software.

Payouts will be based on how many players are in each tourney. Example, 7 and fewer will pay top 2 places (70%/30%). 8 and over will pay top 3 places (50%/30%/10%). Over 16 will pay top 4 places, etc...

Points will also be given to players for each tournament based on finishing position. For example, if 10 players buy in then first place would receive 10 points, second place 9 points, etc.

Additional points will be given for the players that finish in the money. For example, if the top 3 players are paid, first place receives an additional 3 points, 2nd receives 2 points and third receives 1 point. Points will be adjusted based upon the number of players.

Example point breakdown for a 10 player tourney:

1st 13 points

2nd 11 points

3rd 9 points

4th 7 points

5th 6 points

6th 5 points

7th 4 points

8th 3 points

9th 2 points

10th 1 point

The total points earned from a player's best 5 results (lowest score dropped) will be used to determine their chip stack for the Main Event. The player that has the highest total points will be crowned "Player of the Year".

We are playing 6 tourney, but as above, will only count the best 5 results for each player.

What formula would be good for this, and how would I set up the software to use it?

Thanks in advance for the replies and help....
