I believe this to be on Corey's To Do List as I asked for this before... ;-)

Help Me / Re: Final Table with 9 Players
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:59:52 PM »
Actually. if he wants to ONLY have his final table at 9 than he just can wait for his tournament to go down to 18 players (at which point TD will urge you to put 9 players on your last 2 tables) and make the empty seats unavailable, or delete them, on each table.

First of all, you need to configure your display monitors as you want them to work,

Right-click on your desktop and select Screen Resolusion. There you will be able (if your second screen is correctly connected to your PC/Laptop) to set the second display as ans EXTENSION of your current one or as a DUPLICATE/MIRROR. EXTENSION is your friend here. Please take note the actual resolution of your second screen

Once that is done, go to TD's Display Preferences and click on the "Move and Size Game Window to Extended Display" (You might have to entered the screen resolution values of your second screen noted in step 1)

Under the preferences tab, look for Display Preferences on the left side list, once there you will find the "Move and Size to Extended Display" on the bottom right of the  screen

Hi Corey,

of course you could, however if your purses are calculated based on the number of entries than your players have ground to feel being cheated out of money...

  • 49 entrants + 12 rebuys normally produce 5 purses.
  • 49 entrants + 12 re-entries would normally produce 7 purses.

When i run re-entry tournaments I have my SCREEN display the "number of entries" as (entries + rebuys) and set the purses accordingly.

Before that we simply created duplicate entry of our players as needed (i.e. Player Name and Player Name #2)

Re-entry - a player busts out of a tournament and purchases a new complete stack in accordance to Rule #7 of the TDA Rules (or similar when using custom rules)
This player acts a NEW player in the tournament (i.e. the number of players entered increases). Since he got up from the table he is normally reseated at another table (or have to wait for an available seat in case of alternates) and must abide by the NEW PLAYER TO THE TABLE rules of play (i.e. Should he bust on his BB an is reseated at the SAME SEAT the hand after, he cannot play the SB, he has to wait for the button to pass.)
Administration fees will be collected again for this player.

Re-buy - When a player is still in the tournament/game and has less than the starting stack (but still in the tournament) can purchase additional chips, or in the event of a cash game they can add to their stack provided it is within the minimum and maximum buy-in limits.
Actually the "less than the starting stack" rule is "local" in nature, some tournaments do require a player to lose all his/her chips in order to make a rebuy. A rebuying player cannot miss a hand unless specify by another house rule. Administration fees are normally waived on rebuys (i.e. in a 50$ + 10$ tournament, the rebuy is normally 50$). The number of entered player in the tournament does not increase when a player rebuys (This changes the way purses are calculated)

Rebuys and Re-Entries DO NOT apply to cash games.

Why would you speculate on what the OP meant. You stated a rule that applies to re-entries ONLY while answering a question about rebuys...

Normally the cost of a rebuy is less that the starting cost of the tournament because you should not charge the admin fee again... Not the case for re-entries.

Also if your tournament feature a Dealer Add-On, those could be applicable only to the start of the tournament (hence not for rebuys) in this case NO the Rebuy Stack would not be the same as the starting stack.

Honestly, use whatever works best for your group.  BUT, if you want an official take on it, Poker TDA Rules state it should be full stacks:

Rule 7: Alternates, players registering late, and re-entries will be sold full stacks, randomly seated at any position, and dealt in except between SB and button.

Re-entries and Rebuys are not the same thing...

General Discussion / Re: Minumum Raise in No Limit Texas Hold'em
« on: January 24, 2017, 06:27:40 PM »
jhisey, what jody meant is that 'the minimum raise is double the bet of the big blind' is not to raise it 400 if the big blind is 200, but raise it TO 400 if the big blind is 200, thus being "double the big blind". 

If you're going to quote, quote accurately: Jody said minimum raise IS double the bet of the big blind, not that "a minimum raise OF double the big blind"

And what Jhisey meant was that the minimum RAISE is the size of a big blind... You guys are confusing RAISE and BET AMOUNT. A raise is the DIFFERENCE between the current bet amount and the previous bet amount.

If the Big Blind is 1000 and I say I raise to 3000, my raise is actually 2000.

But to answer the OP question, No the BB is NOT to be taken as a raise of the SB, the BB shall be used as the starting BET (and minimum BET for all streets of the current hand).

Hi all,

Any way to get a report on which tournaments a certain player has played?

The only way this formula can produce negative number is if youn have more money rank than actual ranks (players)...

What is the formula you are using?

How is your "cut" defined?

Is it a hard number of a value based on attendance?

The variable mr is the "moneyRank", which will automatically be set to the highest rank with a rank-based prize.  That is, if you have prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, then mr will be 3.  If you have prizes for 1st through 10th place, then mr will be 10.

That is unless your field decide to work a deal and add say another prize to the prizepool. I believe that if you reflect that wish and create another prize (from money taken off the already set prizes) that this will change the value of mr thus the point value attributed to your players.

The game screen will take care of the "points for buyin" and "points for hits", just make sure you enter the corresponding values in the game options.

The formula for giving 3 points for every rank is: (n-r)*3 (this is if you want your last player to get 0 pts otherwise you have to use ((n-r)+1)*3 then EVERYBODY will get at least 3 points.

The formula for "in the money" bonuses is: if(r<=mr, if(r=mr, 5, (mr-r)*10), 0) which reads, if the Rank is below MoneyRank add 0 else if the Rank is equal to MoneyRank then add 5 points else add the subtraction of the actual Rank from the MoneyRank and multilply by 10.

So the end formula should be:

(n-r)*3 + if(r<=mr, if(r=mr, 5, (mr-r)*10), 0)

So, why wouldn't overriding the value have the same effect?
Because as soon as you change one prize the others change as well... So you have to write them down to re-create them... Would be much easier if you could do iy in one swoop from within TD.
