Help Me / Points and Overall Score Help/Clarification
« on: November 23, 2009, 01:53:39 PM »
I'm running a 5 tournament league to send one player to the WSOP in 2010. I have the following formulas in the following locations;
Game Tab
"Points for Playing" field

Stats tab
"Tournament Scoring"
log((n + 1) / r)

Stats tab
"Overall Scoring"
(1-exp(-average(scores))) * 100

I got these formulas from different places on these formus. I have also added some bonus points into the top 3 places on the prizes tab for each tournament. I see the bonus points in the summary section for the tournament but they don't seem to affect the overall score field on the stats page. This is the field we will pick our winner from. My question is this: Is there a way to get the bonus points to affect the overall score or are these two separate scoring systems all together?

Help Me / Bonus Dealer
« on: October 17, 2009, 09:49:58 AM »
Here's an odd question. In our league we usually have two tables per tournament. We always ask for volunteers to be players/dealers. That affords the rest of the players the chance to concentrate on their game and really speeds our tournaments up because everything seems to run a bit smoother with only one dealer. However, the one downside to this is the player who deals is at a slight disadvantage by having to split their attention between dealing and playing in each hand. So my question is this:

Has anyone ever thought of a way to give some bonus points to a player based on them being a designated dealer? I just think it would be a nice thank you to reward the players willing to do this for the rest of us.

Help Me / League Fee Tracking
« on: May 11, 2009, 10:58:22 PM »
Hello All,

I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't seem to find it so far. I currently run a 9 month league. We all contribute an upfront fee that is fed into a pot for a champions tourney at the end of the season along with a % rake from each monthly tournament. Does anyone have a way to track if a player has paid their league fee inside TD that can also show on the stats page for exporting? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Problem with spacing my layout
« on: September 03, 2008, 02:17:08 PM »
Hello all,
I've recently been building a new layout based on the BPC layout. One thing I'm having a problem with is some mysterious sapcing between two columns that are in the same row. The gap has no apparent source. I've set both columns and all their contained cells to the same width. The contents don't go beyond that width setting either. I was wondering if there is some sort of pre-programmed gap between columns or if anyone else has encountered this before?

Suggestions / Add "bottom" to Prizes tag

Could you add a way to display the Position/Player Name above the prize amount the same way you can with teh Chips tag?

Help Me / Player Stats Tab on a Screen
« on: August 18, 2008, 07:58:18 PM »
Has anyone created a Screen to display the player Stats in the same way a seating chart or the main tournament screen is displayed? It would be nice to have this as part of my rotation as to avoid the "What rank am I?" question 50 times a night.

Help Me / Help with seating chart "cell" vs "screen"
« on: August 17, 2008, 09:27:35 PM »
Is there a way to get a seating chart cell to use a blue print in the same way the seating chart screen does? Also is there a way to edit how the players names are displayed on the table blueprints?

Is there a way to correct the start date of an already completed tournament after the file has been saved. When I ran my last two tournaments the date was incorrect on my computer so the start date of the tournament was also incorrect. Of course this makes these two tournaments not show up in the filtered stats results page. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Help Me / Stupid question about rebuy points...
« on: August 17, 2008, 05:09:11 PM »
Ok, we have a league that has 18 tournaments with two tournaments per month. Normally we don't allow re buys but we have one unusual rule that allows a player to Ruby if they areknocked out in the first blind structure. Last night this happened and we were debating how to handle the points. Would the player be penalized for the early knockout? Our first thoughts were that if the player got knocked out then re bought and won the tourney that they would basically get middle of the road points. (As though the went out in the middle of the tourney.) However after the tournament was over I realized that of course, the program would award them they're points for their ultimate finishing place. (Which happened to be 2nd.) My question is this: Has anyone ever thought along these lines and if so is there a way to manipulate the points to give the player a middle of the road score or should he be allowed to keep his 2nd place points?

Help Me / Scoring vs. Points
« on: March 11, 2008, 02:33:20 PM »
Hello all,

I have a question about points vs. scoring. We run a small league;(around 20 players) and I have always entered my formula in the area that now says "Points for Playing". Previously my formula gave more weight to those placing in the money which is how we liked it. We used the column "Overall Score" on the stats tab for our sorting. It now looks as though there are different formula locations that do different things. Now the Overall scoring column seems to give everyone a score of and it looks like the Average points column is more like what the Overall Score column used to be. Basically I'm wondering if anyone can explain to me the difference between Overall score and Points for Playing. Also, what the heck is a "Hit"? We always assumed that it meant when a player got knocked out that you got a hit but now I'm not so sure. Any help you can give is appreciated. BTW if Mr. Cooper reads this you have done a FANTASTIC job with this program. I work at a small poker room here in Florida and I have convinced the poker room manager to use your program if it's OK with you.
