Help Me / Too many PCs same license?
« on: October 23, 2017, 08:29:18 PM »
A family member purchased a license key awhile back. I know it's on that PC and my old laptop. trying to validate on new PC but says invalid. Does the software know how many times the license has been used?

i'm using surface 3 tablet now. the display seems "scrunched" and it is difficult to see the "set per player" number of chips. the box won't stretch and I can't see the number to change it. how do I change settings to read everything?

Anyone know the music that ESPN used for the opening theme to the Final Table? I would LOVE to use it in my tournaments!

An easier way that works for me: I use the "Level End" event. I put all of my sound files in order and when the first level ends, the next blinds level file is played, and so on. For the first level, I play a welcome message that ends with the opening blinds level ("tournament start" event).

Thanks for the replies! I happened to stumble across it before I could come back and check the forum! Just like Corey said! Thanks again!

Help Me / H.O.R.S.E. Tournament Setup
« on: August 31, 2010, 11:59:37 AM »
I am trying to configure a layout (using the default layout) for a H.O.R.S.E. tournament. I have found no game name for Razz, and there isn't one for 5 Card Draw, which is my "E." game (I am not using 7 stud eights or better). Is there a way to display what the next game is as well as the current game being played if either one is Razz or 5 Card Draw? If I have to custom-make each level, I will have plenty of time to do that, as this tournament is a couple months away.

Also, is there a way to include the games on the blinds schedule page as well? I know it can be done using the standard game type and game name columns, but can it be custom-configured to put whatever game I want to in there such as Razz and 5 Card?

I'm sure there is a way to do this, but I haven't fiddled with anything new in 6 months, as my new job has me working weekends (which is about to change). I know someone out there has had to have played a HORSE tournament and has a way to make it work. Thanks!

Help Me / Re: Scoring help
« on: February 17, 2010, 11:03:30 PM »
Here is the formula I use for my league: I can have over 10,000 points in a 20 game season. Some like to keep points low, we don't! So you can fiddle with the numbers however you want...

By using this formula it will ALMOST GUARANTEE that no 2 players will tie!

Points for Playing formula

25 points for bounty (put this in Prizes tab)

It works like this (bear with me):

(100/n)*(n-r+1) = 100/number of players x number-rank+1 gives you a "percentage" a 10 player game, it would be 100 for 1st, 90 for 2nd, 80 for 3rd, down to 10 for 10th...
*7 = basically that formula *7
+(bc*15) = buy-in cost x 15 (say $10 x 15 = 150) (make sure there is a dollar value in the Buy-in column on game tab)
+(finalTable*40) = 40 points for Final Table
+(nh*25) = 25 points for each hit/knockout
+switch(r,1,80,2,40,3,20) = 1st place 80 point bonus, 2nd 40 point bonus, 3rd 20 point bonus

Then, in the stats filter, use:

points      (for the formula above)

in the overall score use


That's it!

I am thinking something like this, if I may:

I am throwing this together pretty quick, maybe it can help!

1,500 chips x 60 players = 90,000 (not including rebuy/addons)

Also, I would not add-on chips after the 5th round, this adds more chips to the total and may not thin the field as quickly. Personally, I would advise against it. Rebuy/addon UP TO Round 5 would be fine, given the low chip count and structure.

if lowest chip is $25    (if lowest is $5 chip, then maybe start with 5-10, 10-20, then go to 25-50)

50-100      20 minute blinds
break - 10 minutes
200-400     20 minute blinds
break - 10 minutes
500-1000    20 minute blinds
break - 10 minutes
800-1600 ante 50
1000-2000 ante 100  blinds are now 15 minutes
2000-4000 ante 200
3000-6000 ante 300
break - 10 minutes
FINAL HOUR - 10 minute blinds
4000-8000 ante 500
5000-10000 ante 1000
6000-12000 ante 2000
10000-20000 ante 4000

In any league/home game I have played in that has a time limit, the final hour goes by fast to:
1. narrow the field
2. end the game on time
3. promote aggressive play

General Discussion / Let it Ride Bonus
« on: December 07, 2009, 12:10:36 AM »
Does anyone know where I can find the (exact) layout for the game "Let it Ride Bonus"? I have searched the web for the exact layout consisting of the 3 card bonus circle and the $1 bonus bet and can't find even a picture of it anywhere. I know Shufflemaster has it registered/trademarked but you'd think there was a photo of one somewhere! I am a big fan of the game and I would love to have a replica of the layout on felt so I can build a tabletop for it. If not, I can draw it out by hand (with some help!). I would prefer to have a pre-made layout, but worse come to worse, I can do it myself. Can anyone help me out?

Help Me / Re: Points and Overall Score Help/Clarification
« on: November 23, 2009, 03:33:43 PM »
Yeah, I believe all you need to do is this... Remove the prizes. Then, in the points for playing, make it look like this:


substitute the # for the bonus points you want. the first # is for 1st, the 2nd # for 2nd place and the 3rd # for third place.

Set the "Tournament Scoring" in your stats filter to    points
Set the "Overall Scoring" in your stats filter to      average(points)

This way whatever points you receive for the points for playing will be in your tournament scoring portion of your formula, and then the overall formula will average out those points across all played tournaments.

This should give you what you want!
