General Discussion / Re: TOC Question/Feedback
« on: July 25, 2009, 02:14:21 PM »
I have 20 games per year. once a month i have a No Limit Hold'em and a Pot Limit 7 card stud games. To qualify for either championship (in november), you must win a tournament. that simple. i also have awards for the player of the year (the leader in points). i also use the default overall scoring and call it the "Rock" score. determines best consistent player. my final award is for the top "Hitman", awarded to the person who eliminates the most players. I consider my TOCs true champions tournaments, due to the fact that that's the only way you get in. I really don't have to worry about players not showing up, due to the fact that on my website all tournament dates are posted in January for the entire year and the dates very rarely change. If they do, everyone has a couple weeks notice.

If anyone is interested, please feel free to visit my site. I have pretty much everything members need to know about the season and the TOCs.

Help Me / Re: 7 Stud Layout Help
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:29:01 PM »
I am running a 7 card game along with the usual NLHE. 7 card is our 2nd game of the day. it was fairly popular in the first hald of the season, but attendance is dropping. after this season i probably will offer it as a side game of sorts. i have a very good 3 to 3 and a half hour structure set up. i shuold be able to send the file to you if you like. i have gotten pretty good at running this type tournament. of course it's easy when there are only 10 players! anyway, anyone can reach me at fouracespoker@yahoo.com. please make sure you reference this site as well as "7 card".

Help Me / Re: More Q about points
« on: February 03, 2009, 08:41:05 AM »
no formula needed. do to the Prizes tab, New Prize, edit the info to specify Points instead of Monetary and enter in the points you wish to give to the player that busts him/her out. edit info at the bottom to say "Bounty on ________" That's pretty much all there is to it!

Just had one where 2 players split a pot and busting out 2 others in the process. i gave 2 hits to each player (we don't do half-hits). that one took a day or 2 to get right. I am adding 7 card stud in two weeks. i am almost finished with everything and i think it's gonna be a huge hit! can't wait for that!

I am looking to have 7 card stud added to my monthly poker games. Does anyone have a rounds template that would do a 3 hour tournament with either $5,000 or $10,000 chips?

Help Me / Re: Can I split knock out point
« on: January 18, 2009, 12:23:02 PM »
Here's what I did with 2 players being knocked out with the winners splitting the pot:

I had 2 players split a pot while at the same time knocking out 2 others. John & Kevan split a pot with both Kathy and Kenny being all in and losing. John got 1 hit and Kevan got 1 hit each at the time. I needed to make it so that John gets another hit and Kevan gets another hit (2 each) (I am not splitting the points in half or anything like that, each knocked out 2 players, although they split the pot, they are still getting credit for the hits). I just went back and reset the tournament, KO'ed each player in order (I wrote down the order of elimination and who KO'ed that player), KO Kathy with one player, rebuy Kathy and then eliminate again with the other player. then went and Ko'ed Kenny and rebought in Kenny and then KO him again in the same fashion, then finish out the tournament with the rest of the hits.

Don't know how many players you had in your tournament (I had 10 in mine, so it went quick) and what point system you have exactly, but for me, this scenario worked out perfect. Hope this helps you out

Help Me / Re: Adding hits to players
« on: January 12, 2009, 08:58:56 PM »
i figured it out before i got to read this post. i did find a workaround though. i went back and reset the tourney, noting who went out first and by who beforehand. checked the allow rebuys box on game tab. went back in and KO'd each player in order (i only had 9 so it was easy). when i got to the small stack who was technically ko'd first in the hand, i gave one player the hit, did a rebuy for the ko'd, and then ko'd that person again with the other player. then did the same for the next player. the 2nd player was my 50 point bounty in the prizes tab. after the game was over, i went into the prizes tab, added another prize with the exact same bounty, and awarded that prize to the 2nd player. All the points worked out exactly like it was before when i just did a manual adjustment, but this time the hits were recorded.

Sorry i didn't get to post that i found the solution sooner, corey, but thank you for the quick response, as always!

Help Me / Adding hits to players
« on: January 12, 2009, 01:46:21 PM »
I had 2 players split a pot while at the same time knocking out 2 others. John & Kevan split a pot with Kathy and Kenny being all in and losing. John got 1 hit and Kevan got 1 hit. I need to make it so that John gets another hit and Kevan gets another hit (I am not splitting the points in half or anything like that, each knocked out 2 players, although they split the pot, they still get credit for the hits). So do I just go back and reset the tournament, KO each player in order (I will wite down the order of elimination and who KO'ed that player), rebuy Kathy and Kenny and then KO them again, then finish out the tournament with the rest of the hits? Or is there an easier way?

Thanks guys! Pretty much all family, some close friends and some new friends as well. We are kicking off season 2 this saturday the 10th, and afterwards i will put a couple pages back up with standings, career stats, etc. We generally average about 8-9 per tournament, but this year i think the average will be up around 11-12. one saturday a month, 2 games 3 hrs max with 30 minutes in between. If there's one thing i do more than anything when i get a thought in my head about the league, i put it in email form to all players and get their feedback and decide using that as a guide. I think I send out about 10+ emails a month! It's fun for bragging rights, talking (friendly) trash, etc. there are 8 players (including me of course) who practically never miss a game, while others show up more often than not. with new players this season, i think it will be a really tight race for player of the year. Last year, my mother and i tied and her rock score (see Overall Score) was higher than mine, thus she won the player of the year. a month later, i was going through each tourney to see who busted the bounties ("bounty hunters") and in the 6th event i noticed that a bounty was not assigned for that game. turns out she was the bounty and i was the one who eliminated her, giving me 50 more points and breaking the tie. I didn't DARE tell anyone about this (except my wife and mother in law), there was enough controversy in trying to figure out a tiebreaker at the time. now those tiebreakers are in place.

Thanks again for the kind words about the website. Freewebs.com (though now i think it is just Webs.com) is really super easy to work with, since i am not familiar at all with buliding an actual website. i would recommend it to everyone. Be sure to check for updates late on saturday the 10th or sunday the 11th!

Help Me / Re: Bonus Chips - not add-on or rebuy... Need help!
« on: January 08, 2009, 02:27:32 PM »
on the players tab when you select the player that is buying in, off to the right is the starting stack along with some other options. just re-enter the chip stack there. piece of cake!

Thats awesome dude.... now you just gotta incorporate this into it: http://videopokertable.net/

I was reading Popular Mechanics magazine (January 2009) while waiting on an oil change yesterday and came upon an article about this particular table. Made in Perth, Australia for $8,500. It was a small article, but I definitely enjoyed it! Check it out next time you are in the magazine aisle

Scotty, thanks again for the photoshop logo. I submitted it to this company that will put it on awards. the only problem now is they want it in a black and white form only. Can you or anyone help me out again on this one? I tried to convert it to B&W but it came out nowhere close to what they wanted! let me know i can also send the email reply from them specifying what they want. my email is FourAcesPoker@yahoo.com. thanks

It is definitely worth it! I have between 7 and 12 players each month. In between events I set up my layout, sound events, controls at the bottom of the main clock screen (so i can bust players out), and the TD does the rest.
