Help Me / Re: WSOP POY Formula
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:48:47 AM »
Would you believe I worked on this and tested it to the extent that it didn't error, but didn't really see if the values were correct?  I would.

The variable names in the "assign" statements need quotes:

assign("p", n - 9)
assign("p20", round(p * .2))
assign("p30", round(p * .3))

round(switch(r,1,477.45,2,238.75,3,214.845,4,190.97,5,179.05,6,167.1,7,143.25,8,131.27,9,119.35)*pow(n,0.125))
+ if((r > 9) and (r <= 9 + p20), 95.49 * pow(n, 0.125))
+ if((r > 9 + p20) and (r <= p + 9 + p20 + p30), 47.745 * pow(n, 0.125))
+ if(r > p + 9 + p20 + p30, 23.875 * pow(n, 0.125))

Player seating is recorded in the tournament history at tournament start.  There are preferences to record accepted player movement suggestions and manual player movement in the tournament history, but those are relatively recent additions.

Keep in mind that this is recorded in what is essentially a human readable log, not a program friendly format.  It certainly could be kept, but there has not been, historically, much interest in this.

Some, in a couple of sessions, but I've not really come to any conclusions.  Other than I suspect the simple size of your DB could be an issue.  When you add players from the DB, the entire list is rendered (thousands of players).  Buy in 100 players, one at a time, and that list of 1000s is displayed 100 times.  This should not be a problem, but we're talking about Internet Explorer here.  I imagine that's exploiting an IE memory leak.

Yes, just as I forgot the decimal point previously, in my haste to fix it I added it incorrectly:

5 + (5 * numberOfHits) + (switch(rank, 1, .33, 2, .22, 3, .12, 4, .08, 5, .07, 6, .06, 7, .05, 8, .04, 9, .03) * (10 * buyins))

I'm also fixing this quickly.  I apologize if there's yet another aspect I've overlooked.

OK, here's what I came up with.  I worked on this, realized I wasn't doing it right, started to re-work it, and had to leave for a while.  Hours later I picked it back up, so I could be completely off in la-la-land at this point.  Keep that in mind.

assign(p, n - 9)
assign(p20, round(p * .2))
assign(p30, round(p * .3))

round(switch(r,1,477.45,2,238.75,3,214.845,4,190.97,5,179.05,6,167.1,7,143.25,8,131.27,9,119.35)*pow(n,0.125))
+ if((r > 9) and (r <= 9 + p20), 95.49 * pow(n, 0.125))
+ if((r > 9 + p20) and (r <= p + 9 + p20 + p30), 47.745 * pow(n, 0.125))
+ if(r > p + 9 + p20 + p30, 23.875 * pow(n, 0.125))


First, "next 20%, 30%, 50%" implies that the remainder of the players, after the top 9, must add up to 100%.  So those percentages are referring NOT to the total number of players in the tournament, but the players in the tournament minus the top 9.

So I found it easiest to compute the number of players remaining, and 20% of them and 30% of them.  That makes the actual formula simpler.  We don't need to compute 50% of them because that's simply what is left.

Essentially each line awards a "class" of player.  Either you're in the top 9, or the next 20%, or the next 30%, or the next 50%.  Any player will only qualify for one of those categories, so adding them up is fine, since 3 out of 4 will always evaluate to 0.

I hope the rest is self-explanatory.  Let me know if there are questions.  And check my math.  The odds that I made a mistake are high.  :)

Unfortunately no, because the application doesn't keep tracking of starting table, ending table, etc.  Only current table.

You can find the starting table/seat in the Tournament History (press the History button on the Game tab).  But you'd have to collate the data yourself.

So this is for the top 9 finishers?  And 'next 20%'  means the next 20% of finishers?  So if there were 100 players, the "next 20%" would be ranks 10 through 29?

Suggestions / Re: rebuy/add-on - original positions

Sorry I didn't explicitly state that.  Just press the History button on the Game tab, or right-click in the Game window and select Tournament history.  It will open in a "modeless" dialog (which means it's on top of the main window, but you can leave it open and still access other windows).  So if you want to leave it open you can.  You can actually add your own items to the history, too, which is probably a feature most people don't realize.  Say something happens during your tournament you want to record.  Just add an entry to the history.  It will show up in a slightly different color to signify it's a user-added comment, and will have a timestamp.

Also, on the Preferences tab, select the behavior category.  Near the end of the list of checkboxes you'll find Record accepted player movement suggestions in Tournament History and Record manual player movement in Tournament History.

I see.  So each player simply gets 5 points for buying in.  That is a small change to the formula.  The (5 * buyins) part just becomes 5.

5 + (5 * numberOfHits) + (switch(rank, 1, 33, 2, 22, 3, 12, 4, 8, 5, 7, 6, 6, 7, 5, 8, 4, 9, 3) * (10 * buyins))

You could use the Points for buy-in and Points for hit fields, but those are usually meant as easy ways to award points if you don't want to use a formula.  The TD will award points for any of those fields, including the Points for Playing field, that you put a value in.  Thus, if your Points for Playing formula includes points for knocking players out and you also fill in the Points for hit field, you'll be awarding double points for knocking out other players.

It has been my experience that you should use either the simple fields or the Points for Playing formula field, but not both.  It tends to end up being a source of frustration when trying to figure out why your points formula isn't awarding the points you think it should be.

So, the above formula should be good.  It includes points for buying in, points for knocking players out, and points from the points prize pool.

Oh, oops, I forgot the decimal point on the percentages.

5 + (5 * numberOfHits) + (switch(rank, 1, .33, 2, .22, 3, .12, 4, .8, 5, .7, 6, .6, 7, .5, 8, .4, 9, .3) * (10 * buyins))

Good observation.  I tried it on a PC that has the UAC level all the way down, which means basically everything runs as administrator.  I sometimes forget about that caveat.

Glad to hear it worked for you.  Definitely unfortunate that the application froze, but it's good that the workaround is viable.

This is a pretty cool concept.  Portable, wireless scanner by way of your cell phone.

When I first started the scanner, it seemed to work fine.  The barcodes were scanned and they showed up in the app.  But when I opened Notepad and scanned some barcodes with Notepad in focus, they barcodes did not get typed into Notepad.  I eventually switched to "Continuous mode", and the barcodes were typed in Notepad upon scanning.  Then I switched to the TD and it also worked just fine.  I began to think maybe it was "Single scan" mode that didn't work, so I opened it back up, went into Single scan mode, and scanned a barcode.  It was typed into the TD as expected.  I have no explanation for why it didn't work at first, but after the first successful scan and entry into Notepad, everything just worked.

I'm not sure why it isn't working for you.  The app and server definitely work as advertised.

So I'm not sure I'm understanding correctly, but from what I do understand, here's the formula:

(5 * buyins) + (5 * numberOfHits) + (switch(rank, 1, 33, 2, 22, 3, 12, 4, 8, 5, 7, 6, 6, 7, 5, 8, 4, 9, 3) * (10 * buyins))

For a 10 player tournament, here are the awards:

 1st: 3,350.00
 2nd: 2,250.00
 3rd: 1,250.00
 4th: 850.00
 5th: 750.00
 6th: 650.00
 7th: 550.00
 8th: 450.00
 9th: 350.00
10th: 50.00


And here are the details:

Quote
5 points are awarded to each player per entry in the tournament

So, if there are 10 players, each player automatically gets 50 points?  That's what the formula I supplied gives.

Quote
5 points are awarded per knockout of another player from the tournament

That's the (5 * numberOfHits) part.

Quote
15 points are awarded for knocking out the previous events winner

The formula does not include this.  But you can make this happen by creating a Prize that has points as the award, and setting the Recipient as a "bounty on player ...".

Quote
10 points are added to the prize pool per player entered in the tournament, creating the points pool for that event

So essentially the prize pool is 10 times the number of entries.  That's the (10 * buyins) part, and it's multiplied by a percentage based on rank (that's the switch() part).

Quote
We also have a 10 tournament season, with the best 7 counting towards the end of the season totals (you drop your 3 lowest tournaments).

Easy to do on the Stats tab.  Create a Profile and set the Overall Formula to:

sum(top(7, listPoints))

Interesting concept.  I'll try to test it out.  Typically, if it works with Internet Explorer it should work with the TD.  If it creates keystrokes, as traditional barcode scanners do, it should work with the TD.

That's kind of what I was thinking, but I'm happy to entertain changes to make it work better, easier, whatever.
