Help Me / Re: Hitmen when there are Rebuys
« on: July 19, 2006, 06:02:12 AM »
Nope - I believe a hitman should be accredited only when they have knocked someone out of the tourney.

That person who you then beat in an all-in may not have pushed in there had it been a freezeout tourney. Also, just 'cos you beat someone in a hand, if they are still in the tourney afterwards 'cos of a rebuiy then they aint out - end of story. In that situation it is no different to just having won a pot from a player and leaving them some chips which is in reality what a rebuy tourney emulates when someone rebuys.

At the end of the day if a player is in a tourney then they havent been knocked out. Simple as that.

Ah ok

I understand that the length may well be too big - it is more the width I was on about - the right-hand side went off the screen. But as you say I guess I can mess around directly easy enough if I need to

Help Me / Auto resize Player Rankings

I have used the "auto resize" feature on the main screen and it works very well. However, how do I do the same "auto resize" on the Player Rankings screen? I ask as the menu option to Auto Resize doesn't appear for the screen (or the Seating screen either)?


Help Me / How do I Extract Best 15 Performances?
« on: July 07, 2006, 04:21:38 AM »

The league I am running is a 6-month league that is offering a a first prize of a seat package in the EPT Copenhagen event in Jan 2007. The league ends Dec 06 meaning there will have been around 25 tourneys by the end. The best performing player (most points) gets the first prize (the points are awarded for making a final table - 10 points to the winner and 1 point for 9th place).

Ok - fair enough so far. However, to allow for people not to be entirley disadvantaged should they miss a couple of tourneys due to holidays / illness etc - it was agreed that a player's perofrmance will be determined from taking the the sum of their best 15 tournament performances.

Any idea how I can do that without having to tot that all up manually?

In advance thanks

Right, gottit

As you say, your example off 100 and 5 makes it easy - we can do it this way but it is a pain cos it doesnt always work out that easy or straightforward - would be dead cool if you could include (at some point) the option of a house rake that is a choice between a percentage or fixed amount (like poker tournament manager does now).

The other alternative I have come up with is to make my prizes add up to 90% - it just means i cant differentiate between pot and prize total

Thanks for the reply

Yep - you are right - we are raking the pot but prefer to rake it on a percentage basis. And yes we could work out a fixed price based on a percentage - however, how does that allow me to show the prizes total (in other words the total pot less the rake)?

Hi - Just started evaluating TD - so far very impressed. I am a current user of Poker Tournament Manager, but TD seems much more flexible.

Quick question though - can you show the prize pool total rather than the pot total (that is, the prizes total value in the options bit of the prizes tab)? I can see a token for pot, and also tokens to list the prizes - but I can't see one that gives the value of the totals prizes.

I ask as we do run tourneys and there are some expenses incurred which we cover by taking 5% of the pot (some food for the break basically). Using TD it seems that to cater for that we just set up prizes that add up to 95% of the pot and ensure that "share left overs" is off for all places. That should leave 5% in the kitty for us to pay off the expenses. However, I want the 95% total given not the 100% value.

Can that be done?

Thanks in advance.
