Looking for Points Formula

**Haacker**:

All,

I am looking for a formula that awards points based on the following:

-Number of players in the tournament

-Amount of Money Player Invested (Buy In + Re-Buys)

-Rank in the tournament

Players would get more points if they finish better, with fewer rebuys in a tournament with more players. Make sense?

Thanks,

Steve

You want Dr. Neau's formula:

points = (sqrt(((a * b) * (b / c))) / (d + 1.0))

a = Number of Players in Event

b = Player Buy-in Expense (initial buy-in)

c = Player Total Expense (total player buy-in with re-buys)

d = Player Finish (order in which player goes out)

**Corey Cooper**:

Converted to TD would be:

sqrt(((n * bc) * (bc / tc))) / (r + 1.0)

**Karpro**:

I put this in the formula window and hit test all and get 0 for each player, any ideas as to what i've got wrong?

**Corey Cooper**:

Yes, if you don't put a value for bc (buy-in cost) and tc (total cost), the result will be 0.
