Hi, I'm looking for a very simple Formula, like formula 1 racing.

the player gets a set of points based on ranking only, for the 10 first on the rank, with non linear punctuation.

How should I do, for example:  1st 25,   2nd 18, 3rd 15, 4- 12, 5- 10, 6- 8, 7- 6, 8- 4, 9- 2 e 10- 1.

Thanks a lot.

switch(r, 1, 25, 2, 18, 3, 15, 4, 12, 5, 10, 6, 8, 7, 6, 8, 4, 9, 2, 10, 1)

Converted to TD would be:

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




I canīt get this to work in my system.

Let me explain what I want to do, and hopefully someone can give me a good formula :)


We are 20 friends which play every Friday, 10 % of the prizepool goes to buying new tables and cards.

Example of tournament:

Buy-in: 100 $ freezout tournament, 12 minutes blinds and 20K stacks.

3 prizes.

1.prize------> 55 % of buy in and 55 points for victory
2.prize------> 35 % of buy in and 35 points for runner up.
3.prize------> Goes to the "club" for buying new tables and cards and so on.


Today we export the tournaments to statsgenie and link them to our homepage so that players can track their results.

Is there a way to set always 10 % of tournaments to the house? Instead of designating a prize to it?

Also I could really need a good formula for the points.

I like the idea that if I buy in 100 $ and win the tournaments I get more points then if I rebuy/addon also.

I need to have points for all the players playing, but I am unsure of how to do it.

Could you please help me with this?

Thanks :)

Use a rake.  For your example of $100 buy-in, set the buy-in rake to be $10.  TD will sum up the collected rake on the Stats tab.

If they are fixed, you can award the points via the prize.  If you want a formula, it would be:

switch(r, 1, 55, 2, 35)

Hello,

I need a formula for this:

20pts for 1st
19pts for 2nd
18pts for 3rd
...
2pts for the 19th
1pt for 20th
1pt upcoming players too

But I want these points to be multiplied by the quotient 1.xx related to the number of players in this game. Eg 22 players present, the points are multiplied by 1.22, if 12 players enter the points are multiplied by 1.12

Do you think this is possible?
If this is not possible I will pass an Excel spreadsheet but that would be less convenient.

Thank you

Assuming 1st place gets 20 points and 20th place gets 1 point no matter how many players enter the tournament:

max(0, 21 - rank) * (1 + n / 100)

If you want 1st place to get points equivalent to the number of players in the tournament:

max(0, position) * (1 + n / 100)

Thanks a lot. It work just like I want.

I have now a new question :
When I export stats, is it possible to have 3 decimals in the row points ?

Thank you ;-)

Settings window -> Preferences tab -> Currency / Numbers category -> Points precision
