Hi Guys/Gals

1st post, but wanted to share in a thread thats seemed appropriate.

I have run a Bar League for almost 3 years now and use a formula taken from

**BLUFF** Magazine's Poker Tour I was in a couple of years back,(Thanks Jeff)

It takes into account the # of players and rewards players accordingly. The more players entered the more points awarded, the less players= less points.

To be honest I'm not too sure why the values are what they are, I just know they work

really well. You'll notice the point spread between one place to the next spreads out the deeper you finish, but the difference between 33rd and 32nd is only .75 points.

We use this for all tournaments and most seasons are 4-6 months 2 games per week.

In the Formula Box: 10*sqrt(n)/sqrt(r)*4.162

As I said... why multiply by 4.162?? Have no Idea, but it works. Here's a spread sheet for 34 players.
