Newbie. How to calculate a formula
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:27:49 PM »
Needing assistance on how to calculate so that my payout works without having to manually calculate when its time to do the payout.
Total of Buy-ins + Rebuys + Add-ons / 2 = House Contribution.
example: 50 players. ($5 buy-in with 50 players = $250, $5 rebuy with 50 players = $250, $5 add-on with 50 players = $250) ($250+$250+$250=$750) (Total *Buy-In+Rebuy+Add-on/House(50%)=$375+750=$1125 total pot.

Please help!!!!

Thank you,
Chris

The House Contribution field only takes a static number (no formulas), so I think you're going to continue to have to determine manually what it will be, if I'm understanding you correctly.  The "Take-in" section on the Summary tab will tell you quickly how much has been collected through buy-ins, rebuys, and add-ons, so it should be fairly easy to simply half that number and set the House Contribution field.

Thank you for the post. I've used the previous version and just got the new version. Wasn't sure and wasn't sure if it was possible or not.
Thanks a million.
We start our game up week after next and didn't want to bang head against a unbreakable wall.  ;D
