Hi Corey and anyone else that can tackle this...

Here is an excerpt of an email I recieved about the points system used by a league here in Canada (LTPQ). I haven't any clue how to write a formula for this...

Quote...

First we determine the leading pack (lp) which is = 30% (rounded down) of

the number of participants in the tournament (P), then we substract the

leading pack (lp) from the number of participants (P) to get the remaining

field (F).

30%P = lp

P-lp = F

Arbitrarily, the first player eliminated from the leading pack receives 250

points. The second one, 400 points and each player after that, 100

additional points.

It's quite hard to put in a formula.

Then the field is divided by 10 to find out how many players will be in each

bracket of ten points. The remaining decimal is added to the number of

players getting 10 points.

So, if F = 45, F/10 = 4.5 then, 4 players will get 100 points, 4 other

players 90 points, etc, and 9 players will receive 10 points.

End Quote.

Thanks to all that can help
