Hi everyone,

I'm writing here from France: I am the president of a poker club (association) and I would loke to know if someone could help me to make my formula for our tournaments.

here is the situation:

- we usually make 1/3 of ITM: so if n represent the amount of players ITM is when r<=n/3.

- we use the "winamax formula which includes the "winamax point factor". That factor is the one that bothers me.

- the original formula is:

{[sqrt(n/(pow(r,exp(10/n))]/Y}*b*n

where

n= number of players

r= rank

Y= sum of winamax point. each ITM player as a Winamax point x(r)=sqrt(n/(pow(r,exp(10/n))

I made my formula for 63 player (Y=53.45) and it's ok. But I don't know how to make a general formula for n players. In fact I don't know how to introduce the "x" or the "Y" variable.

If you can help I would be grateful.

Thanks a lot.

Johnfolds
