2 seperate prize pools?
« on: December 06, 2012, 08:24:57 AM »
Hello everyone,

I'm hosting our last tournament for the year this weekend where you can *win a seat into our league that kicks off in January. It's a T2,500 tourney with a $25 buy-in ($20 goes towards the nights prize pool and $5 goes towards the league entry prize pool). Rebuys for first 3 rounds (1 hour). Rebuys are $20 ($10 towards the nights prize pool and $10 towards the league entry prize pool) and a 1 time add-on (1500 in chips) for all players after round 3 for $10 towards the league entry prize pool.

Is there a way for TD3 to keep track of both prize pools, or am I better off only inputing the info for the nights prize pool $20 buy-in, pretend its only $10 for rebuys and there is no add-on and just keep track of the league entry prize pool on my own.

*The way I'm working the league entry prize pool is:
If the league entry bonus pool exceeds the league buy-in ($75), then the remainder (after 1st place in the tourney receives their free entry into the 2013 Poker League) will go the next place finisher, up the maximum payouts listed below and so on, until all money collected for the league entry bonus pool is paid out to the winner(s).

1st Place: $75 (Full 2013 League buy-in)
2nd Place: $50 towards the 2013 League buy-in
3rd Place: $30 towards the 2013 League buy-in
4th Place on: $20 towards the 2013 League buy-in

If for some reason a winner of the league entry bonus pool does not wish to partake in the 2013 Poker League, then that player forfeits their league entry bonus pool winnings and they will be passed onto the next place finisher interested in receiving them.

This can all be entered as a rake on each transaction on the game tab, which will will also give you a summary report of total rake which can be added as a house contribution on the game you are adding the money into.  The remainder than then be displayed as prizes on the night.

Yep, I'd use the rake to collect and keep a running total of the league prize pool.  You can rename the rake and/or add additional rakes on the Preferences tab.
