Using rake to keep track of sidepot
« on: December 22, 2012, 05:06:35 AM »
I'm going to run a tournament where you can either buy in for the regular cost (500) or for a "highstakes cost" (1000) where the "sidepot" (the extra 500 from those buying in for 1000) is being given to the person that lasts longer out of the ones buying in for 1000.

i think of using an rake that i name "sidepot" to keep track of the ones that buy in for the larger amount, and so far it seems to work when i run a test at home. (i don't know if this is the proper way of doing it)

But is there any way to get the information about the amount of the sidpot in a cell in my layout.
I could edit it my self manually, but i would like it to work like a token ex <rake rakeName="Sidepot"> and the ability to have a condition like "if rake rakeName="Sidepot" > 0

That's a good way to keep track of the side pot.  But there isn't a way to reference a particular rake in the layout or in the conditions, at this time.  Sounds like a good addition.
