Formula for adding number of points plus number of re-buys
« on: October 12, 2006, 07:14:58 AM »
The formula below is supposed to add the number of players plus the number of re-buys to come up with a point total.  For some reason this formula is not picking up the re-buys and adding them to the points.  Any suggestions

round(if(r==1, n+nr, if(r==2, .80*(n+nr), if(r==3, .70*(n+nr), if(r==4, .60*(n+nr), if(r==5, .50*(n+nr), if(r==6, .40*(n+nr), if(r==7, .30*(n+nr), if(r==8, .20*(n+nr), if(r>8, .05*(n+nr)))))))))))

I'll toss in my 2 cents...

The formula I use actually SUBTRACTS a point for rebuys.  My logic is: If a player gets in the money without a rebuy, he deserves a larger point award than someone that had 2 chances (or more).

You may be adding points to encourage rebuys (hence, sweetening the pot), but I think it is somewhat of a disservice to the purest among us.

nr = number of rebuys = the number of rebuys that player purchased

Sounds like you might be wanting the total number of rebuys purchased by all players?
