Wow. Lots of great discussion here. We are into game #5 of our 2007 Series. This is our second season. The first one went very well and I have had to cap the number of people I invite to this year. I will share what we are doing in case it is of use to anyone setting up a series.

We play with two tables. Minimum # of players is 6 and Maximum is 16 for official PFH Series Games.

Points formula is quite simple. Each player receives 10 points for every player that busts out before them. The top four players (Cash earners) get their points factored as follows:

1st place is multiplied by 1.50

2nd place is multiplied by 1.35

3rd place is multiplied by 1.15

4th place is multiplied by 1.05

We run the series from January to October and the top eight points earners will meet at the final table.

I commit to hosting a minimum of 20 games and a maximum of 40 during the season, (life happens).

Points are based off of the best 7 of the first 10 games played.

Each player receives 2 points for every elimination, (they all liked the idea of a take out bonus). This is in place for the entire series, even after your first 10 games are done.

We have 52 on the invite list, (how is that for coincidence?). Many players play more than the 10 games needed for points calculations. In October, there is a satellite seat game. The 8 seats at this game go to the players with the most games played that currently have not made it to the final table. The top 2 from this game get to join the chosen 8 for a final table game of TEN players.

Every player contributes $5 each game to the final pot.

In addition to the nightly payouts for the top four positions, we have a nightly bounty pot and three accumulating pots.

(1) Bad Beat Pot.... Pays out when it occurs.

(2) Gunslinger Pot... Pays out when the pot trips over the $100 limit.

(3) Best Hand Pot... Pays out when the pot trips over the $75 limit.

Currently we are using TD to run the tournament but we track all of the points rankings, financial rankings, and pots in Excel. TD is a great program, but we felt Excel would meet our Unique needs better.

Anyways,

Great to hear what everyone is doing with TD and their Poker Series...

Cheers,
