Need help with points / rankings based on bust out
« on: January 04, 2007, 06:23:53 PM »
Last year in my league we used the basic n-r+1 points scheme. This year I'm changing a few things and can't figure out the formula to use. Some detail.

Last year we had a rebuy-addon format as such: If you're at or below 1000 chips at the 90-minute break, you can rebuy/addon (max of one time, one or the other).  I didn't differentiate between the two and only busted someone out when they had no more chips and had no way to get more (from rebuy-addon). This made it easy to track points and winnings.

This year, we will still have the same rebuy/addon rule, but points are going to be awarded when you first bust out. For instance, if you bust before the break, that is your ranking and those are your points. You can still rebuy and compete for the prize money, but you can't earn additional points. Make sense?

I need a formula that lets me award points based on when the player bust out, or rank players based on when they bust out, but I need to still add their rebuy dollars to the pot and factor their rebuy chips into the average stack.  Anyone know what this formula will look like? I know I could just bust the player and have my rankings correct, but then prize money and average stack is messed up. Any ideas?

Thanks

my Suggestion is to Bust them Out Rebuy then Immediately Bust out Again.  The Points will be right and the Money will be right if you are running multiple tables you will have to manually keep track of chanhges though.

That's a good idea, thanks. Then I'll get three of the four things I want to track right: ranking/points, pot, and chips. The only thing missing will be winnings.

But you're right, it will create issues with seating.

Any formula ideas to get 4 of 4?

Well, I figured out my work-around. I can go to the players tab, right-click on the player, select edit player, and use the 'adjust points by' field to make everyone's total right.  Not as easy as I'd like, but doable.

But I'd still appreciate any ideas for a cleaner process or a formula to automate all this. Thanks.
