Ok, I really did try before posting, but am embarrassed to admit I just can't get my head around the formulas for points systems. If I simply want to award points based on final ranking, and scaled by the number of players, how do I code that formula?

...say there are 10 players in the tourney:

1st place = 10pts

2nd place = 9pts

3rd place = 8 pts.

and so on....If there were 25 layers 1st would get 25 points...

I would also like to play with a version that awards a point for busting out another player. can anyone help me understand this?
