Help Me / Additional points for final Table
« on: October 13, 2010, 04:11:29 PM »
At present i am just running a basic points formulae which is n-r+10
Getting somewhere in the region of 48 players. What i would like to do is;
finish 41 - 50 get these points as per the formulae
finish 31 - 40 get an extra 10 points above the last level
finish 21 - 30 get an extra 10 points above the last level
finish 11 - 20 get an extra 10 points above the last level
finish  1 -10   get an extra 10 points above the last level ( on these numbers only the top 8 would make the money)
but i would also like to give the
1st place finisher 100 points
2nd place finisher 80 points and the 10 point less for each of the top 8 finishers
so the 8th place finisher would receive 20 points

I dont know if this makes any sense, i hope it does. and i hope some one can point me in the right direction.
The idea is that the better people do the more points they make, so that even if someone gets short stacked they will still try and play to earn the extra  points

Thanks in advance

Suggestions / Why not use

I am only knew on here.  I have ran a few tournaments with the TD.  I have tried many ways to inform and invite people to tournaments. But find it hard to get people to commit, as very few read display posters, and very few answer e mails

So for invites to a tournament I now use face book. I create an event and send out invites to interested friends only. In this i can tell them ,what, where, when, and what the cost will be.
As you say, people are reluctant to commit early on. However i find that inviting people this way, creates an interest. I can update people with the numbers signed up,  and as it starts to fill up you will find that people will not want to miss out and will commit themselves to the tournament.

You can also inform people of the schedules , blinds, levels etc. You can find out what structures they want to play. And as the numbers increase i will always update the prospective prize pool. Because nothing drags people in quicker than seeing a 4 figure prize pool.

Afer the game i can publish the results to all players and any wavering potential players, i can also get feedback, as to how the game went, what was wrong and  what can be done to make it better

Hi all,
just bought TD and its working great ran a few mock tournaments, no problems at all with it. Ran a couple of MTT's and everyone was impressed.
By reading this forum, i can see that all i have done is just scraped at the surface.
i can see that its a very versatile tool which can only improve the more times that i use it.

The help files are very good and very informative. But thats my trouble. I hate reading things from a computer.

I find that i can absorb more information by  reading things in a book form. When looking for something specific, i can refer to  the book. If I am reading a book and want to try something new, having  the book on hand to  refer to is great.

Anyway, what i am trying to say has anyone got a copy of the help files in a Microsoft word document form. That they could put up for others to down load. That for me would be a godsend.

What we need is a Tournament Director for Dummies Book. Definitley buy that.

Once again, thanks in advance

Is there anyway that i can ccopy the text in the help files and paste to a word doc?

After running several tournaments with the 1.0 version, which incidentally, was a great piece of software
I have taken the plunge and bought the latest version.
It looks great, ran a few basic dummy tournaments and it worked a treat.
The first thing that i would like to ask advice on  is on the Blind Levels display page.

When running a basic tournament with no re-buys and no add ons, how do i stop the limit 1 and limit 2 columns from being displayed.

I have tried removing these on the rounds page using the columns button and remove them  and stop them from being displayed.

This version seems to have everything that i need  albeit complicated ( well for me! - a computer Illiterate), with regards to setting up a points system, screens etc.

But i can learn all be it slowly.
Do you know if there are any Videos on YouTube, for example. that can show some some tips.

Also would it be possible to get another persons tournament data, so that i could uploaded it to my computer so that i can learn from those.

If it is at all possible.

I expect that you have several post like this already, So many thanks in advance for any suggestions or comments. And also for your patience in reading this letter.

I am sure that this will only be the first of many posts as i am eager to learn and hopefully in time i will be able to add my input to what seems to be a dedicated bunch of Tournament Director enthusiasts
