Help Me / Re: Chop Points not adding up Correctly
« on: March 23, 2019, 03:37:19 PM »

I figured what was wrong if you could please tell me how to fix it.

The points system is off. The program is giving each money finish extra points instead of just ten points.
Every person in the money should get an extra 10 points.

The program is giving 4th place 10 points
3rd place 20 points
2nd place 30 points
1st place 40 points
All players in money should get 10 points.

When I chop points it is giving both people 1st place and chopping two 1st place points.
I want it to chop just 1st and 2nd place points.
If you look at the screen shot I posted earlier, you should be able to understand what I am trying to say.

In a 12 person tournament with 1st and 2nd chopped the points should look like this.

1st 125
1st 125
3rd 110
4th 100
5th 80
6th 70
7th 60
8th 50
9th 40
10th 30
11th 20
12th 10

and negative 10 points for any rebuys.

Thank you for the awesome program that I have used for many years and thank you for all your help.

If my math is right the two players who chopped should get 125 points not 160.

I use the following points system.

10 points for where ever you finish.
Example in a 10 person tournament.
First Place gets a 100 points and last gets 10 points.

10 points for finishing in the money

Negative 10 points for rebuying
You can finish the night with negative points

If I am correct the formula should read this.

((10 * (n - r + 1)) + if(inTheMoney, 10 * (inTheMoneyRank - r + 1)) - (10 * (numberOfRebuys)))

In my last tournament we had 12 people playing.

1st and 2nd Chopped.
The points should be 125 per a player.

Tournament Director is giving each player 160 points.

What am I doing wrong.

This also happened in my first tournament.

Any help would be greatly accepted.

Cory could you please convert to TD3 points formula?

10 * (numbers of players)

10 points for finishing in money

negative 10 points for every rebuy

you can never receive lower than zero points.

I think this is the formula I am looking for not sure.

max(0, (10 * (n - r + 1)) + if(inthemoney, 10 * (inthemoneyrank - r + 1)) - (10 * (numberofrebuys))

What is Dr. Neau's points formula converted to Tournament Director formula for points.
sqrt(((n * bc) * (bc / tc))) / (r + 1.0) is this the correct formula for Dr. Neau. If not what is.

The buy in is $20.00
rebuy is $20.00
add on is $20.00

Just wanted to say thank you. I had my March tournament and the program worked great. I had auto save turned on and half way through the tournament the program froze. I panicked hoping no one noticed. I closed the program and brought back up with no problem. Started right where it froze up. I have complete confidence in the program again. Thank You.

I am pretty sure yes. It is coloured green. Maybe I can not find it where should I look?

I used your program for three years when I was running tournaments. Not one problem loved the program. Took a three year break and just started running tournaments again. The last two tournaments I have had trouble with the program freezing up when trying to save the tournament when the tournament finished. We use a point system and my players are starting to question me and the program not good. Last night I had auto save on. When I went to save the tournament froze up again. I thought no problem I have auto save on. Nope auto save did not work. This make me look like a fool in front of players. If I want to is there a way to go back to the same program I used three years ago with out the updates?

Looking to use this point system in my league. How is the best way to explain to my players how this point system works and could you break down how many points you get for how much money you spend?

Any body else having problems with the program freezing up at the end of a tournament? I have been having this problem. Yes I have read something about IE 11 being the cause. Just making sure I am not the only one.

Hi All,

Looking to get a formula that awards points based on the following

Number of players in the tournament

Amount of money player invested (Buy In, Rebuy and Add Ons)

Rank in tournament

10 points for every player you knock out

Players would get more points for the better they finish, with less money invested in a tournament, and 10 points for each player they knock out during the tournament.
