Klokkhammer asked for some more details regarding the leader board. Here you are :)
I wanted a system that took into account the number of players in each game, the number og games that each player played and your finish place. There are several ways to do this but the main two are as follows:
1- The way we have done it thus far. If there are five players in a tourney, then 1st place gets 5 points and 5th place gets 1 point. Anyone that didn't play gets 0 points. This seems to cover all the bases pretty well. It rewards being a regular player and it rewards consistantly placing high. However, it does not reward playing to win. I have won 3 out of 4 tourneys, but was the first to bust out in the only one I didn't win. While MrSmith has only won 1 tourney but placed 2nd in the other 3. MrSmith has been more consistant and is thus at the top of the leader board in front of me.
2- Some systems give the tourney winner an extra point as a bonus for winning. If we used this system, then I would get 3 extra points for my three wins and MrSmith would get 1 extra point for his one win. Thus I would be leading him by 1 point. If we look at ROI then we see that only MrEMC2, MrSmith and myself have a positive ROI. I am in the lead with 127 %, MrSmith has 93% and MrEMC2 has 14%. (MrE has taken 3rd in all 4 tourneys however two have had payouts less than the buy in due to few players. So his roi should be higher). Everyone else has a negative ROI at this point. ROI might not be fair considering we play so few games.
I don't have any preferance as to what system we use. Come with something completely different if you have an idea. My main goal is just to get more people to play regularly. The lack of players has the largest impact on our statistics. Notice that the three leaders are the only three that have played every game... Furthermore, we are not even half way through the year. Anyone, even an unknown newcomer could still win the title. It also helps to pay Pstars their annual luck box fee. This comes in handy when you need to hit a 4 outer on the river like I did vs MrE last night :)
Here are the detailed results thus far. Im not posting everyone's ROI, but you can calculate it yourself if you really want to.
Any and all suggestions are welcome :)
