Formula Help - Not good at math

  1. Dec 3, 2006 #1
    Hi,
    I was looking for an introduction forum here but couldn't find one. Anyways I'm 25 years old from Daytona Beach Florida an never took calculus so here is my question

    I'm trying to come up with a formula to give out points for winning players in poker. But I have no idea of a way to start it out. So take a look.


    Date Tournament/Event Place Entrants Winnings

    06/28/2006 Hold'em NL $2 47 1,131 $6
    03/05/2006 Hold'em NL $1 53 1,421 $3
    02/21/2006 Hold'em NL $0 14 2,770 $1
    02/14/2006 Hold'em NL $1 83 1,044 $2
    02/14/2006 Hold'em NL $1 141 1,100 $2
    01/25/2006 Hold'em NL $0 44 2,275 $1

    What would be a good way to figure out a good point system formula if I just wanted to give points to the players who came in the money. I'm trying to make it fair for both High stake and low stake players These are all low stakes but below are some high stakes.

    Date Tournament/Event Place Entrants Winnings
    11/30/2006 Hold'em Limit $15 1 72 $324
    11/28/2006 Hold'em Limit $15 2 99 $297
    11/05/2006 Hold'em NL $9 11 300 $32
    11/03/2006 Hold'em NL $3+Rebuys 378 2,643 $29
    11/01/2006 Hold'em NL $20 21 601 $72
    10/19/2006 Hold'em PL $8 23 239 $19
    08/30/2006 Hold'em NL $3+Rebuys 385 2,039 $24
    08/25/2006 Hold'em Limit $20 9 180 $90
    05/29/2006 Hold'em NL $20 21 256 $51
    05/29/2006 Hold'em Limit $10 1 216 $594

    Here is a formula that 1 site is using but it's only for high stakes.

    Points = (PrizePool1/2) / (PlaceFinished3/5)

    I would really appreciate the help.
    Thanks,
    Don
