    Ian, I'm inclined to agree. The whole point is to give people a chance of doing exactly that, it hasn't necessarily happened in the other months but this time it did what it's supposed to do. And if only Vince (leg 3 leader) had managed to come 2nd-last he would still have hung on to 3rd place, so it was an extraordinary result which brought about the outcome we had. We'll keep an eye on it, and I'm still open to putting in a multiplier in leg 3 in future, but this month being PLO leg is probably not the right time to introduce that.
  4. Hi, back mate! Have you joined the PokerStars Club? I'll alert Al to look out to accept you.
  5. The Punters Lounge £150 added Poker League continues this week with our July league. All games are played in the PokerStars Home Games PL Poker Club. This month will feature a PLO leg in week 3 with the other 3 legs NLHE. To help boost numbers and keep the league competitive throughout the month we will again have a double points multiplier in leg 4. Leg 1 : Wednesday 3rd July at 20.00 GMT in the PL Poker Club Home Game. Leg 2 : 10th July Leg 3 : 17th July - PLO Leg 4 : 24th July - double points Buy in is $5.50 per leg. Your top 3 scores of the 4 legs will count towards your league total. We will be using the usual PL league format, which will be updated in this thread. (The PokerStars own league scores will not be used.) Formula is -Log(position/Entrants)x100 All members are welcome, however you must post in this thread if asked to let us know your forum username, otherwise your placings and scores cannot be included in the league. Please spread the word and invite your friends so we can get the weekly numbers to keep this league viable. New players always welcome to join in.

    Standard scoring in final leg No double points but double entries in final leg This actually produces the same positions as standard scoring would, and would also have meant the best position someone only playing leg 4 could achieve was 7th, and even Leo winning the leg with 2 other scores behind him wouldn't have made the podium. I believe the whole idea of us doing the double points is to give someone a chance of getting in the money, and this is why we're seeing the good turnout for the final leg. If the system we use doesn't give this chance I don't think we'll get the players in. Back to the drawing board!

    I think the main problem with the doubling factor is that the points difference between the placings is doubled ie. normally a 30pt diff between 1st and 2nd becomes a 60pt diff. (The formula we use means the difference between the placings is the same, irrespective of the actual points scored) So an alternative could be to double the number of players in the formula for the final leg rather multiplying the points (so last week would be as if 24 players registered). This would increase the points available to be won but keep the normal difference between placings. Would also mean even last place scores some points. I did have a quick look at this on Weds but didn't save it. I'll run it through again and post the result later.
