The Points System is Live! Climb the Leaderboard and Earn Bragging Rights
Previously at BROsinoPoker.com our Leaderboards were based off the amount of Chips (STEEM/SPORTS) you had in your account. This was not a good indicator of who the best players were since when a player cashed out, they would drop down the leaderboard and have to work their way back up.
That problem has finally been solved (again)! Back on the old site we had a slick Leaderboard with all the bells & whistles, but the scammy Developer ran off with everything and we had to start fresh without a Dev.
In the following months I've done my best to "learn to code" and frankly it's gone better than expected. Well last night I finally figured out a way to get a proper Points Leaderboard up and it's now Live!
Originally I used the old algorithm based off PokerStars formula they used to use for tournaments, but after a few tournaments I discovered a shortcoming in either how it worked or my knowledge of math or PHP. So I did some reading and found a solution that has tested well in all scenarios we use.
Points = sqrt(Players * (Buy-in + 0.25) / (1 + Place)
Basically, you will receive less points in Freeroll's or tournaments with fewer players and m0ar points in buy-in tournaments or more players. The higher the buy-in, the m0ar points you can earn. The more players in the tourney, the m0ar points you can earn.
It's not as pronounced a difference between places finished, buy-in or number of players as the other algo, which should allow everyone a shot at staying close with some tourney selection strategies.
To spice things up a bit I have added the following buy-in tourneys that will run every 2 hours.
15 STEEM Minimum No-Limit Holdem (3 players min)
30 STEEM Minimum No-Limit Holdem (6 players min)
60 STEEM Minimum No-Limit Holdem (6 players min)
