Does anyone know how the scoring system in the Home Games works ?

In the PokerSchoolOnline Community Home Game, as an instance, Briany84 and gmanwicksy have both played two games and are both on 2.27 points

Briany84 finished in 3rd out of 9 and 3rd out of 7
gmanwicksy finished in 3rd out of 9 and 7th out of 7

How is this possible ?

Good Point Bill, how does Gman have the same points as me with worse results? Maybe he has more knockouts or something??

I didnt check his knockouts, will do now tho

Here's what I've figured out. There is one place that gets points for every 3 playing and the point amount is based on the total playing. 3rd of 9 gets pts.... if 7 play, only the top 2 get pts.

Hope this helps.

Bill,

From what I see, there is no anomoly. Both have a 3rd of 9 and both have a non-points finish. KO's don't add to the point totals for a game. They're position based and based on the number of players.

If 7 play, then the top 2 get points.. all the rest get 0.

Here are some examples of the points distribution.

If 5 play, winner gets 3, rest get 0
If 6 play, winner gets 3.51, second gets 2.59, rest get 0
If 7 play, winner gets 4.1, second gets 2.9, rest get 0
If 8 play, winner gets 4.69, second gets 3.31, rest get 0
If 9 play, winner gets 3.94, second gets 2.79, third gets 2.27, rest get 0
If 10 play, winner gets 4.38, second gets 3.1, third gets 2.53, rest get 0

Hope this helps.

From what i can see this still doesn't answer why Gman has the same points as me with worse results...

Ok, ok i see what the story is now, it doesn't matter that i finished 3 /7 and he fin 7 / 7, both them results carry the same score, ZERO....

Duh.... lol..

Brian,

He has IDENTICAL results to you.
A 3rd of 9, for 2.27 points... and a Zero.
Your 3rd of 7 and his 7th of 7 are identical... neither was a high enough finish to get points.

You have a 2.27 and a 0, so your total is 2.27.
Gman has a 2.27 and a 0, so his total is 2.27.
