  • Scoring System

    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.umbup: John (JWK24)

          How can your monthly Leaderboard be relied on, when there is this anamoly ?

            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.

                  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.
