Amount of chips at table

Postby Demented » Thu Jun 04, 2009 11:29 pm

Would it be possible to have a little status bar somewhere on the game client that has the total chips in play at the table, and total chips in play beneath it if it is a multi-table tournament? Possibly also something that will show the percentage of the chips you have.

Player has 500 chips
Ex:
Chips in play: 13500
Chips at table: 500
% of chips: 3.7%

It would be great if this is possible.

You can get the total chips from the Options|General Info page just by multiplying starting chips by entrants. That number doesn't change. But I might consider doing what the big sites do and show the largest, average, and smallest chip stacks, which is generally more valuable than knowing your percentage of the total chips.

Chip counts in a ring game are mostly irrelevant, since each player determined how many chips they brought in (between the min and max allowable) and can rebuy all day and leave at any time. So your percentage of the total has no real meaning and the lobby window already displays all the counts in a sortable list. Stack management is much more important in a tournament with the increasing blinds and the winner-take-all structure.
