Option for Add-on and chip amount to differ from re-buy

Post by DoubleEagle »

My players would like to see an option where I can set up a tournament with the add-on purchase to be less than the re-buy amount and/or have the number of chips greater than the re-buy amount.

I personally am not a big fan of add-ons but my group of players love them for some reason. Having the option to make the number of add-on chips greater than the re-buy amount or setting the add-on purchase price less than the re-buy amount helps assure everyone will take the add-on. With the re-buy and add-on the same it results in some players not taking the add-on.

You can already set the "Add-on chips". They are typically more than the starting/rebuy chips (2000 vs 1500 is typical).

Kent,

Allowing the three different ways to add chips independently would increase Tourney structure abilities:

Buy in = X $$ amount and starting stacks
Rebuys for different amounts with different chips stacks(not allowed)
Addons for different amounts with different chip stacks (semi-already allowed)

This scenario is a bit odd, but very typically used in fundraiser type events. I am hosting a Toys for Tots type event where I want to make the initial buy in a low starting stack and use the rebuys and addons to increase the pot in the FEE which would be the donation.

$25 buy in = $15 prize pool +$10 for toy = $5k starting stack
$15 rebuy= $10 prize pool +$5 for toy = $7k in chips
$15 add on= $5 prize pool +$10 for toy = $20K more

this is an odd example, but would be nice to be able to have this ability.
thanks

+1 Please allow add-on amount to be different from Re-buy amount. We run a 40 buy-in, 40 re-buy, 20 add-on tournament we can't do on PM given the restriction.
