Hey all,

So, I’m trying to create a good poker league base, to track our friendly poker club results.
I’m the only editor and I’m thinking about creating forms to allow other to enlist themselves to tournaments, I’ll create.

So far, the base structure is:

  • Players - personal info about the players in the club, such as name, phone number etc…
  • Tournaments - list of the tournaments with date, properties etc…
  • Leaderboard - as the name suggests, a leaderboard. who earned the most
  • Balance - supposed to be a running balance. deposits by players and money sent to winners
  • Results - Name of a tournament and the winners.

Bear in mind, ClubGG (the poker platform we use) doesn’t has an API. so, we input everything manually.

  1. how would track rebuys in realtime? a form with a “+” button that adds +1 in the “rebuy” column ?
  2. What’s the correct way to list the players in each tournament? one line per registered player or one line and a field that lists multiple players?

Thanks.

Hi @Omer_Nesher,

This sounds like a fun project. I’ve created something very similar to track points awarded. You can use the logic in it for the leaderboard and probably even tournaments. Essentially, the logic is you note who won and how many points they received. So, you will need a new table for Players. I imagine Balance would live as a field in the Players table (if I understand what you want correctly) and Results would live as a field or fields in Tournaments. The results would actually feed the Leaderboard.

So, I envision 3 tables (Players, Tournaments, and Leaderboard). I would have to think about buy-ins and rebuys, especially for real time. I imagine it could be done using a form. There are details that would need to be worked out though.
As for tracking players, this would just be a linked field in Tournaments, so it would be one field that shows all players associated with that tournament.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Chris

Hey Chris,

That’s nice!

I’ll share with you my base when it’s done.

Thanks for the help.

Since you're manually inputting everything, tracking rebuys in real-time might be a bit tricky. But using a form with a ""+"" button that adds +1 in the ""rebuy"" column is a good idea. You could also consider adding a column for rebuy amount so that you can keep track of how much players are spending on rebuys.
By the way, have you checked out link w88? They've got a pretty great online poker platform that you might want to consider using for your league. Their site, has all the info you need to get started. Plus, they offer some sweet bonuses and promotions that could really boost your league's excitement. Give it a look and see if it's a good fit for you.

It's great that you're starting a poker league and tracker! Regarding base design, I think it's important to prioritize user experience and ease of use. You want your players to easily access and use the tracker without any confusion or complications. On a related note, have you tried logging into bro 138 login? They have a user-friendly interface that makes navigating and playing your favorite casino games easy. If you're looking for inspiration for your tracker design, it might be worth checking out their site to see what elements work well. Good luck with your poker league!

If you need additional information or notes about individual players in specific tournaments, you can include a field for multiple players.

Creating a poker league base sounds like a fun project for your poker club! Your initial structure looks pretty solid, covering players, tournaments, leaderboard, balance, and results. To address your questions:
1. Tracking rebuys in real-time: Using a form with a "+ button" to increment the "rebuy" column is a practical approach. It allows for easy and quick input during tournaments.
2. Listing players in each tournament: It depends on your preference and how detailed you want the records to be.
While you're busy organizing your poker league, you can take a break and explore some best slot games. Good luck with your poker league, and I hope it brings lots of excitement to your club!
