To automatically assign seating arrangements and award attendance points when swiping in and to record placement points when they swipe out of the tournament.
Once the game has started and the cutoff time has taken place the next "action" is players would swipe out with points being awarded to 10th place down to 1st place. If a player forgot to swipe out, the tournament director could simply "skip" that position from the computer and the next player out could just swipe their card and be in the proper position.
Swiping in records name, location and date of play. Automatically assigns player seating assignments on connected TV display. Swiping out records their final placement position. Automatically assigns points in relation to placement. These positions and points automatically updated to my website koalatpoker.com.
I have an example of the leaderboard on my website www.koalatpoker.com. It is a leaderboard that I use from a website pokerleaderboard.com. I would like to see if you could develop one for me that is practically identical, or if you could somehow use the same one as part of this whole process.
On the large tv display screen I have a poker blind timer. It displays the time and the blind levels. It beeps at 1 minute, 30 seconds and every second starting at the final 10 seconds until a loud horn blows at zero. I use freepokerclock.com for my blind timer.
I envision a sort of split screen where maybe the top portion will always have the blind timer and break times displayed. The bottom half will at first have the seating chart arrangements where players can see where their assigned seats are. Maybe have it correspond with either their name or a membership number assigned to them from the card. I would prefer like their last name and first initial AND a number as well. Once the cutoff time comes, where no new players can play, I would like to have advertisements displayed, like our sponsors and our websites and even special announcements that I can type in. They would display like for maybe 10 or 20 seconds or so. But the timer display would need to be big and bright and seen from across a bar on a regular 32 inch or bigger flat screen tv.
We strive to always have internet access at the bars we play at. If not available, I was hoping that maybe this program would be able to save all the information on the computer and once we do get internet access, let's say back at home, that it would automatically upload the stats and points to the website online.
