I've made this foremost to toy around with SNG bubble situations. I think the bubble factor concept is very useful - it quantifies something previously intuitive. Get it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?6tnjfm0j2d0 Feel free to improve on the script.

You input payout structure and stacksizes - it calculates ICM and Bubble Factor (cost of losing divided by gain of winning against a certain stack). This concept is introduced in Kill Everyone. The scipt itself is a learning tool - you can play around with different scenarios to see how the presence of different stacks should influence your decisions on the bubble.

Looks good! You should post this on the overcards.com AHK wiki page.

ok. so if you're stack 3, you read across, and it says gogogo against stack 1, gogo against stack2, and stay the f*** out of stack4's way.

yeah in not so many words

Basically the book talks about "tournament odds". In order to play a pot against a stack against whom you have a bubble factor of for example 2 .00 you need to divide your pot odds by 2.00 to get your tournament odds.

The interesting thing is how the presence of shorties really skyrockets the medium stacks bf vs. bigstacks etc.

Nice job

I added a link on the main overcards.com AutoHotkey page, and added you to the NoSpammers list so you should be able to edit the main page in the future. Hopefully this works, I can't be sure since you are the only "NoSpammer" with a space in your name.

 02-08-2008, 01:34 PM #12 Pooh-Bah   Join Date: Apr 2007 Posts: 5,248 Re: New AHK script: Bubble Factor Calculator I've been thinking about this and it would be a really useful HUD. Don't know how hard it is to make a HUD for something like this, but I'd pay a lot for this. I imagine other sit&go players would be interested too.

I would like to extend the calculator to 6 players and imagine that somewhere around 6 is where a hud might come in handy too. With more players left

a, the numbers aren't as interesting
b, the no of calculations skyrockets.

This hud would only display Your BF vs. the other remaining though, right?

I would like something like this as well. Nanochip has some really nice user-config overlays in FTS...I don't think I could make this work though.

Yea, it'd be great if the calculator could do more than 4 players (even if it isn't made into a HUD).

Yes, I would want the HUD to recognize my stack and the other stacks and show me the BF vs. the remaining players.

It doesn't sound like it should be that difficult (for someone who knows how to do this stuff).

If anyone else is interested, post below so maybe someone will be interested in making this.

Although this would seem to cross the line in to "Realtime EV calculators" - a direction I'm not sure is either desirable at large or permitted in use...
