Tournament Calculator


The Poker Tournament Comparison Calculator

I developed a formula and spreadsheet workbook to compare the relative value of poker tournaments to a player, based on the blinds structures, buy-in amounts, house fees, starting chips and other factors. The Poker Tournament Comparison Calculator is free to download and free to use. Optionally, if you find the PTCC useful to you, then please make a donation below. (Note: Anyone like to make phone apps? Contact me if you are interested in making the PTCC into a phone app, with additional features.)

The PTCC workbook (xls format), preloaded with worksheets* for all the Tampa Bay area poker rooms including daily and monthly tournaments, as well as special tournament series.

*Note: As the tournament buy-ins and structures are always in flux at the poker rooms, the sample and pre-loaded worksheets may need to be updated for the latest. Use the worksheet tabs at the bottom of the workbook to navigate among the different pre-loaded worksheets.

Donate (optional):

I’ve preset the fixed donation amount to $20.00, as this is the minimum price that I would ask if I were selling the PTCC to my friends. Please add any additional amount you choose if you feel it is worth more. I leave it up to you to set your own price for the PTCC based on its value to you.

Your total amount is : 20.00 (Currency: USD)
