INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Enter the Playing Bankroll. For non-rebuy tournaments, this is the total number of chips you start with. For single rebuy tournaments, this the total number of starting chips, plus the chips obtained with your one rebuy. For multiple rebuy tournaments, this is the total number of starting chips, plus the chips obtained with one rebuy, unless multiple rebuys are allowed while you still have your starting chips. If an add-on is allowed for all players, then add the add-on chips also to the starting chips and rebuy chips to calculate your playing bankroll. 2. Enter "Y" or "N" to answer the questions on whether this is a rebuy tournament and/or an online tournament. 3. Enter the blind structure. For blind levels with no ante, enter "0" or leave ante space blank. You must enter the number of minutes in the blind level for each level separately. 4. As you fill in the structure, you will note the patience factor changing as each level of data is completed. You may stop entering data when the "Minutes Spent in Level" column entry starts to read 0.00. At this point, the Patience factor will also stop rising,

and voil, you have the Patience Factor! [See The Poker Tournament Formula by Arnold Snyder for a complete discussion of patience factors and skill levels, as well as information online at www.pokertournamentformula.com.]
