I have a set of users who have won a game
('jim', 12), ('james', 54), ('john', 76), ('dave', 22), ('garry', 34), ('stuart', 16)
I want to award them a share of points based on their position in the game on a sliding scale. The 'global pot' is $100 and I would like the winner to get the most with other users getting less based on a sliding scale to their position.
Would anyone know of a 'scoring' algorithm to do this...? Similar to ones used in poker but with a fixed pot.
