Poker League Point System

Our monthly poker game is thinking about instituting some sort of points system to track a winner for the year. We were thinking of something like 5 points for first, 4 for second and so on, or (#players – finish position). But I’d like something that has the points increase at a more exponential rater as the number of players and your finishing position increase.

PokerStars tournament leader board formula is kind of what I am looking for. Our buy-in is constant so we could drop the last part of the formula to make it easier.

Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]

n is the number of entrants
k is the place of finish (k=1 for the first-place finisher, and so on)
b is the buy-in amount in dollars

Does anyone know of a better system for allocating points for a poker league?

I use (n+1-r)+(n/r)
n=# of players
r= rank
I have a graph of it here...
