This is a discussion on Hold'em tourny software within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Does anyone know of any software that helps manage a home tourny. I host/play an annual Hold'em tournament.
It would be great to run
Tournament Director is great but it may be overkill for a once a year tourney.

Tournament Director, hands down. You get an unlimited 30 day trial, so it'll cover your home tourney and then you don't have to worry about it again for a year.
I've used it several times, including for a 50 seat charity tournament and it was a breeze to set up. Chip allocation section can also help you figure out how you want to split up chips, etc.

*another vote for Tournament Director being a fantastic piece of software*
A couple of the companies I deal for use it for bar games and corporate functions. Dead simple to use, never found it to be lacking in options, no complaints really. It might be overkill buying it just for a single home game, but if you're going to use it regularly (or if you're just using the 30 day trial) then you could do worse.
