First is to understand that some types are COUNTS and others are CURRENCY. Opty Created is a count, an integer. Pipeline is a currency. In Marketo, the currency will conform to your admin locale settings.
The reason the Tradeshow received all credit is because Margo was not associated with a role in the opportunity. No role, no credit.
