Multi Table Tournament Leader Boards At PokerStars
Wednesday, 6. January 2010

PokerStars is the biggest online poker room by far; as such, it should come as no surprise that they are also home to the biggest and best online poker tournaments in the world. The Multi Table Tournament Leader Boards are PokerStars’ way of letting players show that they are amongst the best tournament players in the online poker world.

Each time a player places in the top 15% of a regular multi table tournament, they are awarded Tournament Leader Board (TLB) points. The number of TLB points earned in a tournament is determined by the buy in of the tournament, the number of entries in the tournament and the place the player finished therein. PokerStars hosts three different multi table tournament leader boards: the Weekly Leader Board, the Monthly Leader Board and the Yearly Leader Board.

In determining a player’s position in the Weekly Tournament Leader Board, the top 10 results of all of the tournaments that they played between 12:00 AM ET Sunday and 11:59:59 PM ET the following Saturday are considered. The player with the most TLB points over the course of the week gets the opportunity to play a member of Team PokerStars Pro in a heads up match in the game of their choice. The match itself takes place the Sunday immediately following the week the player topped the leaderboard at 14:00 ET. The Weekly Tournament Leader Board final match has a prize pool that begins at $1,000 and increases by $1,000 each consecutive week the Team PokerStars wins.

In determining a player’s position in the Monthly Tournament Leader Board, the top 20 results of all of the tournaments that they played between 12:00 AM ET on the first of the month and 11:59:59 PM ET on the last day of that same month are considered. Players finishing in the top 200 of the Monthly Tournament Leader Board share $30,000 in cash prizes with the player in the top position claiming $5,000. Moreover, the top 1,000 position holders each receive a ticket to the $20,000 Monthly TLB freeroll.

In determining a player’s position in the Yearly Tournament Leader Board, the top 100 results of all of the tournaments that they played in between 12:00 AM ET on January 1st and 11:59:59 PM ET on the following December 31st are considered. The player taking the top spot on the leader board wins a five stamp PokerStars Passport that includes buy ins, hotel accommodations and spending money for five major live PokerStars sponsored tournaments. Players taking the second and third spots in the leader board win three stamp and two stamp PokerStars Passports, respectively.

Whether you are a laid back player with a week to spare or a hardcore pro player with the bankroll and time to match, PokerStars has a Tournament Leader Board for you.
