The PokerStars Tournament Leader Board tracks the success of tournament players on PokerStars over the course of the week, month, and year. Players earn leader board points every time they finish in the top 15% of a multi-table tournament. Sit & Gos with fewer than 40 entrants, satellites, shootouts, VIP freerolls, private tournaments, and heads-up tournaments do not count towards the leader board.
You can check the standings of the weekly, monthly, and yearly TLB races in the PokerStars software under “Requests” menu.
The exact formula for awarding tournament leader board points is as follows:
Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]
Where n is the number of entrants, k is the place of finish, and b is the buy-in amount in USD.
And just in case you haven’t brushed up on your logarithms recently, you can use this handy spreadsheet supplied by PokerStars to plug in your tournament results to see how many points you get.
