PokerStars TLB – Tournament Leader Board

TLB PokerStars - Tournament LeaderboardThe 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.

  • Weekly PokerStars TLB – The weekly leaderboard sums your top 10 best results from the week, defined as the time period in between Midnight ET on Sunday and 11:59 PM on Saturday. The winner gets to take on a member of Team PokerStars in a heads-up match the following weekend. The TLB gets to choose the game, and the prize pool will be seeded with $1000—but the money carries over from week to week if the Team Pro wins, so there might actually be several thousand at stake.
  • Monthly PokerStars TLB – The monthly leaderboard takes your best 20 results of the month into account. Cash prizes totaling $30,000 are paid out every month, with the top finisher getting $5,000. In addition, the top 1,000 players will receive entry to the monthly $20,000 TLB freeroll.
  • Yearly PokerStars TLB – The yearly leaderboard tracks your top 100 tournament finishes of the year. The three highest finishers at the end of the year will take home a PokerStars Passport with 5, 3, or 2 stamps in order of finish. Each stamp on the Passport is good for entry into any PokerStars sponsored event on the EPT or APPT. It can also purchase entry to the WSOP Main Event. Past TLB winners have included Shuan Deeb and Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy.

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.
