The League – Scores, Leaderboard and Tickets
Is your name on this month's LEADERBOARD? Start playing today and earn your share of prizes every month. Plus, if you've never made a deposit on PokerStars, you may be eligible for a fantastic FIRST DEPOSIT OFFER!

The League uses a scoring system to determine Leader Board positions that is both easy to understand and fair to all players. Here's how it works:


Every time you play in a tournament in The League you will accumulate points. The simple scoring formula only considers how many players are in a tournament, and your finishing position at the end of it, to determine what points are awarded.

Points = 10 * sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)


"n" is the number of players that participated in the tournament. "k" Your position in the tournament. (Winner =1)

Leader Board:

Players can play in as many tournaments as they wish however at the Masters level only their best 12 tournament results each month will count towards their Leader Board position at the end of each month.

At the Initiation level only their best 6 tournament results each month will count towards their Leader Board position.
