GB Poker Club - Points System

Top 8 players on the night get awarded points as follows:

Points Available
Finishing Position 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th
Points Earned 40 32 24 20 16 12 8 4

9th down all get 2 points, and everyone can earn 1 bonus point for registering on time and another 1 bonus point for bringing or memorizing their membership number.

The Points are added to the database when the results are recorded.

When you look at the Player Leaderboard the web site gathers all the data. First it takes every recorded result between the season start and end dates, it then groups those by player, and then for each player it groups them by venue.

That gives us a final Point tally for every player at every venue they played in, it also gives us the numbers needed to calculate the average number of players at each venue and across the league as a whole.

The Points from your best venue are then multiplied by the sum of that venue's average and the overall average, to give you your Weighted Points

eg: You score 270 points in venue A and 320 points in venue B. Venue A has an average of 10.4 players and venue B has an average of 19.2 players.
The overall average is therefore 14.8 (10.4+19.2 รท 2 = 14.8).

So your best venue (B) has it's Points converted to Weighted Points like this:
320 x (19.2 + 14.8) = 10,880

You then get awarded an additional 100 points for EVERY game you've played across all venues, so lets say you played 11 games at 'A' and 13 games at 'B', that would give you:

(11 + 13) x 100 = 2400

This is then added to your weighted Points:

10880 + 2400 = 13,280

Then rounded up to the nearest 100, so your starting stack will be 13,280 rounded up to 13,300 chips.

But because we want everyone to have a good game we add another 2500 chips to everyones stack to make sure we get a good deepstacked game. So you actually end up with:

13,300 + 2,500 = 15,800 chips to start the finals!!!

There are a couple of things to be aware of, if you finish ahead of a friend in a venue that is their main venue but not your main venue, you will only see the bonus 100 chips added whilst they will see the 100 plus their finishing position points etc.

Secondly, the averages change throughout the season especially in the first few weeks, this does affect the stacks throughout the season as the calculation is done live every time it is viewed. It's for that reason that the offical starting stacks are only announced after the last game of the season has been played, as a drastic change in the turn out of that game could be enough to change the average and potentially therefore every other players stack.

If you go to the Player Leaderboard and hover your mouse over the column headers of the table a pop up will appear explaining how that column is calculated.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us for clarification.
