Sportsbook Poker announces a new tournament player competition for August. The Tourney King promotion will feature leaderboards for Multi Table Tournament players. In a unique twist, there will be two leaderboards. One for buyins of $20 or more and one for lower buyins. The top 50 on both boards get cash and ticket prizes. Also the top 250 in both leaderboards will win entry to a $20,000 tournament. Details are not widely available but I think you get more chips in that tournament for placing higher on the leaderboards.
Below is all the information. There is quite a bit of info, so read it all. this is the perfect promotion for multi table tournament players. I believe more than one Merge Network site is doing this promotion, but I do not think all of them are. I know Carbon Poker is doing it but Feltstars does not appear to be.
Are you the Tourney King?
Over $20,000 to be won
Our quest for 2 new Tourney Kings begins this August here at Sportsbook.com Poker. To show just how serious we are, we’re putting up over $20,000 in cash and prizes along with a crazy new KING accolade that you can show off at the tables.
What do I need to do?
Starting August 1st, play in as many multi-table tournaments as you can. Note that freerolls and sit’n’gos will not count. For every tournament you play you’re eligible to win valuable leaderboard points based on the formula below. Tournaments with more players and bigger buy-ins will award more points than those with few players and cheaper entries.
We’re actually looking for two Kings this summer! We’ll feature a high limit and a low limit leaderboard to satisfy all levels of royalty:
The High Limit Leaderboard
MTT’s with buy-ins of $20 or more will count
The Low Limit Leaderboard
MTT’s with buy-ins up to $20 will count
Players will be allowed to participate in both leaderboards. To view these leaderboards now and to see your current status, click on the ‘Player Admin‘ button on the lobby screen and select ‘Tourney King’.
Over $20,000 in Cash and Prizes
Finish in the Top 250 on either leaderboard and you’ll move on to the final tournament where you could win your share of over $20,000 along with the fame and glory that comes along with being crowned the KING. Both the High Limit and Low Limit finals are set take place on Sunday, September 12th.
To view the payouts for both the High Limit and Low Limit Tournament Finals please see the chart at the bottom of this page.
Calculating Leaderboard Points
Here’s the formula that we’ll be using to calculate your leaderboard points. Only your top 25 results for the month will count towards your leaderboard score:
Buy-in: – Average Buy-in cost for tournament
– Buy-in for R/A tournaments = prizepool / (Entrants + Rebuys + Addons)
Entrants: The total number of players in the tournament
Position: Your final placing in the tournament
Final Table Bonus: Make it to a final table and your point totals will be multiplied by the following:
Multiplier Place FT
1st 1.5 6th 1.35
2nd 1.45 7th 1.35
3rd 1.45 8th 1.3
4th 1.4 9th 1.3
5th 1.4 10th 1.25
To view both leaderboards and your current status, click on the ‘Player Admin‘ button on the lobby screen and select ‘Tourney King’.
