Leaderboard points are calculated by the following formula:
Leaderboard points = f * sqrt (Prize pool / k), where
- f = 2 if you’ve taken first place in a tournament.
- f = 1.5 if you’ve played at the final table of a tournament.
- f = 1 if you’ve entered the ITM zone of an event.
- f = 0.5 if you’ve busted on the bubble.
Last year, there was a serious mistake made in calculations. First, Daniel Negreanu became the winner of the race, and later, the WSOP representatives reported that they had made a mistake, and this title went to Robert Campbell.
How do you think, will Negreanu be able to enter the top 5 best players of the series this year? Or, maybe, he'll become the Leaderboard Winner?
