      PGT Season 2 Leaderboard Point System Explained

      The race for the PGT Season 2 – INR 12 Lacs POY has just begun and leading the lot is Team Mentor – Aditya ‘Intervention’ Agarwal. The Team Mentors have decided to exclude themselves from the POY Race. In a statement Intervention clarified “Rohit, Raman and I will not be eligible for the POY freeroll so as to avoid conflict of interests. We feel organizers should not be competing in their own tourny series POY (after all they decide the structure, schedule, buyins, points system etc). Hopefully we will be starting this trend and more organizers will follow.”

      Top 10 Leaderboard Standings after PGT February Edition:

      Name / Points
      1. Aditya Agarwal 620
      2. Vinay Suchede 411

      PGT Leaderboard Point System Explained:

      All in-the-money finishers at each of the featured events from the 6 PGT Season 2 Tournament Series will be awarded tournament points.

      The formula used to determine the total points awarded to a player (in the money) for any given tournament is:
      Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]
      n is the number of entrants
      k is the place of finish (k=1 for the first-place finisher, and so on)
      b is the average buy-in amount in INR (excluding entry fee). For re-buys and re-entry tournaments, Average Buy-in = Total prizepool/no. of participants
      (Formula Courtesy PokerStars Tournament Ranking System)

      Top 10 players on the PGT Season 2 Leaderboard at the end of the Season will be invited for an exclusive INR 12 Lacs Freeroll . The points on the leaderboard will decide the starting stack of each player with the leader getting a distinct chip advantage. In addition to this, the PGT Player of the Year will be invited to join the PokerGuru pro Team along with an online staking deal.

      The next PGT Season 2 Event will be held at Casino Royale (Goa) from 15th-18th March. For details and registration visit the PokerGuru Tour page. Incase of any clarifications email us at [email protected] or call us at +91-9332320067

      Goa based Husain Lakda has climbed on top of the PGT Season 2 leaderboard and though he is on the no. 2 spot behind team mentor Raman Gujral, the non eligibility of the team mentors effectively puts him in the lead. A place in the top 10 on the leaderboard is still up for grabs with 3 events left in the season.
