The PokerStars monthly Multi-Table Tournament Leader Board lets you show that you're one of the best local MTT players in India.

Every time you place in the top 15% of a regular multi-table tournament, you will be awarded Tournament Leader Board (TLB) points. The amount of points varies depending on the buy-in of the tournament, the number of entries and the position in which you finish (for a more detailed explanation of the tournament ranking system, please click below).

To check out the latest rankings at any time simply login to PokerStars and chose '**Tools** > **Leader Boards** > **Tournament Leader Board' **on our desktop** **or** 'More > Leader Boards' **on iOS and Android.

The monthly Tournament Leader Board takes your best 20 results from all of the tournaments played between 00:00 IST on the first day of the month and 23:59 IST on the last day of the month.

The players that finish in the top 120 of the monthly Leader Board will share a total of T₹ 5 Lacs in prizes, with first place claiming T₹ 110,000.

Here's how it works: The top 15% of finishers in each event will receive points towards the monthly Tournament Leader Board standings, based on the number of entrants, the tournament buy-in, and place of finish.

**Please Note: **Satellite tournaments, Sit & Go tournaments with less than 40 players, heads-up tournaments, shootout tournaments, restricted-entry tournaments, private tournaments, play money tournaments and Stars Rewards Freerolls **do not count** towards the rankings.

Only your 20 best results will be counted for the monthly rankings.

The formula used to determine the total points awarded to a player (in the top 15% of finishers) for any given tournament is:

Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]

Where:

**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 buy-in amount in INR (excluding entry fee). For freerolls the buy-in is Rs. 0, and for FPP tournaments 1 FPP is counted as Rs. 0.0161.

Example 1: A player takes third place in a Rs. 20 tournament with a field of 150 players. Here:

n = 150, k = 3, b = 20

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]

= 10 * [sqrt(150)/sqrt(3)] * [1+log(20+0.25)]

= 10 * sqrt(50) * (1+1.31)

= 10 * 7.071 * 2.31

= 163.09 (rounded up)

Example 2: A player takes 25th place in a freeroll with a field of 900 players. Here:

n = 900, k = 25, b = 0

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(b+0.25)]

= 10 * [sqrt(900)/sqrt(25)] * [1+log(0+0.25)]

= 10 * sqrt(36) * [1+(-0.60206)]

= 10 * 6 * 0.39794

= 23.88 (rounded up)
