Pokerfest Leaderboards

Not for players from the UK so I’ll be brief…
Every time you play in a Pokerfest Championship tournament you’ll be awarded leaderboard points on one of the three leaderboards, depending on the amount of your buy-in.

Low: $1 – $5
Medium: $10 – $50
High: $100 and up

If you’ve placed in the top 10 of any of the three leaderboards on 2nd November you’ll get a prize. These range from from a $1100 WPT500 package down to a token worth $50.
