The Tournament Leaderboard will keep track of points that players will earn for entering in any one of Golden Nugget's Poker Tournaments. Additional points will be awarded to those players who finish "in the money". Players will earn one (1) point for each tournament entry and re-entry fee purchased and will earn additional points if they finish "in the money". The calculation of points earned for "finishing in the money" will be based on the number of winners paid.
Example: Paying 5 spots
- 1st Place will earn 1 point for entering the tournament, plus 5 points x 2 for a total of 11 points.
- 2nd Place will earn 1 point for entering the tournament plus 4 points x 2 for a total of 9 points.
- 3rd Place will earn 1 point for entering the tournament plus 3 points x 2 for a total of 5 points.
- 5th Place will earn 1 point for entering the tournament plus 1 point x 2 for a total of 3 points.
