Tournament Leader Boards
PartyPoker is the place for Sit & Go and Multi-table Tournaments thanks to its weekly and monthly leaderboards that add a new level of competitiveness to the games. Can you prove you have real skill and talent?
Each week between 00:00 ET Monday until 23:59ET Sunday your play in tournaments counts towards the weekly leader boards where the overall winner will walk away with $600 in cash and a $1,000 Tournament Leader Board (TLB) Freeroll entry while those players finishing in positions second through 10th will walk away with a seat in the $200,000 Guaranteed Sunday tournament and a $1,000 TLB Freeroll entry. Finish in places 11th through 50th and you will be entered into the $1,000 TLB Freeroll also.
These prizes are superb, but it's the monthly leaderboards that yield the most value and the biggest prizes as you can see in the screen shots below:
