Full Tilt Announces Changes To The Monthly Edge Leaderboards
Full Tilt announced on a blog titled Changes to the Monthly Edge Leaderboards that there will be new changes on how the leaderboards will work beginning on July 1. Unfortunately, the changes are not so great for the players as the room will feature fewer leaderboards and reward less players.
Some of the changes include consolidating different types of games into the same leaderboard, thus eliminating some of the leaderboards players are used to competing on. Some other leaderboards, such as All Heads-Up Sit & Go, Heads-Up Ring Games and Other Ring Games will be fully removed.
Additionally, Full Tilt will be removing the Edge Status Bump leaderboard prizes for players finishing in positions 4th-25th.
Learn more on the Full Tilt Blog about the changes to the Monthly Edge leaderboards.

Reading the blog will help you understand the ideal situations when to bluff on one or multiple streets.
