Straights and Flushes Win You Leaderboard Prizes at bet365 Poker
Table Of Contents
No-Limit Hold'em players love making straights and flushes because these holdings are usually strong enough to win the pot they're involved in. Bet365 Poker's players also love winning cash game hands with straights and flushes because doing so can result in them walking away with up to €500 cash at the end of the week.
The Straight and Flushes Leaderboards are exclusive to bet365 Poker players who get their grind on at No-Limit Hold'em Premium Tables. Those Premium Tables are only open to bet365 Poker players and are hidden from other skins on the iPoker Network.
As the promotion's name suggests, the aim of the Straights and Flushes Leaderboards is to win No-Limit Hold'em cash game hands while holding a straight or a flush. Bet365 awards crucial leaderboard points each time you win at showdown with a straight or flush, with those points multiplied depending on the stakes played and the time of day; more on those soon.
The leaderboards are split into Low and High categories. Play €0.05/€0.10, €0.10/€0.20, and €0.25/€0.50 to earn points for the Low leaderboard, and Premium Tables games with blinds of €0.50/€1, €1/€2, and €2/€4 for the High board.
The Low leaderboard pays 50 places, with prizes ranging from €5 to €200, while the High leaderboard pays cash prizes of €25 to €500 to the top 25 points earners each week.

Straights and Flushes Leaderboard Points
You earn Straights and Flushes Leaderboard points by playing No-Limit Hold'em cash games at bet365 Poker's Premium Tables. Please note: playing on heads-up tables does not earn any points.
Only your first 1,000 hands count towards your points total, and those hands include those that are folded preflop. However, it is possible to reset your weekly total up to 99 times during the week, which runs from 10:00 a.m. GMT on Monday through 9:59 a.m. GMT the following Monday.
Any points you earn between the hours of 4:00 p.m. GMT and 8:00 p.m. GMT each day are automatically doubled, so it pays to hit the tables during that four-hour period.
In addition, points earned while playing €0.10/€0.20 or €1/€2 are multiplied by 1.25x, and points earned at €0.25/€0.50 and €2/€4 tables are multiplied by 1.5x.
|Winning Hand||Points Awarded|
|Straight up to 8s||4|
|Hearts or Spades flush||4|
|Straight up to a king||3|
|Clubs or diamonds flush||3|
In the event of an unlikely tie, the player who earns their leaderboard points first is deemed the winner. The early bird catches the worm, as they say.
