PokerRoom.com has launched two separate tournament leaderboards, the Aces of Aces and Centurion Cup, it was recently announced.
The leaderboards were created in order to rank and reward poker players across the globe based on their tournament performance. Competing players will be given prize money incentives and a forum to showcase their poker skills.
The Aces of Aces leaderboard ranks players across twelve scheduled Multi-table Tournaments each month, with a $5,000 first prize awarded to the top finisher on the leaderboard. The twelve $150 + $12 tournaments are standard, stand-alone events and boast an exclusive new scoring system. PokerRoom.com player participation in the leaderboard is free and automatic, and will provide players with a new opportunity to win the $5,000 first prize each month. Lesser buy-in qualifiers are running. Players who perform exceptionally well will also have the opportunity to win a free trip and entrance into the World Series of Poker with Team PokerRoom.com.
The Centurion Cup weekly tournament leaderboard has been created for those players who prefer a fast-paced, intense and instantly rewarding feature. It ranks players based on 10-table Sit & Go Tournaments (one hundred players in each) that will run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Similar to the Ace of Aces leaderboard, each performance in the tournaments will be scored and ranked. The top three ranked players each week will win money from a bonus prize pool generated by a percentage of the fee paid by all entrants into Centurion Cup tournaments. The top ten players will be invited into a special weekly winner-takes-all Coliseum Sit & Go Final in which the winner will take home the other half of the bonus prize pool. By winning the Centurion Cup leaderboard and the following Coliseum Final, a player will be crowned the PokerRoom.com Centurion Champion. The buy-in for the 10-table Centurion tournaments will range from $5 + $0.75 to $20 + $3. All tournaments are stand-alone events featuring regular payouts.
