Paddy Power giving away $100k in Tournament Leaderboard Cash
By RTR Dennis
Paddy Power Poker are already well known for running big online tournaments. But now they’re adding even more incentive to play Paddy tournaments by giving away $100k in annual leaderboard cash. The $100,000 in extra prizes will be offered through “Paddy’s Tournament Championship” promotion, and you can find out about the details below.
Every Tournament Counts
It doesn’t matter whether you are an MTT or SNG player because every real money tourney racks up points for the Paddy’s Tournament Championship leaderboards. Points are based on a formula that factors in the buy-in, number of entrants and your finish. So the overall key is to do as well as you can in big tournaments (or any tourney).
Three Different Leaderboards
As we mentioned before, $100,000 will be offered through the annual Paddy’s Tournament Championship. But this isn’t just a single leaderboard race because the promotion actually breaks down into Weekly, Monthly and Yearly boards. Here’s a quick look at the prize pool distribution in each race:
- Weekly Leaderboard – $500 prize pool, first place receives $100, top 30 earn cash, top 100 earn points for the Monthly board.
- Monthly Leaderboard – $2,000 prize pool, first place receives $500, top 75 earn cash, top 100 earn points for the Monthly board.
- Yearly Leaderboard – $50,000 prize pool, first place receives $6,000 Irish Open prize package (and more), top 200 collect cash prizes and a “Super Freeroll” ticket.
The Yearly Leaderboard winner already receives a $6k Irish Open package. But the benefits don’t stop here because they’ll also get “Champion Rewards,” their own bounty tournament, their own Paddy Power blog, and the chance to formally open the Irish Open 2014. In short, the Yearly board winner is going to be transformed into a star!
