What it Is
A ranking system on PokerStars that counts a player's highest finishes in poker tournaments. Tournament results are assigned a point value and total scores are determined based on those points:
The weekly TLB tracks a player's 10 best finishes. The weekly TLB winner plays a PokerStars Pro heads-up in a $1k freeroll.
The monthly TLB counts a player's 20 highest point scores. The winner receives $5,000 in cash.
The yearly TLB includes players' 100 highest scores and awards the winner a package of tournament buyins that is worth approximately $70K.
