New Beta Leaderboard, Holiday Schedule

Changes to the Beta Leaderboard
Now that we have a few weeks of Beta 2 promotions in the books, we’re making some changes in the way the Sit & Go Leaderboard works.

In the current incarnation of the Leaderboard, players are rated strictly on the number of points accumulated. Beginning Monday, December 23, we’re moving the Leaderboard to a League format. Here is how you qualify and win:

  1. To qualify for the Leaderboard each week, you must play at least 50 Sit & Go tournaments.
  2. Each tournament you win earns you seven (7) points and each tournament in which you finish second earns you three (3) points.
  3. Your Leaderboard rank is the average of your scores across all of the Sit & Go tournaments you play. Let’s say you play a total of 60 SNGs and you take first place in 10 and second place in 8. Your average is calculated as follows:
  • First place finishes: 10 * 7 points for each = 70
  • Second place finishes: 8 * 3 points for each = 24
  • Average: (70+24)/60 = 94/60 = 1.57 ranking points

The winners of the Leaderboard each week are the five qualifying players with the highest averages. As a reminder, payouts for the Sit & Go Leaderboard are:

1st: 2.0 ETH
2nd: 1.5 ETH
3rd: 1.0 ETH
4th: 0.5 ETH
5th: 0.25 ETH

Reminder that we announce both the final Leaderboard results and the winner of the weekly 2 ETH drawing each Wednesday, unless the Security Team needs more time for review. We always announce these results in the Telegram channel.

Beta 2 Survey
You should have received an email link to a survey about your experiences to date with the Beta 2. Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey and we will enter you in a drawing for 1 ETH. If you didn’t receive the survey, email and we’ll send you a link.

Holiday Schedule
Virtue Poker will operate on a reduced schedule from 21 December 2019 through 5 January 2020. We will still run Bust-a-Host tables, but on a limited schedule. Support will operate on a skeleton staff, so response times may be slower. Our Telegram channel will operate as usual — if you are not already a member, click here to join our channel.

Along those same lines: In order to ensure that everyone, including our Support Team, gets some time to celebrate the holidays, payments for Bust-a-Host, Leaderboard and Weekly Drawing wins will be made once weekly, as follows:

Saturday, 28 Dec: all wins from 21–27 Dec
Saturday, 4 Jan: all wins from 28 Dec-3 Jan
