Freshman Leader Board

PokerStars Learn is always looking to initiate new players into tournament poker, and the Freshman Leader Board is a great way to test your newly learned skills in a regular format against other beginners.

By playing free tournaments you can climb the Leader Board and win your share of a T$2,500 prize pool and get some valuable practice along the way.

If you’re new to PokerStars (joined in the last 90 days) then you can claim your Freshman Ticket right now by entering the Star Code ‘FRESHMAN’ in your client.

Essential reading for this contest would be the Poker Basics Course and the Multi-Table Tournament Course, both of which will help you get ready for poker tournament action.

*The formula considers two elements. First, the number of players in the tournament (“k”). Second, the final position of the player in the tournament (“n”). Considering “n” is 1 for the winner, “n” is 2 for the runner up, and so.

When the position in the tournament (“n”) is less than or equal to 25% of the players in the tournament (“k”), that is, n  ≤  k/4, the formula will be:

The number 10 multiplied by the square root of the value “k” and divided by the square root of the value “n”.

When the position in the tournament (“n”) is greater than 25% of the players in the tournament (“k”), that is, n> k/4, the formula will be:

The number 5 multiplied by the square root of the value “k” and divided by the square root of the value “n”.

In all cases, the calculation of points is rounded to two decimal places in each tournament.
