There are three criteria when calculating points:

  1. Place Finished
    Players receive points only if they are in the money. If a tournament pays only five places, only the top five players get points.
  2. Amount of the buy-in
  3. Number of entrants

Total points are calculated by multiplying the point factors of the three criteria:

Place finished

The top 10 players receive points in field size less than 400. The top 20 receive points for fields from 400-799. The top 30 receive points for field of 800+

Players making deals which alter prize payouts will have further allocation of bonus APOY Leaderboard points suspended.

The buy-in in rebuy tournaments are calculated by dividing the total gross prize pool by the number of entrants.

Please Note: Conversion rate for purpose of determining buy-in amount will be locked at 5 PHP-to-1 HKD; 125 KRW-to-1 HKD

Number of entrants

100-1493 points
150-1994 points

200-204 entries is 4.1 points. Then each grouping of 10 entries increases the number of points by 0.1. For example: 205-214 entries is 4.2 points, 215-224 entries is 4.3 points and so forth. The maximum points awarded for Entries factor is 10 (which occurs at grouping 785-794 entries).

Here is a hypothetical total point calculation example:

You finished in 3rd place in a $5,000 buy-in event that had 120 entrants.

You receive 80 points for 3rd; the buy-in is $5,000, which is a 2.5-point event; and there are 120 entrants, which is good for 3 points.

Thus, you receive 600 total points (80 x 2.5 x 3= 600).
