This may be a very very stupid question, or it may be the profoundest since the contemplation of the meaning of life the Universe and Everything,

The Question is this :- The TOTAL number of players listed at the top of the Leaderboard is 71,754, HOWEVER, vovo1961 is listed as last place 71,332 with a score of 1,250.71. WHERE are the other 418 Players ?

You don't need five to be on the Leaderboard, you only need five to be qualified for payouts.

Sorry Annie, but ties won't make a lick of difference to the last place position number.

Consider: two people have same points at position 78, that just means that there is no 79th position, the next position number will be 80.

the extra players missing maybe the multi accounters who have been banned, and the total number of players hasnt been updated maybe.

Sorry Bill - you're absolutely right.

On a related note, the leaderboard is a bit wonky. Looking at page 1435 at the 7:17 ET update, the 1st five players/scores are ranked;

71277 1392.14
71294 1391.97
71278 1391.81
71279 1391.68
71280 1390.37

You need to check other people on the board, there are quite a few with only one tournament participation.

It is quite easy to do, just hover your cursor over the area where you would see the qualified check.

Hey mummergirl, try using a copy and paste of the players name..maybe from a hand history while you're playing with them.
If you don't know how to get the hand history, let us know and we'll help ya' out.
