After my last 12th place finish I am now ranked 2413. According to the open skill league I have a Tick next to eligable next to my name but im not sure what I am eligable for?

Please advise.

It does say I need to be ranked in the top 2000 for a prize payout, and I need to finish in the top 500 for a ticket to next months Premier skill league.

The check next to your skill league placing under eligible, means that you have completed 5 open league games, and are now eligible for the PRIZE which is highlighted in your placement.

Unfortunately, prizes are only offered to those that finish in places between 1 and 2,000

Hope this is clear for you ?

yes thanks you is there a way to find out when the cut off point is for this months leader board so I know how long I have to get to above 2000?

The Leaderboard runs from the 3rd of the month until the last day of the month.

If you achieve 2,000 points, that will put you above the 2,000th place to get you to the money, but you will need to check previous months Leaderboard places to give you an indication, as to what score you will need to gain maximum payout.

When you log in to the Leaderboard, at the top right of the board there is a button to view previous months.

I hope this is of some help ?

Hi AliBanjali,

Congratulations on finishing 12th! That's no small accomplishment!!

It looks like Bill has answered all your questions. Thanks, Bill! I just wanted to confirm that what was said is correct. The checkmark indicates you have played 5 tourneys and are eligible for a monthly prize should you place high enough in the leaderboard. Each month, the score which you need to place in the top 2000 obviously fluctuates but seems to be in the mid to upper 1800. So if you get 1900, you should be in good position to receive a prize and if you get 2000, you are virtually guaranteed. Additionally for at least the last 3 months, 2200 points got you into the top 500.

I hope to see you at the tables as I am playing the Open Skill League tournaments as well. Good luck!

Cheers Thank you, I'm close to the 2000 mark but not quite there yet need a better run and only won $0.05 once and keep coming really close to a min-cash, although 1st is what I want.

Yes look forward to seeing you at the tables also.

Good Luck
