I was just checking my STATS LEADERBOARD position and looked back at the last few months to see what kind of points totals had won the prizes.

But immediately noticed that the big prizewinner and other players have been expunged from the historical data.

That is a lot of money in prizes that now look like they have gone to ghosts...

I know the player that won shooter factor a few months in a row is still around as they are in the currently running OSL tourney, can be searched and found in the main leaderboard but no longer show up on the STATS leaderboards.

And it is even funnier on the Trickiness Leaderboard for March

Any information on this?

No information Ed,

Maybe these were accounts that were banned or closed because of excessive stalling etc?

Any action taken against any individual player would be dealt with directly with that player and I doubt very much PokerStars would share information on individual cases in a public forum.

The only advice I can say is to shoot support@pokerstars.com an email and see what comes back.

Thanks Raiser

The players (I know who they are..) are definitely still playing.

This was the number one spot player the last few month for shooter factor. I watched their game and they are still playing the strategy for shooter points so I would expect them to be high up the leaderboard.

OPEN LEAGUE STANDINGS Legend

#1596 33 RO caiordache $0.50/$2.50 yes 1728.87

So they are not banned/excluded accounts.

OK racked my brains and came up with a possible reason for this.

There is a profile option to opt-in or opt-out of the promotion

QUOTE
Initiate your ongoing participation in this promotion by enabling the option on your profile page. Choose to participate by the 20th day of the month in order to be eligible for current and future monthly prize pools. You may disable participation in this promotion at any time.

I looked at the opt-in option and if I changed the answer to NO the following explanation pops-up (I then reset it to yes as I don't want to opted out)

Participate in Shooting Stats Leaderboards No

Your change to this option will be reflected in the next scoring update to the Shooting Stats Leaderboards. Note that you will not be allowed to choose 'Yes' for this month's stats leaderboard after the 20th day of the month.

I think it is likely these players have opted out - planning to opt-in again before the 20th.

THIS MEANS THE CURRENT LEADERBOARDS WOULD BE SHOWING A VERY FALSE POSITION FOR THE CRUCIAL PLACES

If the leaderboards are not showing a true position until the last third of the month that is pretty unfair.

I would suggest if you opt-out you should not be allowed to opt back in until the following month. And that any opt-in for current month should be much earlier - say by the 10th.

I don't see any reason to have this feature at all to be honest - but if this is the reason for all the blank historical data it looks pretty sneaky. We will see if the player pops up in the top spots around the 19th.

Are my suspicions correct ???? [usually if I ask stars support they just deny anything I cannot prove]

The opt-out/-in option is the one I've been suspecting. I'm almost tempted to try it and see, except maybe I don't want to risk it. I guess we'll find out on the 21st...

Yes I think so - I don't see any benefit to opting out now. Pretty sure those players will be gauging their shooter factor scores from the MyStats against the leaderboards and waiting to surprise us - but tbh all I can do is get my own score as high as possible - which hasn't gone great so far.

Good work yourself - you are executing a very good strategy well and hope you get a top prize.

I will compete better next month - I have spotted several ways to improve from this month - not even just 'don't play stupid' which I have been guilty of a few times.
