To ensure a level playing field for all participating players, we have revamped the points system. Using a base points to buy-in hybrid we can easily calculate player points. The system rewards higher buy-in finishes, but also allows point finishers in lower buy-in, higher volume tournaments, a chance at the leader board. Below you will find the base point structures to buy-in ratio:
| Buy in
We use the base points to show the amount of points the lowest money finisher would receive relative to the buy-in range and it is the same base point number that you add to the next finisher ahead until you reach the first place result.
For example, in a $300 tournament, with a 100-player field with 10 spots paying, the point distribution would look like this:
The main objective is to reward consistency in cashes, and not rely so heavily on final table results with bonuses.
Points for larger sized events will be capped at 2000 CPT points and pro-rated down to the base multiplier of the event. For example, the winner of the BC Poker Championships $2700 Main Event will get 2000 points while those who finish 51-60th will receive 60 points each. This is being done to ensure that the winners of 1 large event won’t substantially outweigh those who consistently cash in the average CPT events.
