Whether you like Multi-Table or Sit n Go Tournaments, we have you covered. Compete in weekly, monthly, and yearly TLBs at stakes for every budget. All you have to do is play!

A tournament leaderboard (TLB) is a tournament performance tracking system used to reward the best players at Absolute Poker room over a specific period of time. Every player who participates in a qualifying tournament is automatically ranked on the tournament leaderboards. Absolute Poker employs a specific formula that takes into account rank and the total money in the prize pool to award points to the online players who cash in the tournaments.

TLB Types
Absolute Poker features 2 main divisions of leaderboard competitions - Multi-table Leaderboards (MTT) and Sit 'n Go Leaderboards (SnG). The MTT leaderboard division features a weekly, monthly and yearly leaderboard competition. The SnG leaderboard division is divided into 3 subdivisions - Diamond, Heart and Spade. Each of these subdivisions represents specific buy-in levels. The SnG leaderboard competitions run both weekly and monthly.

Play your way to the top - It's all about position. New Leaderboards are live, get ready to take it to the top and win cash prizes, big money freerolls, and more.
