Even though the United Kingdom does not have a player ranked in the top ten of the World Championship of Online Poker’s Tournament Leader Board, the country does have players who are in contention to win any one of the three awards PokerStars will hand out to the individuals who accumulate the most points over the course of this year’s WCOOP. In fact, out of the thousands and thousands of people who are participating in WCOOP, the United Kingdom has five players who currently rank among the series’ top 53 players in terms of points and they are: DYBYDX (115 pts), beardo1981 (110 pts), Se7enTr3y (110 pts), NigDawG (105 pts), and danface (100 pts).
Players earn points that determine where they rank on WCOOP’s Tournament Leader Board based on the types of tournaments they participate in and where they finish in each. The higher a person finishes in a tournament, the more points he or she receives. PokerStars will give whoever is on top of the leader board at the end of WCOOP a trophy, a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package, an EPT Grand Final package, a TCOOP Main Event ticket, and a custom chip set. Whoever is in the leader board’s second position will get a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package and a TCOOP Main Event ticket. PokerStars will give a TCOOP Main Event ticket to the player who accumulates the third highest number of points during WCOOP.
