The San Diego chapter results for the 2018 Startup Poker 2.0 League Championship are in. Big congratulations to this year’s SD member winner, Jeremy Yamaguchi, who finished with 20.425 point. As you can see below, the top three players were separated by just about one point — so remember, every win matters and landing on 8th place instead of 9th in just one event can make all the difference in the end. So play smart! The entire leader board is below.
It took us a while to get the championship medallions finished but they were worth wait. Here’s what makes this medallion special:
- 2oz of solid .999 silver.
- 14 karat gold plated
- Encrusted with 1 full caret of genuine lab-grown diamonds
- Marked with the city and the year (reverse side)
2018 San Diego League Leader Board
How League Points are Determined
League points are determined by each member’s three highest finishes, adjusted by the number of players in each event. Since the maximum players is 40, the formula for determining win value is the reverse-place finish times the number of players divided by 40. For example, a 5th place finish in a 16-person event is worth 4.8 points, e.g., (16–5+1) * (16/40). Alternatively, a 5th place finish in a 32-person event is worth 32.4 points.
In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by the total number of points earned, including all finishes… not just their top three finishes.
