The Portland chapter results for the 2018 Startup Poker 2.0 League Championship are in. Big congratulations to this year’s SD member winner, Christa King, who finished with 20.6 points. It’s worth noting that five of the top six players all played in 4 or more events and three of the top six played in 6 or more events. Remember, only your top three results count toward your league score so the more you play the more chance you’ll improve your results by bettering a previous finish. 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 Portland 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.
