Lets Online Poker Players Go Heads Up For Leaderboard Prizes

Heads up, mano a mano, one on one. From July 5 through August 1, is offering special leaderboard rewards to online poker players going for it against one other opponent.

Every week — for four qualifying weeks in a row — there will be $1,000 in online tournament tickets awarded to the top 10 leaderboard finishers.

The promotion begins during the waning days of the NJ Online Championships.

New opportunities to win each week

Prizes offered range from a $10 tournament ticket up to $270 in multiple tournament tickets for the player who reaches the top of the leaderboard each week.

Each week in July gives players a new opportunity to climb their way to the top and grab their share of the prizes.

One leaderboard point is awarded for every win, so the more wins you rack up, the higher you’ll rise up in the rankings.

Important details in the WSOP promotion

Leaderboard eligibility is based only on heads up sit & go tourneys. No other game types will qualify for this promotion.

Final leaderboard rankings will be given on the website within 24 hours of the end of the promo, with the top 10 places receiving the following prizes weekly:

  1. $270 (1 – $200 tournament ticket, 7 – $10 tournament tickets)
  2. $190 (1 – $100 tournament ticket, 9- $10 tournament tickets)
  3. $145 (1- $100 tournament ticket, 4 – $10 tournament tickets, 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  4. $115 (1 – $100 tournament ticket, 1 – $10 tournament ticket, 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  5. $90 (9 – $10 tournament tickets)
  6. $70 (7- $10 tournament tickets)
  7. $50 (5 – $10 tournament tickets)
  8. $35 (3 – $10 tournament tickets , 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  9. $25 (2 – $10 tournament tickets, 1- $5 tournament tickets)
  10. $10 (1 – $10 tournament tickets)

Winners will receive confirmation emails within 48 hours of the end of the promo. Players can also check their ranking by contacting support at 1-855-218-6232.

Prizes will be awarded into the player’s account at the end of each scheduled week, after leaderboard positions are posted.

Is the latest promotion worth playing?

If your preferred format of play is heads lp, then this leaderboard promo is ideal. There also doesn’t appear to be a minimum buy-in requirement, meaning players can participate and win at all stakes.

This particular leaderboard promo differs in that the positions are awarded based on number of wins rather than just Action Player Points accrued, due to the one-on-one format.

If you’re a seasoned heads-up player, there’s a lot of potential to climb high in the leaderboards and score heaps of tournament tickets.

If you’re not very familiar with heads up and want to give it a try, this is also a good incentive to try it out, as you could score a few extra tournament tickets on top of your winnings, without needing a big bankroll.
