      Can anyone explain to me how this works? Yes, I read the promo details but a few things puzzle me.

      Yesterday I saw players in the top 3 on the leaderboard completely missing from the leaderboard today (even though they have enough points to still be in top 5). My understanding is that the best block of 15 games will be counted towards the final leaderboard. So initially I thought that if your results were really good the first time around, 15 games would be all you needed to play. Doesn't seem to be the case.

      If you go to this link - http://www.ipoker.com/html/snghighgear/main/player, there are two columns that I thought had no significance on this promo #of daily SNGs and # of daily points. It seems that you have to maintain x amount of SNGs/points a day throughout the week in order to maintain your leaderboard standing.

      Hi ZODECI,

      You are right when you say about the best 15. So lets say you just won all 15 your first time round, you would not need to play any more as you will obviously win :) You don't have to play every day etc.

      The only thing that would explain why the players went missing is that the 'week' ended on the 25th so may have only been updated today.

      Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck winning your first 15 SNG's :P

      Are you sure?.....I registered for SNG High Gear 2 days ago and one of my accounts was on the leaderboard yesterday. It's completely missing today and we're only in the middle of Week 1 of Cycle 2 which would be for the period 25june to 1st july. The #1 player from yesterday in the micros with 229 points and also the #2 player with 221 points is also missing. Because of this, the #3 player from yesterday (216 points) is now #2.

      Which skin are you playing on at the moment?

      Have you asked their support about this?

      I will see if anybody is aware of this on our side, just let me know the room you are playing on

      Thanks

      mybet -- it's not PS-affiliated but I'm planning on participating in SNG high gear with a PS account later. Yes, I've emailed support but I thought I would get a quicker response if I asked here.

      iPoker are terrible at getting their leaderboard right. There were innumerable problems with it during the first cycle a month ago. Just keep tabs on how many pts u think u have got and chk to see if u get moeny.

      iPoker are 1 step away from UB/AP and FTP imo, and the last round of this promo resulted in chaos as they disclosed a leaderboard and players didnt get the money the leaderboard said as apparently iPoker had "not counted 2 skin", the 2 skins just happened to be Titan (owned by Tage Saipa the owner of Playtech the iPoker software provide) and Willliam Hill (William Hill Online is owned 30% by PLaytech)

      You starting to get the picture?

      Hi ZODECI,

      It does look strange and I am not sure why the names would go missing.

      This would be something best to contact the support about. Its a shame your not on a PS tracked account as we would be able to find out for you :s_cool:

      I think I figured it out. The actual leaderboard chart is inaccurate. If you go here http://www.ipoker.com/html/snghighgear/main/player and actually search the names, the correct ranking/position and expected prize should be there. Sometimes the expected prize doesn't show up though (it didnt this morning but does now)

      Hi Callum, do you know if we're allowed more than one account on the leaderboard in any given week? Say one account on William Hill with 200 points and another on 770 with 199 points?

      This is true. I think poker 770 dont update leaderboard list corectly. So you need to go on "see you progres" and see how much point you have

      Hi Zodeci,

      I would imagine you would not be allowed more than one account. As it would be pretty unprofitable for Ipoker.

      You can always double check with support but I think they will say no.

      Not just 770, it's all the rooms. The leaderboard is just stupid. It's never correct. One day you can be #1 and the next day you can be #20. Unless you have 300 points (which pretty much guarantees you 1st) you'll never know where you're at. I just checked the LB and now there's a guy on micros with 283 points. First time I've seen the name.

      Interesting here. Yesterday when I checked my progress it said 200+ points and somewhere around 40th place. Today it shows me 98 points, and 200+ position.

      Hi guys,

      If there is any help you need with having a better understanding on how the leaderboard works, I'd recommend that you contact our Customer Support, at support@poker770.co.uk.

      Once you do so, we'll be able to analyze your progress and to establish exactly how come you have a given number of points and not more nor less :)

      ZODECI here was totally right: once a new promotional week begins, the leaderboard only indicates the points corresponding to that week. Your best 15 SNG block will count towards the leaderboard until July 08, when this series ends.

      The second cycle of this challenge end with week number 3, which takes place between July 09-15.

      If there is more information I can help you with, feel free to mention it.

      Regards,

      Yoanna

      Hi Yoanna
      Is it something wrong with updating Sng high gear leaderboard. When i click to see my progress (here http://www.ipoker.com/html/snghighgear/) it's says that im have 242 points. But two days ago (5/7/2012) i made a beter score. Since last update is on 7/7/2012 i am worried that my score is not updated.

      Score made by http://www.ipoker.com/html/snghighgear/main/player is not right and when they give time for when the status was calculated, some tables are not in or program make mistakes. I have 15tournaments block made 12-13.07. The last tournament began at 20:33. It was finished at midnight when they made calculation.
      I was in 5 tournaments 1. =>100 points

      4 tournaments 3. => 56 points
      1 tournaments 4. => 12 points
      2 tournaments 5. => 20 points
      1 tournaments 6. => 8 points
      1 tournaments 7. => 6 points
      =============
      218
      Program of ipokr calculated 18 it give inaccurate state or make mistake during calculation
      Best regards
