    New Upgrade - PokerOwned Player Rating System -

    What is this?
    PokerOwned players like to brag, just showing users how much money you have won, doesn't cut it. What if you won money against a weak field? What if you took 1st place then last, last and last? How good are you really?

    We solve that debate now

    Sweet, how do I enter?
    The player rating system is a passive promotion, meaning you do not need to opt in, only play in AT LEAST 6 tournaments a week to qualify.

    6 tournaments, explain please
    To get a true sense of your rating, if you took 1st in tournament this week, you would probably be ranked #1. You need to have played in at least 6 tournaments to qualify each week to win points.

    Ok I get it, how do you determine my rating after the tournament?
    We have consulted NASA and have come up with this formula:

    Total Average In The Money % of everyone that opted in
    ADD
    Total Number of players that are playing
    DIVIDED BY
    The position you finished in the tournament.

    Or

    ITM % (All users avg) + Entrants / Position = your rating for that tournament

    English please, give me an example
    All users combined = 36.5 ITM %, there were 35 users that are playing. Lets see what your rating is if you finished in 16th place or 20th place.

    36.5 + 35 = 71.5 / 16th place = 4.46 Player Rating for that tournament
    36.5 + 35 = 71.5 / 20th place = 3.57 Player Rating for that tournament

    *** NOTE *** We ran some tests. 1-8th place were getting a TON TON TON more points than everyone else.. Like 30x's more points. So what we came up with was:

    1st / 5
    2nd / 5.5
    3rd / 6
    4th / 6.5
    5th / 7
    6th / 7.5
    7th / 8
    8th / 8.5

    Then 9th place / 9
    10th place / 10
    and so on



    Ah ok, I get it. So the harder the field the more rating points I can earn?
    Yes. The harder the field and more players in the tournament, the higher your rating becomes as you place higher in THAT tournament.


    Sweet, how much can I win?
    This is a progressive prize pool. We currently take 4% out for promotions on each and every survey. 1% of that is dedicated to the weekly prize pool for the Player Rating system.

    Depending on where you rank each week, you can win the following % of the prize pool:

    1 10 %
    2 9 %
    3 8 %
    4 8 %
    5 8 %
    6 7 %
    7 7 %
    8 6 %
    9 6 %
    10 5 %
    11 5 %
    12 4 %
    13 4 %
    14 3 %
    15 3 %
    16 2 %
    17 2 %
    18 1 %
    19 1 %
    20 1 %


    So if the total prize pool is 5500 points, and you take 4th place, you win 10% of the prize pool or 550 points.

    *** Note *** There could be a TON of points given away each week, so I may have to add more places

    Your average for the week.

    We will show all time player ratings as well.

    This SHOULD get players to play better also. If you take last in a tournament, it will hurt your average

    Ya you need to have played in at least 7 tourneys in the week.

    Keep in mind there are AT LEAST 21.

    will it hurt your rating if you play all the PO tourneys as opposed to just 7 or will the # of tourneys you play not affect your rating in a comparative view?

    Its an average of all the tourneys you play...

    So if your rating sucks then you take first.. your rating will go up.


    Think of it like a batting average in baseball.
