$10 of each buy-in goes towards The Royal Championship and Player of the Year payouts.

Accumulate points and crowns to earn Player of the year status and qualify to play in the Royal Championship.

Player of the Year is calculated by multiplying your Average with your total crowns.

Those with 9 or less crowns will be invited to play in the Gauntlet and wild card their way into the championship game.

Final Table

Some special rules apply when players want to discuss a chop. First and foremost, if even 1 player says “No” to a chop, then there will be none. ALL players must come to an agreed chop for it to happen. 
If no chop is accepted, then it can not be proposed again until a player is eliminated, and before action starts in the hand immediately following. Once action starts in the next hand, a chop can’t be proposed until another player is eliminated.

In a chop, points will be based on player’s chip amounts

1st – 40%
2nd – 30%
3rd – 20%
4th – 10%


Points per place

1st = 150 pts
2nd = 135 pts
3rd = 120 pts

7th = 75 pts
8th = 65 pts
