- Highest score: 4 pts
- 2nd highest score: 2 pts
- 3rd highest score: 1 pts
- Lowest score: 0 pt
If two (or more) players tie for a position, they share equally the added points. For example: 0.5 points each (half of 1 + 0) for two players sharing the last position.
Tournament rankings are determined through table points. Players with more table points in a game earn higher placement in the tournament. If a tie in table points occurs between players, the
player with the highest overall score will be ranked higher. In the unlikely event that two players are tied in both table points AND overall score, the player that won more hands in the game will
be ranked higher.
