We get a lot of questions about the Leaderboards. Many questions about the actual computations are answered in this thread. Another common question is:
Why don't I show up on the Leaderboard?
If you aren't showing up on a leaderboard, and you think you should, it's probably because of one of the following reasons:
Game type -- each game type has its own leaderboard. Maybe you're looking at the 9-max leaderboard, but actually you've been playing 6-max.
Non-Random Hands -- If you used the game options to always deal a specific hand (such as "Deal me only pocket pairs"), OR froze the button (such as "Deal me only in the Small Blind") this session will NOT count towards your leaderboard ranking, or the minimum play requirement (see reason 3 below). If you played a tournament where you used these game options (deal specific hand, freeze the button), the tournament will not count towards the minimum 10 required tournaments.
Minimum play requirement -- Each leaderboard has a minimum play requirement before you can be ranked. For cash games, it is 1000 hands played. For tournaments, it is 10 tournaments played. Etc.
Wrong skill level -- for most leaderboards, the default "view" only includes hands played at the hardest level. For example, if you aren't showing up on the MTT leaderboard "Best ROI at Hardest Level", try switching to the view "Best ROI (All Levels)" leaderboard.
Leaderboard hasn't updated -- The leaderboards only update once a day, at midnight Eastern (New York) time.
