In the instance above, you can see from the Match Ladder to the right that PlayerA (who has the octopus avatar and whose table we are currently watching) is currently ‘winning’. They are at the top of the Match Ladder on the right, with a score of 750. Their true opponents – who are in the same seat as them and who they are trying to beat – are CL16 and CL5.
Currently, all three of these players are playing Hand 10 (out of 18 total hands for the tournament); they are all in the Cutoff position (right of the Dealer) for this hand and all three of them have . The players at their table are also all playing against players in their seat at other tables, and have their own Match Ladders.
This Match Ladder tells us that PlayerA won 250 chips on the previous hand. The other two players on the Match Ladder did not play the previous hand as skilfully as PlayerA. CL16 won no chips (indicating they folded the hand pre-flop) – whereas CL5 lost 140 chips. This suggests that the previous hand did not deal great cards (or CL5 folded post-flop before seeing better cards), so perhaps PlayerA bluffed their opponent(s) in order to win 250 chips off them.
CL5 currently has a score of -1470. If they cannot move into second place before the next elimination round, they will be eliminated. PlayerA and CL16 will continue playing until the end of the 18th hand when the match will end.
