The Leaderboards section of the Match Poker Online™ app is where we show players how they stack up against each other.

The Global Leaderboard

Very simply, there is a Global Leaderboard, which shows every Match Poker Online player, organised by Rating Points (RP).

[If you’re unsure how Rating Points work in Match Poker, we have resources here that will help you understand]

Other Leaderboards

We understand that while it’s fun to see where you rank in the world, it’s not very useful for the majority of players who aren’t aiming to become Grand Masters.

This is why we have Leaderboards other than the Global Leaderboard. These additional tabs function like filters of the Global Leaderboard, allowing players to compare themselves with like-minded, similar, or relevant adversaries.

By default, we seek to obtain every player’s home country on sign-up. You will find that, in these other tabs, you can compare yourself to just the other players in your continent or country.

Maybe you’re not “World Number 1” material, but that doesn’t stop you from being number 1 in your country…? But we want to expand your competitive universe.

More Leaderboards

When you first login to the app and register, you will be asked if you would like to give us information about yourself. This is entirely voluntary[1].

This extra information allows us to provide many more leaderboards for you to be a part of. At this stage, we are only providing specific leaderboards based on age[2], gender and location (being your region/state and postcode). But we’re keen to give you many more (see below).

The dropdown box under ‘Other Leaderboards’ will allow you to change between the different leaderboards, if you have given information that allows you to be categorised into those leaderboards.

As an example, if your age is 31, you could choose to view a leaderboard comprised of only players aged 30-35. If you gave your State/Region as California, you could view a leaderboard of only Californians.

This allows us to provide players with an exciting comparison, and a chance to be the best. Perhaps you’re not the best in the world – but maybe you’re the best in your age bracket? Maybe you’re rank 72,971 in the world, but in your postcode (or maybe just in your place of business or among your friends) you’re only 31 Rating Points away from being the top dog!

[2] Note: We ask for players’ birthdays instead of ages; this allows us to automatically calculate and update players’ age.

Give us your ideas!

What other leaderboards would you like to see yourself on? Do you maybe want to rank yourself against others of your profession? What about your religion? Do you have an interest, perhaps, in seeing how you fare amongst players who support the same sporting clubs as you?

Tell us what communities you belong to and we can create leaderboards for those communities!

If you want it, we can make it happen! Just email community@matchpoker.com
