Pokerstars Battle of Planets - Advice/Question
I'm looking for advice from anyone who has placed or tried to place on Pokerstars
SNG Battle of the Planets Leaderboard.
I've had time to play poker lately, for the first time in months, and I've been trying to sew up the holes in my game. For some background, so far sharkscope
says I have an average ROI of about 10% from a 300 game sample, and I usually play TAG until the blinds go up to the 3rd or 4th level. As part of this little experiment I've been playing $1.20 sngs on Stars almost exclusively both for bankroll management and to build up solid strategy and discipline against a field with plenty of fish, calling stations, and all-out bad players.
I've made some great plays, horrible plays, sucked out and been sucked out on, of course. This week I've been setting my sights on the Battle of the Planets Leaderboard, and after 19 games (you need 20 games to to complete a block score) i have a score of 354, putting me in the middle of the current leaderboard. Most scores range from 400-300. Last week's leaderboard range, however, was from about 600-400 with no scores in the 300 range. It starts anew every Saturday and today is only Tuesday.
Here is part of my question: Does anyone know how many points you get for placing in the different MTT sngs? For the single table 9-hand games I'm pretty sure its 46 for first place, 27 for 2nd and around 12 for 3rd. Pokerstars says it only gives Battle of the Planets points for sngs with less than 40 people in it. So I'm wondering if it would be worth it to try and get more points by taking on an 18 or 27 man sng for my last game of the block, or if I should just stick to the 9-hand games that I've hand decent luck with so far??
I'm almost positive first and second place in the MT sngs get more than 1st and 2nd place in the single table, but obviously it's harder to win. I have searched the PokerStars promotion site as well as various forums but have found no definitive answer on points for different places in different sngs..
Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
