The PokerStake Rankings are the premier online poker tournament rankings. Established in January 2005, PokerStake has been following online tournament poker closer than any other website. The rankings have since expanded to include the Sortable Rankings (a local ranking system), Sliding PLB, Monthly PLB and more. Read more about the rankings in the FAQ .
The PokerStake Rankings are determined by a player's Sliding PLB score. The Sliding PLB is a leaderboard that uses the PokerStake Leaderboard points system to rank players based on current results. Under the sliding PLB, PokerStakers' most recent scores count for the most number of points and older scores are gradually phased out.
