A Leader Board ranks the highest scoring players in poker tournaments. The Leader Boards at PokerStars.fr display the players that have performed best in tournaments over a set period of time. In the case of the Sit & Go Leader Boards, samples of play during a particular week are ranked.
A Sit & Go is a poker tournament that begins when a fixed number of players have registered; as soon as that number of registrants is reached, the event begins. At PokerStars.fr, Sit & Go tournaments are offered in a huge range of buy-in levels and number of players.
