Leading online poker sites UltimateBet and Absolute Poker today revealed a  revamped Tournament Leaderboard competition for 2009, raising the stakes to give online poker players at both sites a million reasons to keep on coming back.

This year's Tournament Leaderboard competitions combines both online poker sites on the CEREUS Poker Network  to create an even more lucrative yearly prizepool  of over $1 Million, and is guaranteed to give players  the benefit of more prize money on the table in the weekly, monthly and yearly leaderboard competitions at UltimateBet and Absolute Poker.

The  changes to the system incorporate real-time leaderboard status updates, and delivers a more user-friendly Tournament Leaderboard page, so that players can instantly and effortlessly see where they rank in the current pecking order  at any given time.

A highlight of the June relaunch  includes the Yearly Tournament Leaderboard with a total prize pool of $100,000 up for grabs, with $50,000 awarded to the top 10 finishers, including cash and Aruba Poker Clascis prize packages to the top 3 places. The top 100 players of the year will also be invited to participate in a $50,000 Yearly Tournament Leaderboard freeroll.

Players at UltimateBet and Absolute Poker are automatically enrolled into the site's weekly, monthly and yearly leaderboard competitions. To climb to the top of the  leaderboard ladder, the winning player must collect the most points by doing well in a lot of big tournaments. There's no fee to join in the Leaberboard competitions, and now that both online poker sites employ the same unique tournament leaderboard formula, it's arguably the best Leaderboard Competition in the business.

"I love a good contest at the poker tables," said 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth.  "With $100,000 now on the line for free, and state of the art technology to check out where you stand on the leader board, let the games begin!"

The leaderboard ranking system is designed to account for the varying levels of skill in different buy-in tournaments and the number of players in a tournament. The higher a player cashes in a tournament, and the bigger the prize pool, the more points he or she will earn.
