When you play a hand in match poker online, you play in the same way that you play any hand of No-Limit Texas Hold’em poker. It’s when the hand is over that the unique features of Match Poker appear, including our unique offering – Rating Points (RP).
We then compare your result with the results of everyone else who played the identical cards in the identical position – and we rank your performance. If your result was better than 97.5% of the players of your rank (known as ‘peers’) who played the hand, you will be awarded 10 Rating Points. If your result was the same as 50% of your peers, you receive zero Rating Points. If your result was worse than 97.5% of your peers (i.e. your result was better than less than 2.5% of your peers), you would lose 10 Rating Points.
All other results are scaled between these parameters as follows:
