Still, the $5,000 freerolls are not the only way to score big cash in the series. If you finish among the top players in at least a couple of tournaments, you will not only gain some free cash, but will also likely appear among the top 15 players on the series' leaderboard. Every freeroll will give away leaderboard points to the top 30 finishers and the ones with the most points by the end of April will receive their share of the $7,500 cash prize.

Points will be awarded in the following order, depending on where you finish in each of the weekly $5,000 freerolls:
