Each League has a Season Finale at the end of each Season where the Players can win prizes. Players must qualify or be invited to play in the Season Finale.
The Qualification Criteria for the Season Finale events has been devised to be fair and equitable to all Players and Venues. The formula has also been adjusted to ensure the Season Finale events are a reasonable size - with a reasonable expectation that a player can get through the field and win. These events are structured well but the field size needs to be such that the events are completed within a reasonable time frame.
As new Venues join the League and Season to Season, the Qualification Criteria may be adjusted to maintain a fair and equitable situation while maintaining a reasonable field size for the Season Finales.
Generally speaking, a percentage of Players from each Venue will qualify - up to a maximum number. The Players who qualify are shown on the Venue Leaderboard for each Venue. Each League also has a League Leaderboard where a percentage of Players from the League will also qualify - up to a maximum number. League points are accumulated from all Venues in the League - so if you play at multiple Venues, your League Points will be a combination from all the Venues you play at.
In summary, there are 3 ways to qualify to play in the Season Finale:
1. Via a Venue - if you are "above the cut off line" on the Venue Leaderboard at the end of the season.
2. Via the League - if you are "above the cut off line" on the League Leaderboard at the end of the season.
3. By invitation - Cool Mule Poker reserves the right to invite players who have helped and contributed to a successful Season.
