The criteria is such that you can't play in a bunch of low-end tournaments to pick up cheap points. This is off of Cardplayer.com:- Tournaments that have at least a $500,000 overall prize pool, 2003 land-based Player of the Year events, or tournaments in which the average prize pool per event is at least $200,000. For example, a one-event tournament (like Bellagio's Friday night tournament) will count if it has a prize pool of at least $200,000. Note: For a tournament to be grandfathered in for 2005, it must meet these new criteria. - Open events — seniors, dealers, and ladies-only events do not count - Main events — second-chance tournaments do not count - Events with at least a $300 buy-in — freeroll events do not count - Events in the United States , with a few exceptions. The World Poker Tour events at the Aviation Club in France , the UltimateBet tournament in Aruba , and the PartyPoker Million will be included.
