  • 1st Overall Winner = member with the lowest total time of all participants.
  • All Star Level = members who place 1st Overall for the second time within the next 4 matches they participate in.

Examples of how the new All Star Level works

  • Member becomes an All Star
    • Member places 1st overall in 1Q 2020 and wins 1st Overall cash pot. She participates in the 2Q & 3Q 2020 matches and places in the top five, just missing the win. She skips the next 2 matches and doesn’t participate again until 2Q 2021 where she places 1st overall again. Since 2Q 2021 is the 4th match she has participated in, she is now an All Star and wins the All Star prize and the 1st Overall cash pot will go to the next eligible participant.
      • #1 = 1Q 2020 – 1st Overall Cash Pot win
      • #2 = 2Q 2020 – 3rd place overall
      • #3 = 3Q 2020 – 2nd place overall
      • N/A = 4Q 2020 – did not participate
      • N/A = 1Q 2021 – did not participate
      • #4 = 2Q 2021– Becomes an All Star and wins the All Star prize!!

NOTE: If a member doesn’t participate in quarterly matches after winning the 1st Overall Case Pot for any reason, those matches do not count towards determining when she becomes an All Star.

  • All Star member becomes eligible to win 1st Overall Cash Pot again
    • Member became an All Star in 2Q 2021. She participates in 3 of the next 4 matches and won the All Star prize twice during her All Star period. She participates in 3Q 2022 and placed 1st Overall once again. This time she is eligible to win the 1st Overall Cash Pot!!
      • 2Q 2021 – Became an All Star
      • #1 = 3Q 2021 – 3rd place overall
      • N/A = 4Q 2021 – did not participate
      • #2 = 1Q 2022 – All Star Winner and won the All Star prize
      • #3 = 2Q 2022 – All Star Winner and won the All Star prize
      • #4 = 3Q 2022 – placed 1st Overall and won the 1st Overall Cash Pot

NOTE: If an All Star member skips a quarter for any reason, that match is not counted as part of her All Star period.
