Players can earn points toward their weekly leaderboard totals simply by playing in any Sit & Go tournament*, JackpotPoker Games or On Demand tourneys. The more you play, the more points you earn, and the higher you’ll rank on the Sit & Crush leaderboard. See our Earning Points tab.
The players who rank highest at the end of each week race will win thousands of dollars PLUS tournament entries and will be paid according to their overall finish.
As you play poker, you’ll rank on a leaderboard for both cash and tournament seats. Each weekly competition runs from Saturday at 00:00 to the following Friday at 23:59 EST.
Here’s the best part: the cash leaderboard gets fuelled at absolutely no extra cost to the player. Each time a player sits down at a Sit & Go, he pays his normal fee — that’s all.
For example, a 9 handed $10+1 Sit & Go (the $1 would be the fee), we will take $0.25 out of the normal tournament fee and put it into the Sit & Crush jackpot. In this case of a 9 handed Sit & Go, $2.25 will go towards the race ($0.25 x 9 = $2.25), 70% is then contributed towards the Cash Race and 30% is contributed to the Tournament Race. In the previous example $1.575 would go to the Cash Race and $0.675 to the tournament race, on JackpotPoker Games, if player participates in a $40 Jackpot Poker game, the fee is $2.40 and then $0.60 will be contributed to Sit & Crush to the Sit & Crush rake race. Each player gets 3 points towards the Sit & Crush leaderboard.
The chart below explains how much of each tournament fee is used to feed the Sit & Crush Jackpot and how many points you will receive for each individual tournament towards the leaderboard
Everybody loves a great deal so why not get twice the value for your Sit & Go, JackpotPoker Game and On Demand tourneys play during the Sit & Crush Happy Hours! During Happy Hours you can earn double the points by playing the same amount as you usually do during these scheduled hours.
Here’s something to say cheers to. With Happy Hours, you’ll earn double points towards our Sit & Crush leaderboard. So grind the tables and climb to the top faster than ever.
Happy Hours Schedule:
- Monday to Friday From 11:00am EST to 12:00pm EST
- From 3:00pm EST to 4:00pm EST

Be sure to play as many Sit & Go’s, JackpotPoker Games and On Demand tourneys as possible during the Happy Hours, to ensure you’re primed to maximize your full Sit & Crush points earning potential.
You can track your progress to see just how beneficial playing during Happy Hours really is by tracking your progress on the leader board before and after you play. You can view your ongoing points tally by clicking on the ‘Sit & Crush’ tab in the top right hand corner of the lobby.

THE CASH & TOURNAMENT ENTRIES RACE:
By participating in these Sit & Go, On Demand events and JackpotPoker Games, you’ll compete on the leaderboard for both cash and tournament seats prizes.
Remember, this comes at zero additional cost to you. Ya Poker is feeding the jackpot directly from house tournament fees.
Each week includes two separate races; one for cash and one for tournament seats. Through this race, you can win thousands of dollars, as well as seats at satellite tournaments for events like the Punta Cana Poker Classic and the LPS. As the prize pool grows, Ya Poker is able to hand out an increased number of seats to more and more players at the end of each week. Each points race runs from Saturday at 00:00 to Friday at 23:59 EST. On Monday of each week, we reward hundreds of poker players just like you with huge cash and tournament prizes.
The payout structure for the cash race is calculated based on the size of the prize pool. As the prize pool grows, the number of paid places increases.
There are four payout tiers in Sit & Crush.
- Tier 1: $1,250
- Tier 2: $500
- Tier 3: $125
- Tier 4: $50
Every $5,167 in the Sit & Crush cash prize pool, the prize pool adds:
- One Tier 1
- Two of Tier 2
- Five of Tier 3
- Twenty of Tier 4
- Reseed next race with $1,292
Residual funds (between multiples of $5,167) as Sit & Crush grows are applied to the top places in Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 - maintaining each respective cap amounts.
In addition to winning cash, you’ll earn one entry in a tournament based on the amount in the prize pool and how you rank on the leaderboard during the qualifying period. If you win a tournament seat, you’ll be registered into it automatically. More info can be found under the Rewards tab.
