Points will be scored by each team members' finishing position in each game, with all scores in each round contributing to the overall WCOAP Team Leaderboard, which will conclude with the Day 2 MTT.

STT Points:
            
   1st      15 pts   
   2nd      12 pts   
   3rd      10 pts   
   4th      8 pts   
   5th      6 pts   
   6th      4 pts   
   7th      3 pts   
   8th      2 pts   
   9th      1 pt   
      

MTT Points will be scored based on individual player finishing positions, and will start to be earned when 50% of the field remains on a 'reverse position' scoring - eg; total players = 80, therefore top 40 are 'in the points' as such:  40th = 1 pt, 1st = 40 pts.

Each team on the Final Table will have 2 'time out' cards which the player sitting (and ONLY the player sitting) may exercise at any time whilst in a hand AND THE ACTION IS ON THEM - they will each be for 1 minute during which the player may consult with any of his other team members who are not playing on the Final Table.

*   All events / timings / points structures are subject to confirmation on the day depending on the final number of teams taking part.

**   NLHE Survivor Shootout - each STT will automatically eliminate the shortest stack player at the table from the end of Level 2 onwards IF the STT has not already lost its 'quota' of players - eg, if at least 1 player busts from an STT during Level 1 or level 2 then at the end of Level 2 THAT STT would not 'automatically eliminate' a player.  If 2 or more players have been eliminated before the end of Level 3, then again nobody would 'automatically be removed' at the end of Level 3, and so on throughout the levels... so for example, playing 10-handed then at the end of Level 8 the STT will have lost 7 players and become 3-handed.  The game will finish when it reaches Heads Up and the 1st and 2nd finishing positions in each STT will be determined by a chip count. 

So, at the latest, each STT will become HU at the end of Level 9 (when it would lose its 8th player automatically) and finish on a chip count at this time. 

A Button Ante will be in play for all NLHE STTs (and the MTT) (equivalent to BB when 7 or more handed or the SB when 6-handed or less).

A 15-second shot clock will be used. 

Players CANNOT ask for a 'count' of another player's stack - 'dirty stacks' are not allowed and chips are to be stacked in same colours/values (to aid players to count stacks themselves) - vigilance throughout the STT is key!  These measures are put in place to ensure nobody 'time wastes' with the aim to slow play to get another player eliminated.  With 'automatic eliminations' at the end of levels, each Survivor Shootout STT will complete at 20:40 hours at the latest (or before if players 'naturally bust').
