The goal of each tournament is to have the highest possible balance at its end. When you conclude successful trades, your tournament balance grows, and you get higher on the leaderboard. The results are calculated during the tournament and up to its end.
Example. You had 100₮ at the beginning of a tournament. The higher your tournament balance gets by its end, the higher you will be on the leaderboard.
You can create a nickname to make tracking your progress during the tournament easier. Refer to the “How to change my name / nickname?” article.
