The points a player earns in a tournament are calculated:
(1000 × ( √Runners)/√(Finishing Position))×(1+log10(buyin))
For example, if a player enters a tournament with a buy-in of 5,000 chips and 200 runners and the player finishes in 6th place the player will receive 27,193 points towards their leaderboard position:
(1000 × ( √200)/√6)×(1+log10(5000)) = 5773.50 ×4.71 = 27,193 Points
Tournament points are only awarded to players who were present (not away) for at least 50% of the hands in their tournament.
