So what does the HeroScore consist of?



General HeroScore


Each user has a HeroScore, a unique number which symbolizes all of his actions and achievements related to poker.
In term of numbers, the general HeroScore is the sum of 3 thematic scores, which are represented with colorful bars:



Poker Results


The first score is the Poker Results score. This is accounting for all poker-playing performance: playing live and playing online.
