Tourney Points. Used for what?

I’ve played in 2 multi-table tournaments. The first one, I was the winner. I got 250,000 chips and over 4000 Tourney points. The second, which I just came in at 14(No chips for this one), I also got over 4000 Tourney points. What exactly are these Tourney points used for? I haven’t seen anything on the Home page or Poker Lobby about these. Please fill me in if you would. Thanks.

When you check your stats (click on your name and you get a menu, click there on stats) you see your tournaments points. The tournaments points are for the ranking, Click on Toplist and there on Multi Table Tournaments
