That's because your ...
FROM ab_leader_board ablb, ab_members abm
calls for a cross join--it asks for every logically possible combination
of ablb and abm rows. From the rest of your query, it appears you need
something like ...
FROM ab_leader_board ablb
INNER JOIN ab_members abm USING (<name_of_joining_column>)
Also, do you really mean to sum all those ablb column values after
having already called for all ablb column values with ablb.* ?
