PokerStars School would like to invite you to our next Home Game promotion, The 2017 PokerStars School Knockout Festival. This special tournament series will run in the PokerStars School Community Club Homegame from November 10th to 19th and will include games for both real and play money players.
When and Where
All tournaments will be played in the PokerStars School Community Home Game Club. The cash games will be held at 13:00, 16:00, 20:00 ET. The play money games will be held at 15:00, 18:00, 21:00 ET.
Points and Leaderboards
This series will have a special scoring system that is only for the monthly prizes. The winners will be the members that have the most knockouts, which is shown on the monthly leaderboard in the PokerStars School Community Club lobby. If multiple members have the same number of knockouts, then the tiebreakers will be the points earned, then most wins.
All of the games will use the homegame scoring system in the client and the points earned will count for the yearly leaderboards. These can be found by opening the PokerStars School Community Club lobby, then clicking on standings.
