    I could not see much info in the link provided but that may just be my age.

    In 2018 it was max 32 games a month and 15 count towards final score.

    With 4 games a week how are these figures changing?

        I like that only the top 15% earn points and our best 15 scores count remains the same (although there are only 16 games we can now play in Masters). The blind levels being reduced in Masters from 10 minutes down to 8 minutes I also like. The late registration time being increased from 25 minutes to 48 minutes will be interesting to see in games with small fields.

        I see a minor error. Pokerstars put T$5 instead of just $5 on the Masters games prize pool. $5 Guaranteed should be added to the game title also,

        I'm looking forward to January's Master League! 2019, the year of no more playing garbage hands, lol.

            Hi atmotsi,

            For everyone else they would need to play in the European tournament. It's not possible to create a league for every timezone. At the English School the best we could do was to create two league for our two biggest markets.

                  Hi BUZZLIYEAR,

                  Yes, those schools have their own League separate to this school now. I can't help you with the IPad question, I don't use one. Maybe another member here that does can assist?

                      Some of them will be restricted by region client, so if your on another client or in another region you might not possibly see them.

                      EN Euro
                      EN Canada
                      German
                      Italian
                      Chinese
                      Russian
                      Brazil
                      LATAM
                      French

                      For example, I'm on the .EU client, so the Canadian tournaments won't show up for me when i search for them. I would need to have .com and be living in Canada to see them.

                            Not for the Masters tournaments unfortunately BUZZLIYEAR, we have to allow all PokerStars players to play these, however, a player can only appear on one Community leaderboard. EN members will only appear on the EN leaderboard, Russians on the Russia leaderboard, and so on...

                            I don't think too many EN players will play in the RU tournaments though, there's not much point of they cant show up on the leaderboard, and vice-versa.

                              Hi madalina fcsb,

                              I just checked the info on the Scoring & Prizes page HERE.

                              'All prizes from The League are credited to winning players on, or before, the 5th day of each month.'
