  • why should +20vpps play the premier league ?

    hi, i just read that the players with +20vpps such as myself can only win the 1/3 of the prize they would have won in the open league for the same finish, which i dont understand why, i think it would be a piece of cake making the top 10 in the OL than it would be in the PL ...

    also will the PL be invitational only or do u get thrown there automatically after making top 1500 ?

    my point is, is it possible to choose between OL and PL after finishing top 1500 with +20vpps ?

      pokerstars is a business, they want your money. you make VPPs by playing cash games or tournaments, from which they always take a rake or an entry fee.

      by saying that only 150VPPs can claim all their prizes it is supposed to make you want to deposit more cash, play more (i.e. give them more money).

      no matter how helpful they are, their main priority is taking your $$$$.

      that's your answer.

        tx for the replay,

        but it says here http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/league

        "Note: Members that have been invited to the Premier Skill League are not eligible to compete in the Open Skill League leaderboard during that month. For example, if you were awarded an 'August Premier Skill League Ticket', you will not be prevented from playing in the Open League tournaments during August, but your results in those will not be scored for the Open League leaderboard."


        u mean if i turned down the invitation i'll be able to score in the OL?

          if you turn down your invite then you can play in the OL tournaments but your points will NOT count on the leaderboard.

          better to just accept the invite, maybe play some cash games and earn some more VPPs, it's not too hard to reach 150.

            WELL STAFF DIDN'T SAY ALL THAT AND I DIDN'T READ THIS BEFORE
            SO IT SEEMS STAFF WAS A BIT MISLEADING
            SO IT LOOKS LIKE TO GET A PRIZE NEXT MO. YOU NEED TO PLAY THE PL
            GOOD LUCK

                YOU MIGHT HAVE TO LOSE MORE THEN 400 POINTS
                SOME OF THE TOP 1500 WILL NOT HAVE 20 VPP'S
                SO YOU MAY HAVE TO DROP DOWN TO 1800THPLACE OR LOWER
                IF IT WAS ME I WOULD JUST PLAY THE PL
                I THINK IT WILL BE MORE FUN

                  Amazing that you think that getting 10th in the open league next month in a field of over 110000 will be easier than getting 10th in the premier league (field of 1500).

                  Do you enjoy playing bingo in fields of 10000?

                  Playing 700 (doubt they will be bigger than that) man tourneys against people with something at stake will be so much easier.

                  If I fail to qualify this month, I will not even bother trying in August (or ever again probably). The open league is poker hell!

                    tx for the replies guys, i think i'm gonna have to drop as much points as i can and see how it goes, i'm pretty sure i will not reach 150vpps next month either with the limits i play, so this PL thing doesnt compute to me

                      I DON'T THINK THEY WILL HAVE EVEN 700

                              up to you, but 33% of a prize is better than 0%
