  • Question that i couldnt get answered by email

    I made the Premier League for August, so i asked in an email if we can play the Open tournament also and they said yes but we wont get any points for the Open tournaments but we can get the money. I sent a 3rd email asking them if they were positive because, it wasnt worded clearly, i thought they might of meant just the $10. I didnt want to play a bunch of tournaments for nothing. The 3rd email was totally off topic. It was a total explaination from A to Z.

    Can we play both and just get the money from the Open tournament, not the points, if we are in the Premier League.


    Thank you anyone

    Well if they're not giving you points, then you won't be on the leaderboard, and thus..no money.

    This is one point that has been clear for the most part...you can compete in both, but players in the premier league will not be receiving points in the open league.

    I'm not really sure why players are allowed to compete in both, but if the open league is a freeroll open to anyone, how are they supposed to keep the premier league players out?
    I guess they're counting on the fact that only a deranged mind would waste time in the open league when they've qualified for the premier league.

    One thing I would do, if you're in the premier league, would be to play in the qualifier league too.
    1. You have twice the chance to get into the premier league the following month.
    2. You have the incentive to play for cash while also attempting to earn a ticket for the premier league.
    3. You earn vpps while qualifying.

    Just seems like a win-win.

      If you play in the open events they do mean that you can play for the $10 prize pools but of course as mentioned by Dan you will not be able to win anything in the open league leaderboard.

            I did for a giggle
            Was a complete donk

            You finished in 584th place (eliminated at hand #65470895478).

            112 hands played and saw flop:
            - 9 times out of 12 while in small blind (75%)
            - 11 times out of 12 while in big blind (92%)
            - 49 times out of 88 in other positions (56%)
            - a total of 69 times out of 112 (62%)

            Pots won at showdown - 16 out of 34 (47%)
            Pots won without showdown - 10
