How Do Leaderboard Points Work For Freerolls?

Participation 1 point = 100-200 position

What if I already have an account at an OPL partner room?

That's fine! Just get in the tournaments, play, get some points and win $$$! 

How are the tournaments protected?

Password / Payment Protection - The password will be released on the tournament page 48 hours before the event starts, users must be logged into their OPL accounts to see the password. Players who do not have the password will not be able to register for the tournaments. In the event a player is not an OPL member, has obtained the password through nefarious means, is not tracked to OPL or an OPL partner - OPL reserve the right to not credit the player with leaderboard points and to not pay money added to the tournament prize pool to the player in question.
