How Do Leaderboard Points Work For Freerolls?

In freeroll and freebuy events only the top 200 players gain leaderboard points. 

Participation 1 point = 100-200 position

Top 50% of field = in top 100

1st-10th as normal.

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?

OPL tournaments are protected in two different ways:

  1. Affiliate Protection -­ Players who did not sign up to the poker room via OPL or a partner will not be able to register for the tournament and in some cases will not be able to view the tournaments in the lobby. An example of this type of protection is Unibet.
  2. 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.

When is the leaderboard Updated?

The leaderboard will be updated every 24 hours.

The points showing for my play on the leaderboard are incorrect. What do I do?

The leaderboard is compiled automatically based on your My Account area.

If you have not added your screename for a poker room to your My Account area, leaderboard points cannot be attributed to your OPL account.

For an OPL eligible poker room I can change my screen name - what should I do?

For some poker rooms like Betsafe and BetVictor you can change your screen name. Overall leaderbaord results will NOT be combined if a player changes their screen name. The OPL is not responsible if players to not adhere to this guidance and will not reallocate overall leaderboard points retroactively.

How do I add my screen names?

Visit the My Account area to add your poker room screenames.

"Get Deal" button not working on the OPL site?

Ad block will be stopping you being directed to the poker room to make an account. The solution is to disable ad block and click the "Get Deal" button again.

Can I resell my OPL prizes?

All leaderboard Winners of tickets and prizes can sell their prizes privately.

At the end of the season all winners will receive an email of which you will reply the accounts/names of where you want the prizes to be awarded. 

Can I trade tournament tickets for cash?

You cannot trade tournament tickets for cash directly with the OPL. You may however ask for the ticket to be credited to an account of your choosing.

All transactions regarding tickets will be at the discretion of the poker room or OPL partner who contributed these to the prize pool.

Can I trade merchandise for cash?

No. Merchandise cannot be traded for cash.

Can I just play one tournament and still get the prizes?

Yes. The OPL scoring system means that it is possible for participants to play only one tournament or at one poker room and rank on the leaderboard.

How can I find the password for a tournament?

If a tournament has a password, you need to be logged in and have a screen name added for this room to see it. Passwords will become visible if you meet those requirements, 48 hours before the tournament starts.
