The League – Classification Tournaments

The League offers fantastic opportunities for every player to improve their game and earn prizes along the way that will really boost their bankroll. If you haven't been able to qualify for your chosen league level then don't worry. You still can prove yourself at the tables and earn your place in your preferred level with our Classification Tournaments.

Please note: To play in any of the Classification tournaments you will need a ticket. You can get your ticket at the bottom of this page.

As you may already know, each of The League levels has a maximum number of players that can possibly qualify via satellites as shown in the following chart.

Level Tournament Name Maximum Quota Satellite Buy-in Date Time (ET)*
Elementary Not applicable No maximum Not applicable Not applicable Not applicable
High School Satellite to "The League - High School" 1,000 players $1.10 + Ticket From the 21st to the 30th of each month. 01:25 / 05:25 / 13:25 / 17:25 / 21:25
University Satellite to "The League - University" 1,000 players $3.30 + Ticket From the 21st to the 30th of each month. 01:30 / 05:30 / 13:30 / 17:30 / 21:30
Masters Satellite to "The League - Masters" 700 players $5.50 + Ticket From the 21st to the 30th of each month. 01:35 / 05:35 / 13:35 / 17:35 / 21:35

(*) Check your local time zone.

The Top 20 players in any of the High School or University Classification Tournament satellites will qualify for their respective level for the following month. Classification Tournaments for the Master level will provide 14 places. The money from the buy-ins will be distributed among the winning players.

As players can try to get their place for more than one level during the classification period, no tickets will be awarded after each tournament ends. Instead, they will be awarded on 4th of each month to the highest level that a player is qualified for via the satellites.

Keep in mind that although you can play multiple qualifying tournaments and win more than one ticket for next month The League levels, you will be awarded only with one ticket - for the highest level you qualified and no additional tickets will be credited.

First Deposit Classification Tournaments

On the first day of every month two freeroll tournaments will take place called: "The League - Masters - Depositors Qualifier Freeroll". These tournaments are available to players that make their 1st-time deposit and claim their prizes associated with that particular first deposit promotion. As an added bonus Poker School will award all players that make a 1st-time deposit in any of these promotions with a ticket for one of the next available "The League - Masters - Depositions Qualifier Freerolls."

Every month Poker School will award 100 places (50 per tournament) for The League – Masters level via the "Depositors Qualifier Freeroll" with a guarantee of playing the next three months at the Masters level regardless of your finishing position in that leaderboard. This means that for three months you will have the chance of winning a share of the monthly $15,000 in prizes that this level offers.
