Hi PINOY_HITMAN,



'Premier Skill League Ticket' will be awarded to the following league participants:

Top 800 finishers* in the Premier Skill League
Top 500 finishers* in the Open Skill League
Top 200 finishers** in the Premier Skill League Qualifier


As long as you can maintain a rank of 500th or below in the Open League, you'll have a green light in to the Premier League!


Also be sure to have a minimum of 20 VPPS to qualify for the Premier League 20VPP monthly prizes or for an even bigger prize 150VPPS for the 150VPP monthly prize pool!

GL at the tables,
CannonLee

Sounds like you want 50 people to tell you to go for it!


Just watch the standings to guage after a day of no play.

Im not sure if they have implemented the "turning down permier ticket" option yet,but people lately seem to be suprised that they get a ticket. So personally I think your safe but that dont mean much.

Not really, i give it a shot few months back just to fell out of top 500 in the last few days with 150VPP and worse i thought i really got it because i received the ticket by mistakes and they took it back. with my current ranking it's too risky trying to improve on standing to get few more bucks and i'm afraid to repeat the same mistake i made before.

it's true in early stage but see the results below

PokerSchool Open Skill League No Limit 10000 2185 -2.17 1878.35 1876.18

May once you reached 1800 points you need to be on top 20% to earn points and also it depends how strong the field.

Just keep an eye on the leaderboard Hitman,Check it on the second last day and see how far you have dropped in the standings, and decide whether you need a few more points to get in the Premier League next month.

MY GUESS is that you only need to place in about the top 550-575 to move up due to the fact that some players will not have 20vpp's.

In actual fact it may well be nearer 650-700 as a considerable number of people either can't afford (or choose not) to get the required vpps. I went up in September finishing 753rd.

HITMAN just to clear out, if you register and time out every turn you get into the top1400 easily. Always netting you some points, its just the temptation to play good cards that doesnt get you that far.

Your right but you need to run the PSO with other tables to resist the temptation but if i'm around 25% or 2500 players left or single digit -ve points sure i'll play any monster pocket because +ve out weight the -ve once you double or triple your chips a sure 30+ points just playing your BB.

Update: Current Rank is 355. I noticed that i'm going down at the average of 5 position per session with 6 session per day it's 30 position per day. At the current rate i don't need to play a single session to made to the Top 500. But need to check it on last day to make sure.

Good Luck all and hope to see you in Premiere League next month.

Good luck Hitman, glad to see ya' here again.

We have no way of knowing what the cut-off may be for Open League participants to be qualified for the Premier League. But if the last months are any indication, I believe we had a member make it to the Premier with a finish in the 700's just last month. If someone searched, I'm sure the number was quite higher for qualifying finishes.
Like I said, this is past months. It should get harder and harder to qualify each month, but we'll have to see.
Best o' luck in your decision.
