Hi just joined the league tried searching for the answers to my questions but couldn't see them,

1: When is your league prize paid to you?
2: I seen people ask questions on sending ID, i did this years ago if it's regarding account verification with pokerstars, is there anything else i need to do in regards to sending more ID?
3: I see on the league table an "eligible" tab, i have a green check, what am i supposed to be eligible for lol?
4: How many players from the open skill league qualify for the premier league each month?
5: If you qualify for the premier league can you retain your ticket each month for the premier league? If so how many stay in or where is the relegation cut off?

Think that's it, sorry for so many lol.

Hi ScotlandKing!

Welcome to the forum. Here is a link to the league overview. It will answer the last two questions for you.

The Premier Skill League
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

The prizes are paid out at the beginning of the next month, so any prizes that you would win in August are paid at the beginning of September.

The ID info was, I'm assuming, for PokerStars security for account verification, if required by them.

The prize that you are eligible for is based on your VPP level. I pulled yours up on the leaderboard and since your 20VPP+ column is highlighted green, so you are eligible for the prize in that column for whatever place you finish in.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

The green check mark indicates that you've played the minimum 5 tourneys to be eligible for the prize at the end of the month provided you are one of the top 2000 finishers in the Open Skill League, top 200 of the Qualifiers League or the top 500 of the Premier League. Cheers and gl at the tables!
