Why is deceided that the shooting stats and trickiness stats only apply to the open leage.. Here you can't play normal poker, just wait and push with aa or kk and wait for itm.. When you get promoted to the premier leage, where you can actually play some normal poker, the stats don't count for the leaderboard.. so you get punnished for being promoted.. would be normal (I think) that it would be the other way round, and get an extra reward for playing the premier leage..

anybody an idea why this is....??????

count your blessings
you need different strategies to score high in leagues and stats. PL players have the advantage of being able to go for a high stats score without risking their league progress.

We can't have data from two different leagues going into one leaderboard, the system simply won't allow it.

We could have two trickiness and shooter factor leaderboards, one for the premier and one for the open, but that gets even more complicated and confusing for members.

The decision was made to apply the My Stats leaderboard to Open League players only as the Premier League already has a bigger prize for the winners.

This applies to players from all PokerStars Poker Schools and will be reviewed again at the end of 2014.

Hi RoyalRaise85


I played my first OL last month and now I'm in the PL for FEB. I have played a handful of OL games too this month, vying for a BIGBANG (3 consecutive sub-400).

My question: even as a PL player, would not my play exclusively within the OL stream, be tracked and ranked the same as anybody else playing those 'O' games, provided that said persons have opted-in for STATS? I can understand that my STATS in PL couldn't be included; but for specifically 'O' games, is my SHOOTING/TRICKERY actually measured? Or does the mere fact that I exist in the PL automatically preclude me from participating in the STATS promotion?


Thanks in advance for your insight.

KicknYerAces,
for what it is worth you do show up on the shooter factor and trickyness leaderboards. #1705 and #528 respectively
