Open Poker League

The Open Poker League consists of regular micro-stakes tournaments with different buy-ins and structures, taking place every day at the times stated below. You play for points and cash prizes every time you enter the daily tournaments - the more tournaments you play and the higher you finish, the more points you’ll be rewarded, and the higher your prize at the end of the month.

How to play the Open Poker League

There are tournaments with different buy-ins running each day of the week, ranging from $0.11 up to $3.30.

There are cash guarantees in every tournament, which you can find in the PokerStars lobby by selecting ‘Tournament’, and using the search function.

Play for Free with Open Poker League Freerolls

In addition to the daily buy-in tournaments, there are also Open League Freerolls running every day, awarding free entries to Open Poker League tournaments. There are different freerolls available at different start times each day, so keep checking the PokerStars software for exact details.

Please Note: Freerolls are not part of the league, and you cannot earn Leader Board points playing them, but they are a great way to win seats to the guaranteed cash tournaments every day, without breaking the bank. 


Points are awarded in each Division tournament as follows, and you can keep track of how well you are performing on the Rankings page. PokerStars will update the table daily after each tournament is over, so make sure you keep checking back.
