Live Poker Tournaments - Terms & Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions are relevant to any live tournament (the "Event") to which PokerStars is offering satellite entry, unless there is a terms and conditions document specifically for that event (e.g. PCA or EPT).

  2. You may represent PokerStars at certain live tournaments (chosen by PokerStars) by:

    • Winning a cash satellite tournament on the Site
    • Winning a Frequent Player Point (FPP) satellite tournament on the Site (each of the above satellite tournaments being referred to as "Satellites")
    • Winning the Tournament Leader Board playoff on the Site
    • Buying a seat in the main event of the Event
    • Buying a seat with Frequent Player Points, provided you are a PlatinumStar VIP or higher
    • Buying a seat with T-Money, provided you are a PlatinumStar VIP or higher
    • Receiving a seat as a VIP guest or qualifier
    • Winning a promotional tournament or freeroll
    • Buying a package for the Main Event (seat only or seat+hotel) or a seat for any of the Event’s side tournaments
  3. Unless otherwise stated, all satellites to the Event will be No Limit Hold'em.

  4. Unless otherwise stated, entrants must be 18 years of age to participate in the satellites. Some events may require players to be 21 or older. If you are not old enough to play in the target event, you should not play a satellite into that event.

  5. By participating in a satellite on PokerStars or by buying a seat, you grant PokerStars the right to use your name and likeness for promotional purposes without further compensation.

  6. Whether you win a non-cash satellite on PokerStars, use the Direct Buy-In cash option, or purchase a seat with T-Money or FPPs, you agree to wear PokerStars logo clothing (provided by PokerStars) throughout the Event.

  7. You may be required to sign a waiver for the hosting venue (such as a casino or card room) and may be required to sign a waiver for a media sponsor or broadcaster. If you choose not to sign those waivers, you will not be permitted to play in the Event, but will receive no compensation or refund from PokerStars.

  8. During live tournaments, strict rules regarding player behavior will be enforced. These may include penalties, up to and including disqualification, for foul language, abuse of dealers, players or any other person during the Event, or any other behavior that the organizers, in their sole judgment, believe to be detrimental to its conduct of the Event. PokerStars will not provide any refunds if you are penalized or disqualified.

  9. The seat to the Event you win is non-transferable and non-exchangeable. If you win, you must play or forfeit the seat. If you win additional seats they may not be sold or transferred. In this case, your PokerStars account will be credited with T-Money equivalent to the buy-in and entry fee of the Event.

  10. The person whose name appears on any PokerStars account which wins a seat into the Event will be deemed to be the person who played and won the satellite, and that person must attend and play in the Event.

In case of any disputes regarding any terms or conditions of this promotion, the decision of PokerStars management is final. If you have any comments or queries, feel free to contact us live@pokerstars.eu. View our Frequently Asked Questions.
