VPP League

Turn your VPP’s into cash!

Poker is all about the thrill of the battle and winning big. That’s why this month PokerStars is giving you the chance to compete for tons of added cash prizes with the VPP League. Simply keep playing the same ring games, Sit & Go’s and MTT’s (multi-table tournaments) you always have, but now you’ll be in with a shot at turning every VIP Player Point (VPP) you earn into your share of $45,000 in cold hard cash. The more you play, the more you’ll win. It’s as simple as that.

Here’s how it works. Every time you play a real money game at PokerStars you earn VPPs, which you can then put to good use as a member of the VIP Club. From August 9-September 8, all players that register for the VPP League (see below) will have their VPP total listed on a league table. All players that finish in the top 500 at the end of the qualifying period will win a share of a $40,000 prize pool, with an extra $5,000 split between those that finish in the top 50. This makes for great added value to all the games you already play!

If you aren’t yet registered at the world’s largest poker site, download the free PokerStars software to get started. Follow the easy instructions onscreen and you’ll be up and running in a matter of minutes.

How to Play the VPP League

The VPP League is open to all players in these countries: Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Balkans. All VPPs earned across ring games (cash games), Sit & Go’s and MTT’s in all poker variants will be included, from 00:00 ET, August 9-23:59 ET, September 8.

You can keep track of where you stand on the league table on the Rankings page. It will be updated regularly, so make sure you keep checking back.


The top 500 players at the end of the league period will win a share of $40,000. This is paid out in proportion to your share of VPP earnings across the top 500. For example, if you earn 1,000 VPPs and the top 500 earns a total of 100,000 VPPs, you would earn 1%, which equals $400.


In addition to their share of the main prize pool, players finishing in the top 50 will also win extra cash as follows.

Please Note: The VPP League is open to all players in the regions listed above. However you must register for a ‘dummy’ tournament in the client to be eligible. You can find this tournament listed in the PokerStars lobby as ‘VPP League’ under the ‘Tourney’ & ‘Private’ tab. Simply register between August 2-23 (23:59 ET) to be included. After that all VPPs earned will count towards the league. All prize money will be credited within seven days after the end of the promotion.
