As the recent WSOP Player of the Year race showed, even without prizes a leaderboard can produce incredible tension and situations, and season 12 of the OPL looks set to create its own drama.

The league set-up is pretty simple, a series of tournaments ranging from freerolls up to €50 buy-ins, with ACR, Global Poker, HighStakes, GreySnow and GUTS all taking part.

The leaderboard itself is straightforward – collect points for your deep runs in individual tournaments and try to outpace your challengers – with cash prizes from each cardroom thrown into the winners’ swag-bags.

The winner at the end of the 17-day league series will walk off with an extra €1250, with €750 and €500 for second and third, the prizes running all the way to 20th spot.

Of course, if you’re racking up the leaderboard points, you’ve probably already snared a chunk of the €25k added value, each tournament in the OPL having its own prizefund.

It all starts on the 28th November when GUTS and ACR host the opening freerolls, €200 GTD in each event – the US facing site with $ equivalents of course.

Once each room has run their freebies, they move on to the €5 versions, and so on up the buy-ins until the season finale €50 events appear – and by that time the leaderboard will be a mad race to the finish.

The prizepools will vary according to numbers, of course, but the GTD money means there will always be plenty on the line – for example, Global Poker’s $20 buy-in boasting $1500 guaranteed to get things started.

There’s heaps of cash, tournament tickets and merchandise to be won along the way, and there’s no limit to how many rooms or tournaments you can play in.
