LPPL Regional League changes and National Championship qualification Feb 28th 2021

Looking ahead, and refreshing things to ensure we keep the league as competitive and enjoyable as possible, whilst hopefully at some point not too far away working to incorporate both live and online league aspects, to ensure it is long lasting, from March onwards we will be running qualification from new regional leagues as follows:

Angies Room (Rest of World)
Scotland
Northern (North West and North East combined)
Midlands (Midlands and Eastern combined)
Southern (South West and Southern combined)

With the cancellation of the lie National Championship, all historical finals which have contributed points to the old National Leaderboards will be moved over to the new regional qualification leaderboards as above to allow us to combine both old and future finals that will now add to qualification for the next live National Championship on the same 'combined' leaderboard.

Beyond this, as previously stated, we then start a new MARCH LEAGUE on Mon 1st Mar which will revert to run like the previous regions system, and end on 31st March.

Angies Room (Rest of World)

NOTES:

The Monthly league leaderboards are here https://bit.ly/LPPLleaderboards

The points scoring system is here https://bit.ly/LPPLleaguepoints

The daily games will continue to run with 50% of buyins paid as cash prizes manually by Party Poker to your player account within 2 days (which is why game payout tabs in the lobby for each game don’t show any prizes) to the top finishing players (it’s usually the next day - but for example, Mon games payout could be Wed, etc) / 50% retained by LPPL, from which of course prizes etc are paid.

Each players’ total leaderboard points score will be their top 12 games throughout the monthly league.

Points on each leaderboard qualify you to play in either the Gold, Silver, Bronze Finals, or the Finals Playoff* and the 'cut off' qualifying lines for each will be decided around mid-league, along with final confirmation of prizes, and if needed, qualifying lines will be adjusted throughout the league to keep in line with each individual leaderboard as the league progresses – qualifying lines will never 'decrease', but may 'increase' if adjustments are deemed desirable to ensure the league remains competitive, fair and rewarding. Once each league's 'bottom qualifying line' (ie bottom of the Bronze Final) has been set, the Gold, Silver and Bronze qualifying numbers will be circa Gold 20-30% / Silver 30-50% / Bronze 30-50%, with number of games played, number of players with min games played etc taken into account to decide the final qualifying line for each final within each league - qualifying lines / numbers between leagues will invariable differ. *In order to qualify to play in the ‘Finals Playoff’ a minimum of 12 games must be played during the league period.

All LPPL packages are non-transferable and are valid for winners' to use for 3 years, after which they will expire. A player may use any 'subsequent' package for a partner / friend to travel with them and share accommodation on the same trip, or of course, use it themselves for a different trip (as valid for 3 years). Where a player qualifies to play in a 'higher' Final (eg, finish top 3 in Playoffs, or Bronze, and qualify to play in next highest final) then if that player goes on to win a higher value prize in the higher final, then ONLY that higher value prize is awarded - a player can only win one prize during a Finals Weekend, which will be the highest valued prize - this does NOT include any Grand Final Stack / Seat, which will still be awarded if a Silver Qualifier earns a seat in the Gold Final and wins a Grand Final Stack with a lesser valued prize than the Silver Final - in this instance they would win / retain the highest value prize (from Silver final) PLUS get the Grand Final Stack / Seat – however, only one Grand Final stack can be won during any league period’s ‘Finals Weekend’. Prize packages will be added to LPPL Member Accounts for them to be used via the LPPL online shop for Vegas, International Trip, National Weekends etc.

League Ranking Feb 2021 Feb 1st 2021

We’re bringing something new to LPPL for Feb, replacing the usual area league system - but that'll be back for Mar 😊 

All players will be ‘ranked’ based on their qualification from the Dec/Jan leagues, as follows
 
Gold Qualifiers = Gold League Ranking
Silver Qualifiers = Silver League Ranking
Bronze Qualifiers = Bronze League Ranking
All Others = Qualifier League Ranking
 
Running from 1st to 28th Feb, all players will start off ranked as above on 1st Feb, and with 4 x weekly playing sessions throughout Feb will have points awarded from all regular league daily games towards their WEEKLY score, with players within ‘each ranking league’ competing against EACH OTHER on a WEEKLY BASIS.
 
So, all players who qualify for the Gold Final from Dec/Jan, from all 8 leagues, will be ranked in the ‘Gold League Ranking’ and compete against each other throughout Week 1 (as will Silver /Bronze/Qualifier).
 
At the end of EACH Week, the 'top players' will transfer to the league above, the 'middle players' will remain in their same League Ranking, and the bottom players will transfer to the league below – AND POINTS WILL BE RESET TO ZERO FOR THE START OF THE NEW WEEKLY LEAGUE RANKINGS.  
 
So, players will ‘transfer’ at the end of each of the 4 weekly sessions, and at the end of Week 4, after transfers have been made, players qualify for the Finals Weekend from those positions:
 
Thu 11 Mar: QUALIFIERS League Ranking Final
Fri 12 Mar: BRONZE League Ranking Final
Sat 13 Mar: SILVER League Ranking Final
Sun 14 Mar: GOLD League Ranking Final
Mon 15 Mar: GRAND FINAL Playoff
 
Gold League Ranking Final
Silver League Ranking Final
Bronze League Ranking Final
Qualifier League Final for all players who meet the qualifying criteria
 
The prizes for the Finals Weekend are
 
Gold Final
1st Las Vegas Package + Grand Final 50k stack
2nd Las Vegas Package + Grand Final 25k stack
3rd International Poker Trip + Grand Final 25k stack
4th International Poker Trip + Grand Final Playoff 15th March
5th National Poker Weekend + Grand Final Playoff 15th March

Fri 12 Mar: BRONZE FINAL Top 3 win a seat into the SILVER FINAL
Sat 13 Mar: SILVER FINAL Top 3 win a seat into the GOLD FINAL

RUNNING ALONGSIDE the above will also be a NEW WEEKLY FINAL run as 5 x 8-handed tables with qualification via the usual (36) GOLDEN TICKETS plus the WEEKLY Top Dog (4) from each of the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Qualifiers League Rankings at the end of each week, with prizes as follows:
 
1st = International Poker Trip + Grand Final Playoff
2nd = National Poker Weekend + Grand Final Playoff
3rd = National Poker Entry + Grand Final Playoff
4th = Grand Final Playoff
5th = Grand Final Playoff
6th = Grand Final Playoff
7th = Grand Final Playoff
8th = Grand Final Playoff
 
The Weekly Finals are on Fridays:
 
12th Feb (league 1st-7th Feb)
19th Feb (league 8th-14th Feb)
26th Feb (league 15th-21st Feb)
5th Mar (league 22nd-28th Feb)
 
*The usual Golden Tickets (36) will be awarded prior to the Weekly Top Dog Golden Tickets, which will drop down until won by a player without a Golden Ticket, and the usual ‘max 1 prize per player’ will remain for the Finals Weekend.  Grand Final Playoff tickets will NOT drop down - subsequent entries won by the same player will simply reduce the number of players in the Grand Final Playoff.  At the end of each week the transferring ‘numbers’ and ‘max games to total leaderboard score’ will be reviewed.
 
All LPPL packages are non-transferable and are valid for winners' to use for 3 years, after which they will expire.  A player may use any 'subsequent' package for a partner / friend to travel with them and share accommodation on the same trip, or of course, use it themselves for a different trip (as valid for 3 years).  Where a player qualifies to play in a 'higher' Final (eg, finish top 3 in Playoffs, or Bronze, and qualify to play in next highest final) then if that player goes on to win a higher value prize in the higher final, then ONLY that higher value prize is awarded - a player can only win one prize during a Finals Weekend, which will be the highest valued prize - this does NOT include any Grand Final Stack / Seat, which will still be awarded if a Silver Qualifier earns a seat in the Gold Final and wins a Grand Final Stack with a lesser valued prize than the Silver Final - in this instance they would win / retain the highest value prize PLUS get the Grand Final Stack / Seat.
 
Prize packages will be added to your LPPL Member Account, and 'cash only' prizes paid by Party Poker direct to your PP player account in the week following the Finals Weekend.
 
 

Future LPPL events... Jan 23rd 2021

With much regret, with only 6 weeks to go to the planned FOPP starting on 4th March, and with still so much uncertainty around coronavirus, we've had to take the decision to cancel the FOPP and look to host it at a future date.

We're determined to ensure as best we can that we get together asap in a live poker environment, and therefore can confirm the following events are planned:

Feb League - something different!

Mar 5th - 7th:  FOPP Online

Jul 1st - Jul 8th: Las Vegas (flights from Heathrow etd 1st 16:40; eta 9th 15:45 - 7 nights)

Sep 3rd - 5th:  Interleague (Northfield Cons Club, Midlands)

Oct 30th - Nov 2nd:  Malta Poker Festival (3 nights)

Nov 25th - Nov 28th: FOPP (incl National Championship & Grand Final)

Whilst of course all the above are still subject to final confirmation, we're sure just like us you'll be glad of something to plan for, and to look forward to - poker and great company with a few drinks :) and we very much look forward to seeing many of the #LPPLdysfunctionalfamily ASAP.
