We’ve made several improvements to our PokerStars VIP Club benefits for the coming year.
Our new VIP Stellar Rewards program delivers players cash as they reach designated VPP
levels throughout the year. We’ve also made it easier to earn SilverStar status and maintain
Supernova status. Our new quarterly $1,000,000 VIP freerolls will reward hundreds of players.

New: VIP Stellar Rewards
All VIP Club members can take advantage of our new VIP Stellar Rewards program. We’re
starting out by offering $10 to all players who reach 750 VPPs this year. The rewards just add
up from there, with $50 rewards starting at 5,000 yearly VPPs and $100 rewards starting when
players reach 50,000 VPPs. The final VIP Stellar Reward at 90,000 VPPs brings the total up to
$1,000 cash for each player. To claim your share, just reach the required number of VPPs and
purchase the appropriate VIP Stellar Reward from the PokerStars VIP Store for just 1 FPP.

Changes in VPP Earning
We’ve simplified our method for awarding VPPs to players. Many players will earn VPPs and
FPPs faster, especially in tournaments and Sit & Go's.

$1,000,000 Quarterly VIP Freerolls
Players spoke, and we listened. New $1,000,000 quarterly VIP freerolls will replace the old
$75,000 weekly freerolls. All Supernova VIPs can enter these tournaments for free. GoldStar
VIPs and PlatinumStar VIPs will have the opportunity to earn their way in through FPP entry

Battle of the Planets
Battle of the Planets - Sit & Go Tournament Leaderboard

Get ready for blast off, because PokerStars new weekly Leader Board
promotion is truly out of this world. The Battle of the Planets gives
PokerStars Sit & Go players a chance to compete against each other for
prizes worth more than $3,000,000 per year.
In the Battle of the Planets, PokerStars multi-player Sit & Go tournaments have been separated
into eight divisions, all named after planets in our solar system. Everyone can take part in the
competition, no matter how high or low stakes they play. Each planet represents a different range
of buy-ins, from Mercury ($1-$2.99) to Jupiter ($300+).

Each of the eight planet divisions are split into two individual Leader Boards. The first is the Low
Orbit Leader Board, which is tailored towards casual and recreational players. The second is the
High Orbit Leader Board, which is more suited to high volume players.

Each planet division has its own weekly prize pool, distributed evenly between the two Leader
Boards. This gives all players a chance to win some serious cash prizes, no matter what their
level of experience or the size of their bankroll.

But that’s not all. Every player that finishes in the top 10 of any weekly Sit & Go Leader Board will
receive an exclusive ticket to a monthly tournament. This “Battle of the Planets” will see the
highest ranking players from each division come together to fight it out in a triple shootout, for a
monthly prize pool of $50,000!
Multi-Table Tournament Leaderboard
Multi-Table Tournament Leader Board

Every time you place in the top 15% of a regular multi-table tournament,
you will be awarded Tournament Leader Board (TLB) points. The
amount of points varies depending on the buy-in of the tournament, the
number of entries and the position in which you finish.
TLB points count towards the following three leader boards.

Weekly Leader Board
The player with the highest weekly TLB score gets an opportunity to play against a member of
Team PokerStars Pro in a heads-up challenge match the following Sunday. The Weekly TLB
winner gets to choose the game, with the match itself taking place at 14:00 ET on Sunday. The
prize pool starts at $1,000 and carries over to next week's match if the Team PokerStars Pro

Monthly Leader Board
The players that finish in the top 200 of the Monthly Leader Board will share $30,000 in cash
prizes, with first place claiming $5,000. In addition, the top 1,000 players will each receive a
ticket to a $20,000 Monthly TLB freeroll.

Yearly Leader Board
The winner of the Yearly Tournament Leader Board will win a five-stamp PokerStars Passport.
This includes buy-in, hotel accommodation and spending money for five major
PokerStars-sponsored live tournaments. The players that finish second and third will win
three-stamp and two-stamp PokerStars Passports respectively.
