$50,000 ONLINE National Championship
Saturday, December 12, 2020 @ 11:00 AM
Any players with an active PRO Membership are able to participate as long as they also earned a seat or have the token count to play in this event!
HOW DO YOU QUALIFY?
Pro Members will have a ton of new ways to qualify and play in our first ever ONLINE National Championship or redeem a 2020 or 2021 Championship Seat meant for the 2021 Vegas Championship if you are not willing to wait till June 2021 to redeem your championship seat.
For the first time in history, you can directly enter or rebuy in a Championship with 30 tokens! Yes this means if you have 60+ tokens, you will be able to play and rebuy or any combination of seats and/or tokens! Build up your token bankroll through the “ Token Tournaments” every night and you can play with your token balance!
Current Season (2021) and Past Championship Seat Winners (2020)
To give everyone maximum flexibility, any PRO Member with a seat that was won in either this current season (May 10th or later) or that still has a remaining seat from the 2020 Championship that they were planning to use. You can exchange that seat you would have otherwise used in the rescheduled Vegas 2021 Championship.
If you do exchange a Championship Seat you will no longer be able to use it in Vegas 2021. Invited players based on super league will be able to buy-in to the championship, but those that won a seat only will no longer be able to participate.
STEP 2 Tournaments
Players who win a seat in any “Step 2 Tournament” after May 10th, can use that seat in the Online Championship.

Q: I have a BPO Championship Seat… how do I exchange it for 30 tokens? A: Members will log into their BarPokerOpen.com account and view their player dashboard. If you have a valid BPO Seat there will be a link asking to “REDEEM /EXCHANGE SEAT” for you.
Q: Can I redeem more than one BPO Championship Seat? A: Yes! In your dashboard you may repeat the Redemption/Exchange process again to exchange a BPO Seat for 30 more tokens. -OR- A: Yes! During the redemption process it will ask you how many Seats you would like to exchange. Select the proper amount you are going to exchange. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROCESS IS IRREVERSIBLE. Once you exchange a BPO Seat for 30 tokens, this is permanent and may not be undone, even if you do not participate in the event or use a rebuy.
Q: Which Championship Seats are eligible to be exchanged? A: There are 3 different Seats that players may have and may be exchanged.
First, is a 2020 Seat valid previously for the June 2020 Vegas National Championship that has been rescheduled for Day 1A of the 2021 Championship. No players have more than one of these seats remaining. All chances to utilize additional 2020 seats have long expired with the Masters Tournament and the Super High Roller Tournament. If you use this seat, you will not be able to play in Day 1A of the 2021 Championship.
Second, a new 2020/2021 BPO Seat earned on or after May 10th, 2020. Players may have more than one 2020/2021 BPO Seat earned after May 10th, 2020 because this season is currently going on. Log into your dashboard to see your personal Seat balance.
Third, a $50K Seat won online. We are hosting 2 Satellites a Day and players can win $50K Seats directly and only for this tournament.
Q: If I don’t have a BPO Seat or 30 Tokens, how do I qualify?
A: Bar League PRO members may compete daily in $50,000 Championship Satellites at 11pm (est). One $50K Entry is awarded for every 30 entries, and the winner of the Satellite also wins their Seat into the Monthly $5,000 TOC. Also, there are daily Token Builder Tournaments at 9:00pm (est) in which 1st place typically wins 15+ tokens. If you already have a decent token bank, but don’t quite have 30 tokens yet this could be a perfect event for you. $100 is added to 1st place of every Token Builder Tournament as well! Lastly, a quick way to earn a pair of tokens is to upgrade to an Elite Bar League PRO member.

Bar Poker Open will mail a prize check.
