The Professional Poker Fraternity (PPF) is a group of online poker professionals who meet the qualifications to play on the biggest stages in the world. The organization was founded in 2012 and currently has over 40 members from around the world. The group runs regular live tournaments around the world, with members traveling between London, Paris, and Sydney to compete. They also hold monthly $25,000 poker tournaments where experts from around the world compete for a share of the huge prize pool.
Each month the community votes on who they think has performed the best over the previous month, with the winner being featured in the next month’s newsletter. Check out the current top 10 performers here. You can also read the entire August newsletter, including the monthly results, here. In addition to the monthly newsletter, the PPF runs a number of smaller scale “mini” tournaments throughout the year where members can get back into the swing of things following a break due to travelling or other obligations. These are great for building trust with new and existing customers and generating extra revenue for the organization.
The Math Behind The PPF System
The monthly $25,000 Professional Poker Fraternity (PPF) online poker tournament is one of the highlights of the month, not just for the fame and fortune it brings in, but also because it’s such a unique and interesting format. The system is fairly complex, but in case you’re curious, here’s a run-down of how it all works.
The First Step: Create A Login
To get started you’ll need to create an account on the PPF site. Once you’ve created an account you’re ready to move on to the next step.
Step Two: Join A Poker Room
The next step is to join a poker room. As a member of the Professional Poker Fraternity you’ll be able to play in a number of poker rooms that have been vetted by the organization’s admins. Joining a poker room is easy, you just have to be over the age of 18 and live in good standing with your gaming peers. Once you’ve joined a room you’ll be able to access all its games including:
- Eagle Ridge
- Pai Gow
- Let It Ride
- Aurora Borealis
- Seven Card Stud
As a member of the Professional Poker Fraternity you won’t just be playing in these games, you’ll also be able to take part in the organization’s monthly $25,000 Poker Tournament. The organization sets the date for the monthly $25,000 online poker tournament around one week before the end of each month.
Step Three: Verify Your Details
The next step is to verify your details. This step is important because the organization hasn’t just trusted a random poker room to process their members’ payments and handle banking, they’ve also verified that you are who you say you are. To do this, you’ll have to verify your personal information, including:
- Phone Number
- Date of Birth
- Email Address
Once you’ve entered this information you can move on to the next step.
Step Four: Deposit Funds
The final step is to deposit funds. This step is important because it’s where you’ll be entering your credit card information. To ensure the security of your personal information, the organization requires you to deposit funds using a credit card. You’ll need to check your bank account to ensure there are funds to make this payment.
You can make this payment in one of two ways:
- Use a debit card to transfer funds from your bank account
- Enter a payment method at the checkout stage when buying something from an online store
If you’re new to online poker, creating an account and playing in the monthly $25,000 poker tournament may seem like too much effort to simply make a payment. However, considering the money you can make in the long run, and the level of security the organization provides, it’s likely worth the effort. Here’s a short video from one of the organization’s admins, Will, who explains how and why they designed this payment system:
