How do I enter the tournament?

If you’ve set up your account, you’ve probably already been prompted to download the PokerStars gaming software. This is free and available on desktop or on your mobile on iOS or Android.

The following steps show how to register for the tournament on iOS, but you can find the steps to follow on your computer further down this article.


1. Download the PokerStars app
 

To download the mobile app, head to your app store on iOS or Android and install.


2. Search for the tournament
 


Once the app is downloaded, hit ‘Search’ and click through the relevant screens. You’ll want to press ‘Tournaments’ when asked what type of game and then go to ‘Search’ when asked what you want to play.

In the search bar, type ‘Oddschecker’ and you’ll see the Oddschecker tournament there.


3. Register for the tournament
 


Hit ‘Register now’ at the bottom of your screen.

Make sure you’ve got enough in your account to cover the $5.50 buy-in amount, which will be deducted when entering your password in the next step.


4. Enter the tournament password to complete entry
 


The final step is to enter the tournament password, which is ODDSCHECKER for every tournament.

Once you enter the password and hit ‘Unlock and Play’ your registration will be complete.

As it says on this screen, once you press that button, your $5.50 buy-in amount will be deducted from your account balance.

How do I register for the tournament on my laptop?

If you’re looking to play on your laptop or computer, the registration process is a little different. Make sure you follow the process below as you might struggle with the search function otherwise.


1. Download the PokerStars app
 

If you’ve just signed up to PokerStars through Oddschecker, you will have already downloaded the PokerStars web software. If not, you need to go to pokerstars.uk and download it.


2. Search for the tournament
 

FOLLOW THIS STEP CLOSELY.

You need to go to ‘All Games’ then ‘Tourney’ and search for Oddschecker.

BUT make sure you toggle filters off with the toggle button on the right hand side, just above where it says 'Save Filter', as shown below. (It starts off green, and when you toggle it, it will go grey)


The default search is set up to show regular public tournaments rather than private tournaments, so if you don’t toggle this, ours won’t appear in the list.


3. Register for the tournament
 


Once you’ve got to the tournament home screen, hit ‘Play Now’ to register.

Make sure you’ve got enough in your account to cover the $5.50 buy-in amount, which will be deducted when entering your password in the next step.


4. Enter the tournament password to complete entry
 


A window will appear where you’ll need to enter the tournament passcode, which is ODDSCHECKER for every tournament.

Hit ‘Confirm’ and your entry will be complete.


We'll see you at the table!

Remember, the tournaments kick-off at 7pm every Friday and Sunday, with late registration until 8pm, so get yourself ready and registered now so that you’re good to go for the next one.

If you’re a new customer, don’t forget to grab the PokerStars welcome bonus by signing up through Oddschecker.

We’ll be playing along with you guys every week, giving plenty of updates in the build-up to the tournament and chatting to you all live throughout on our Twitter channel. See you there and good luck!
