After a lot of hard work made by the organisers - Juri Talu and Tomas Brikman, Baltic Pool League was for the first time introduced in 2011. The project has immediately drawn an attention of Olympic-Onlilne, who became the main sponsor of the event and due to that the name was changed into Olympic-Online Baltic Pool League. Although the League is open for all players, it is mainly focused on the players from the Baltic states. In the first edition of the event there were prticipating players from Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia.
The event consists of four qualification stages and a final stage where 32 best ranked men and 8 best ranked women rake part. Over 80 players in each stage of qualification each in men's and women's division had participated.
