Historically, the VPPs earned in a ring game hand have been split equally between all players that were dealt into the hand. The new method will award VPPs proportionally based on each player's contribution to the pot.

 

The change is illustrated in the example below:
Five players participate in a hand of $1/$2 No Limit Hold'em.

Pre-flop:

•Player 1 raises to $6
•Player 2 folds
•Player 3 folds
•Players 4 (the $1 small blind) calls
•Players 5 (the $2 big blind) calls
Post-flop:

•Player 4 makes a bet of $9
•Player 5 moves all in for $21
•Player 1 folds
•Player 4 calls
•The remaining cards are dealt, and the $60 pot is awarded to Player 4
The pot is $60 in total. Players 4 & 5 contributed $27 each, and player 1 contributed $6. The total rake on this pot is $3, which is worth 16.5 VPPs.

Under the old method, all five players would receive an equal share of the points, i.e. 16.5 / 5 = 3.3 VPPs.

Under the new method, the VPPs will be awarded as follows:

•Player 1 contributed $6 (10% of the pot) and so receives 1.65 VPPs.
•Player 2 contributed $0 (0% of the pot) and so receives 0 VPPs.
•Player 3 contributed $0 (0% of the pot) and so receives 0 VPPs.
•Player 4 contributed $27 (45% of the pot) and so receives 7.43 VPPs.
•Player 5 contributed $27 (45% of the pot) and so receives 7.43 VPPs.

I play 8-10 tables and always focus on learning the game better and playing a LAG style. So im totally jacked on this new rule. Not to mention 24 tabling nits will have to cut their tables to continue with their SN status which = more fish regs at least until they try and get better at a LAG style
