I recently had a little discussion with Chris about this and was curious how everyone else got their fpp? I read a thread on it about 2 months ago. Seems like a fpp thread should be stickied so as to give people a clue where to go if they're having trouble grinding fpp.

I used to get mine just sitting at the .01/.02 with $0.80 and playing only the top tier premium hands and trying to get my fpp off the shove monkeys.

With my bank as small as it is Chris suggested i play the .05/.10 limit games but I HATE limit holdem, so I adjusted and took the idea to the .04/.08 7cd stud hi/lo games instead. It's been working for me a little bit and I've recovered some hold'em losses.

Just had a session of 19 hands that made me $3. Granted I was getting good cards, but it seems like the min limit of 7cd stud is full of people who can't read both the hi and low of their hands.

19 hands, 8 showdowns, 50% or better win in all 8 with 2 scoops. $0.90 paid in rake. Total gain $3.02 cash and .675 fpp.

I play .04/.08 stud and vpp's seem to come pretty quickly.
I almost always make $$ as well.

There is a rake nearly every hand. If you are patient and wait for decent cards it is easy to take $$ from the MANY players who have no patience, no clue or neither one.

I strictly play the .05/.10 limit holdem tables and play a couple of tables at a time. I earned my 20 vpps already for next month just playing a couple of hours a day at those stakes. I also play in some MTT's but most of my vpps come from playing .05/.10 limit holdem.
