What's the difference between VPP's and FPP's and what do you need to become active here? Also, is it VPP's that u need to get stuff from the VIP store. I know what FPP stands for what does VPP stand for?

Thanks.

FPP's are for the store and they accumulate quicker if not a bronze star.

vpp's are what you need to become active.

If you're bronze star, then 1vpp = 1FPP.

Fpps can also be used to enter satellite tournaments. Vpps are pokerstars tracking system for their vip status. Use the link that bulls provided, it explains it all there.

I always thought the only games a bronze star could enter are the turbo, or hyperturbo games, read bingo-game, or maniacs-galore. A check of the tournament schedule shows a weekly game that pays cash once a week for 50 Fpps. Best of all, the rounds are 15 minutes.

I played in a 11 fpp buy in satellite Friday night with unlimited buy ins, doubles, then a 30,000 add on at the end of the single or double buy in, I went through 100 fpp's b4 I knew it and was eventually knocked out at around 80th. They sure spend easier than they accumulate.

IMO its best to save your FPP's and use them to purchase a cash bonus.

Red Letterman took down the Sunday 2K not too long ago..this is a must play imo if you have 50 fpps..that is less than a dollar in trade so....got to play this one. There is another one that plays on saturdays but it's limit HE if you like that game. Look in Tourney>vip ... you may have to turn off filters to see them.
Best o' luck!

NOT........ (unless you are sure to lose)
There are plenty of satellites and tournaments worth playing
Look under VIP/Bronze
As I type this, there's over 240 satellites/tournaments (mainly satellites) for today in main lobby
Or accumulate them for the Turbo Takedown, minimum cash is $78
Better than the store, 2,500 FPP's will give you $25

This is just for NLH

I am not big into satellites but I may have to give them a try I usually save up to 25,000 and cash them in for $300

Satellites depends on the ratio's of the payouts (if 1 out 6, than yes)

Personally, I play every Turbo Takedown, weekly VIP, Monthly VIP and try to qualify for the Quarterly VIP. Now I'm using some for the SCOOOP satellites.

I used 33 fpp to get a $11 ticket for the Sunday Storm in a 11fpp rebuy.

Thanks to razzys for mentioning this one to me.
