I finished great in the NAPL ROOKIE DIV. tourney last evening, made a little change and have turned it in to some little dollars today, finally hit 20vpps for the month at 10:11 central time, will that get me active for April.??????

Yep, if you earned 20 VPPs in March, you should be "active" status for April in PSO.

Congrats, and g'luck to you. Also, welcome to the forum here.

Don't get too upset if it doesn't show you as active in the leaderboard right away. Sometimes it takes a few days to process that first active month.

I'm taking it that the points came from a tourney, and not the ring game route. Since the tourney must have started before midnight, east coast time, you made it. If you got those points via a ring game at that time, 10:11 Central Time is 11:11 East Coast Time, which means you earned those last points in March. Talk about great timing.

As to the tournament vpps, I do believe the ruling factor is when the game began, even though the vpps are not awarded until you are eliminated. If I am wrong, you again lucked out when you got eliminated 49 minutes before April.

Hope that is the case. Don't be surprised if there is some dispute and the need for an official ruling from PokerStars.
