you mean the battle of planets promo? AWESOME for sng grinders and sweet freeroll at end of month.

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/battle/ <--- everything there

Single table sng grinders seem to do better on the high orbit boards while multitable sng grinders seem to dominate the low orbits. At least that's how it used to be.

The triple shootout ticket, if you ever play well enough in any given week to earn it, is an amazing chance at serious money. Fun playing against people of all levels too, ie plats/nova's

If that is what you are playing for sure take a run at the BOP its a amazing perk.

I find that triple shoot out kind of weird to connect to it but whatever I guess.
People tend to sit it out or forget they qualified as well.

never played that shootout, like most things I did on stars I started out like a ball of fire then instead of grinding just started flame wars in here lol

I used to love the old $1.40 KO games, even if I didnt win I usually made enough in bounties to take care of the rake

My br isn't pimped out enough to pass up on it. Triple shootout chance at 12k is way too juicy to pass up. Even surviving 2 tables was something like $750 for 9th.

When you finish top 10 on the leaderboard for any given week, you get a ticket to the monthly 50k triple shootout de.

Edit: Bop is just an acronym for the Promo - Battle of Planets (Each tier is named after a planet)

Those KOs are fun but the structure is so slow.

Oh yeah make sure you know about the cutoff time for the week.
That messed me up the first time I made a run.

It was Sat. 9pm for me so Midnight eastern time zone.
So whatever your timezone is to that.

I think,dont hold me to this but if you start a tourney before the cutoff...say 5 minutes before it will not count towards the new week. Been awhile since I ran this but some guys would be on the board 100 SNGs by 5am that night.
