Extra VIP Poker Club Reward Offers!

All through January the PokerStars VIP Club is offering you more value than ever with a selection of added incentives for all players.

Here’s what’s on offer:

Discount TCOOP Tickets & Merchandise Sale

The Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) is PokerStars brand-new tournament series running January 19-29, and players from every VIP Club level can buy event seats from the VIP Store at discounted rates. The higher your status, the better the discounts are, so make sure you aim high!

More than 100 items in the store will also be on offer for lower prices - some as much as 60% - from January 4 until the end of the month. You can find the discounted TCOOP tickets in the VIP Store, under ‘Online Tournament Tickets’. You can see a list of sale items under ‘2012 January Sale’.

Please Note: There are only a limited amount of TCOOP tickets in stock, and players are only able to purchase one of each discounted ticket on offer. Tickets purchased can only be used in TCOOP events.


VIP Ring Game Happy Hours

Earn 50% more VPPs and FPPs with Ring Game Happy Hours running every day from January 2-29. Simply play on any real money ring game table during one of the Happy Hours to earn your extra points. Happy Hours run at these times:

January 2-8: 04:00 ET
January 9- 15: 10:00 ET
January 16-22: 16:00 ET
January 23-29: 22:00 ET

Pace Bonus

PlatinumStar and Supernova VIPs can get a cash bonus the following month based on how many VPPs they earn in January. It’s your chance to earn big while planning your targets for 2012, as you make your way towards Milestone Cash Credits.



By earning a Pace Bonus with your January VPPs, you’ll be on pace to earn Supernova VIP status and possibly even a Milestone Cash Credit! You can calculate what kind of rewards you can expect in 2012 with the VIP Calculator.

Please Note: The Pace Bonus will be applied to player accounts before 12:00 ET on February 2, 2012. Players will have until 23:59 ET on February 29 to clear the bonus in full.

Special VIP Tournaments

January’s VIP Club tournaments are being boosted with extras prizes as follows:

Weekly $30,000 VIP Tournaments - running every Saturday in January at 14:30 ET. Buy-in is 100 FPPs and all SilverStar and higher VIPs can play. In addition to the cash prize pool, the winner each week will also be awarded a Citizen watch. Everyone at the final table meanwhile will win prizes as listed below:

Week 1: S h u r e headphones | Week 2: Customized leather wallet | Week 3: Oakley sunglasses
Week 4: Logitech Optical Mouse

Monthly $100,000 VIP Tournament - running Saturday, January 28 at 15:00 ET. Entry is free for GoldStar and higher VIPs, but SilverStar VIPs can also qualify via satellites. The winner will get a Tag Heuer watch, and everybody at the final table will also be awarded a pair of Porsche sunglasses.

Don’t forget that there are also Quarterly VIP Tournaments, each with a $1,000,000 prize pool, for Supernova and Supernova Elite VIPs. The next one takes place February 11, and GoldStar and PlatinumStar VIPs can win a seat via special satellites.

VIP Tournaments can be found under ‘Tourney’ > ‘VIP’ > ‘All’ in the PokerStars game client.

VIP TCOOP Satellites

As part of the VIP Club’s long-running series of online and live event satellites for SilverStar and higher VIPs, January’s tournaments will give you the chance to qualify for TCOOP events. They offer great value, and the perfect way to turn your FPPs into a huge payday.

See the ‘Tourney’ > ‘VIP’ > ‘All’ tab to view all VIP Satellites.

Not to complain about the promotion (I love promos! ), but I don't really see anything for me. A SilverStar STT grinder who only has ~1k FPP's right now.. It seems it's basically all for PlatinumStar+, cash game players, and MTT players.

I still have the BOTP shootouts to look forward to. IMO I've gotten my share of promos for the past month. lol

Good luck grinding, Cannon!

Actual contributions in other parts of the Forum = American Mods (and one assless chap wearing Canuck) : +500

General Housecleaning by everyone else: -1000

FPP's for nothing : Priceless

You may now tell George Costanza to start munching on that Redenbacher's...

With the changes in VPP method, the happy hours mean nothing to me, so instead of .25 VPP I'll get .375? Because as a TAG player I sure am not going to be generating any more VPP at the cash tables.

It all comes down to making it fit with your individual goals and objectives Merc,you know that.

And a good place for newer type players to see if those objectives fit within proper bankroll management principles would be to go to the BR management thread and....oh eff it,never mind.



Pokerstars----find the in you.

Though Stars would do well to heed the words of Amarillo Slim as to shearing and skinning the sheep. Some CAN tell the difference you know.

CannonLee, you keep preaching LAG as if it's the next evolution in poker from a TAG style. I don't believe in that. To me, LAG poker is losing poker. TAG is winning poker. So top telling people to swtich to a style that they would not be comfortable playing, and ending up losing money.

I agree with Iron, if you're a winning player at TAG, there is no reason to switch to LAG. Money comes first than vpp's
But if you're not a winning player, then you shouldn't worry about vpp's, you should be learning how to play poker

This is good advice, once you are winning the VPP's just follow naturally. I have 22 VPP's in two days without even thinking about it. Master the game you play most and the points will come, along with a BR that makes getting you VPP's much easier.

 

Getting PokerStars is easy: download and install the PokerStars game software, create your free player account, and validate your email address. Clicking on the download poker button will lead to the installation of compatible poker software on your PC of 51.7 MB, which will enable you to register and play poker on the PokerStars platform. To uninstall PokerStars use the Windows uninstaller: click Start > Control Panel and then select Add or Remove programs > Select PokerStars and click Uninstall or Remove.
