Moved to a more appropriate forum.

With a $10 bankroll I'd suggest the 1/2c cash tables. Play your 'A' game.

It's the best advice I can give. Maybe someone else can come up with a better suggestion.

Wishing you every success at the tables!

ok..this is weird...which one do I go on?

1. If I go to Cashier, then middle bottom button, My Bonus Status, it says I have collected 57 vpp.

2. If I go to Cashier, then VIP Status, it says I have 20.48 vpp.

The whole confusing thing!!!!! and then you have FPP too.....it needs to be simpified methinks, I don't understand!!!!!!!!!

As Keldraco's figures suggest, play TAG for an hour a day at $2NL and you should get there with minimum risk to your BR.

1/2c no limit holdem set your filters up in your poker client, set them to 40% vpip that way you avoid nitty tables, take notice of how many hands are played per hour before you join one i.e 150+ hands the tables pretty much just started and filled up instantly, look for a table with less hands played per hour it means the players are playing hands, then sit back and play a TAG style only playing good starting hands and watch them vpp,s shoot up


GL in future. (Paul)

The reality is play the game you are good at, boost your bank roll and don't worry about VPP's yet.

I am guessing to want to attend a restricted training or watch a restricted video or earn the higher prize in the leugue. all of these things will be there next month or the month after so consentrate on your strongest game and soon you will have the VPP's you need without thinking about it.

you can use this to see how many you will earn at you current game.

I am a very agressive player sometimes at the OMAHA tables though and in alot hands lol so I guess thats how I make alot of points fast but u can also loose your cash fast as some crazy people on the omaha tables who refuse to fold so beware but sometimes can pay off other times I play tight on the 5c/10c NLH tables and u can make points easy eanough steady away on them tables just depends how fast u want to make them I supose and if u are only wanting 20vpp I guess u might be better sticking with 5c/10c NLH tables and hope u make plenty points GL

I can only suggest to think about your Bankroll Management. It looks like you want to rush through your money.... I just had to step back to a lower limit because everything I had build was gone at the next level within days . But I try to get back on track and then give it another try.

Unfortunately due to the new pokerstars way of earning vpp's you cant just sit at a table and wait for the other players to pump up the pot to earn you vpp's.

My new suggestion would be to play a limit game, somewhere along the lines of $0.25/$0.50. Yes i know that means buying in for around $10 but if you do not have enough time in the day to play hours and hours of $0.01/$0.02 NL it is very fast. Also as a bonus it means you cant lose your entire stack in one hand as you're playing limit

Hope i helped and good luck earning 20vpp! ive nearly hit 750vpp this month and i play $1/$2 limit Razz!

Grade B had it nailed with his statement of it will be different for players because we have varying abilities and have to find the game that best suite you and your style of play.

As an American it has been a long time since I've had to accumulate VPPs for something but still believe that PLO8 is the best way to do this. Though it isn't best to play like this I feel this is a good decision based on you could be playing for the low or the high. (Any instructor will tell you it's best to be playing for both the high and low.)

This would/could (again it comes to playing styles and ability) save your limited bankroll while you attain your goal of 20VPPs as a half pot is better than no pot.

My warning to you would be to not chase pots for the purpose of getting you VPPs because this will easily lead to you losing your bankroll and still not achieving your goal .

Good luck in whatever you chose and please update us on whether or not you were able to get those VPPs.
