Maybe I'm thick, but I've searched the forum for info about the best way to earn VPP's and can't find anything. I found some mentions of needing 20 to get into the premier league, but that's about it. Anyone help?

All REAL MONEY games at Pokerstars generate rake and the VPPs are based on the rake Pokerstars earns.

If you play STTs/MTTs the number of VPPs earned will be the same for each player, based on the rake part of the buy-in, andwill be stated in the tourney lobby.

At cash tables the rake taken from each pot generates VPPs that are divided up to the players involved in that hand in proportion to the amount each contributes to the final pot - so you don't have to stay in the hand to showdown or win it to earn your share of the VPPS generated.

The BEST way to earn VPPs is to play the game you are best at, with proper bankroll management, and be a winning player, then grind some volume for cash profit and VPPs/FPPs.

Good luck
