Pokerstars is giving you a shot at making some extra cash this year with a few changes to the VIP club challenges, you’ll be able to set yourself a goal for how many VPP’s you think you’ll be able to achieve over 2013. This is a great incentive and motivation to play more poker especially for those PSO’ers who write their fantastic blogs of their goals each year

The new promotion is called “Set Your Goals” and the more VPP’s you set yourself, the more cash rewards you will be able to get your hands on.

Have a great new year all and hope you all succeed in your goals

So if I'm understanding this promo right, the only goals available to choose from are 100k, 200k and 300k. So unless your gunning for supernova status (which is what, 1% of pokerstars players, and pretty much no one here at the PSO) then this isn't really worth batting an eyelid at.

I am getting it right, aren't I?

I'm just wondering is the 5,000 VPPs returnable? After all 5,000 is nearly $60 anyway. If it's not returned then it's not a good promotion.

I'm churning over a few games now and I'd really like to be SN but there's very little chance of me getting the 5,000 by the end of the month.

Have to concur with the gist of the two posts above.

This is pretty unrealistic for the majority of PSO members. I'm aware it isnt specifically a PSO promotion but if it is going to be blogged and pushed on the PSO site then perhaps it should have been tweaked to be more realistic to PSO members.

Surely the data is available to show how many VPPs the average PSO member earns? Do the goals show any degree of realism compared against that?

Yup it is a totally unrealistic promotion for the majority of players here. It really should be amended to reflect an achievable target for most players.

Cheers

Definitely this promo is for a very tiny minority
But if you noticed, it was advertised in "PokerStars Support Center"
Like PSO does every time a new PokerStars promo is running, it is to advertise it here
It doesn't mean it's for PSO members only but for all players

Well, I'm registered for the 100,000 Vpp's and I hope to make it

Yeah, suppose stars still has to put word out and maximize the amount of people who see it and spread word to other people.

And good luck with the the 100k. It occurs to me that if you succeed, you'll probably be the only Supernova active in the PSO. Heck, your the only person I've seen round here who's PlatinumStar or above!
