I hope that's a sarcastic remark....lol

Party Poker is a joke of a site, it's like playing Farmville or Zinga poker or any games found on Facebook. All their missions and badges are for kids to play and not for learning.

The only reason I play there occasionally, it's for the WPT satellites.

Now back to PokerStars Mission
Mission completed, I'm registered for the "Advanced1" $250K
Hope not much people register
Good Luck to all

Check out the link in the opening post re:

"Twitter Giveaway

Previous thread Possible 1 Mission. Thanks Roland for the suggestion.


I have also won a $22 ticket from the Twitter Sphere for my 'Very Easy' 10VPP mission. The ticket is also valid for the Micro-Millions-098 Main Event entry.

Hey everyone.

I signed up for the Possible 1 mission yesterday and have played a bit, enough where I've generated a little over 100 vpp, but it is not registering anything under the My Bonus Status.

I am currently earning out my First Deposit bonus so am wondering if this is why I am not getting credit towards the Mission goal.

If that is the case, I guess I get it, but I haven't seen any fine print that says you can't be doing both.

If anyone has an answer, I'd appreciate it.

Cheers,

Mis

Once you register you don't need to even be logged in when the shootout begins

Ok, I got a response from support. The reason why my VPPs aren't counted is because VPPs are collected for bonuses in chronological order. Since I am in the process of collecting them for prior bonuses, they won't be counted in the November Missions until these prior bonuses are complete.

In other words, I can't participate as I don't see how I will get all those prior VPPs and then complete the Mission requirements.

Good luck to all.

Yes that is mentioned in the Terms and Conditions of the promotion, as VPPs earned cannot count towards two promotions at the same time. I hope you will at least be able to clear your prior promotion in order to take part in another of the Mission weeks.

Good luck!

Clearing out the VPPs for the bonuses is definitely in the plan

The prize is entry into a tournament that is somewhat like a lottery, where players are basically forced all in every hand. The longer you survive the bigger your reward.

Do you have to earn them points in one sitting? or does it mean you have to earn that many points in say playing 6max zoom?
Only asking as I play 2nl Zoom and play around 20k-30k hands per week. What would the best mission for me be?

That's just confused me even more!

"And best of all, you don’t even need to play a Mission All-in Shootout tournament to secure a prize!"


This implies you win two prizes, the shootout tourney, and this mystery prize I refered to.
