I wanna ask something about the VIP calculator on pokerstars how it works about cash games.
When i put 10 000 hands 6max $0.01-0.02 limits , it sad 210VPP
but i remember few weeks ago when i played cash games 10 000 hands im not even close to that number of VPP.
Im working on a challenge on next year abt cash game so i wanna know how the VPP calculacting is really working .

210 Vpp's for 10K hands is right

But reality could be different
For example, if you win lots of hands pre flop when players fold, you get 0 Vpp's (other players don't bet)
If you're not involved in lots of hands, you don't get that much Vpp's

In other words, if I play 10K hands but fold every time, I'll barely get 50 Vpp's

Hope this helps

I actually think 210 VPPs for that amount of hands is quite high. I play 2NL 6-max myself (Zoom however) and for 10k hands I'd expect just over 100 VPPs. But it all depends on how much of your/other players money is going into the pot. The amount of rake collected will determine the amount of VPPs awarded to the table and that will be split amoungst the players that contributed money to the pot, base on the amount they contributed. So the bigger the pots, the more rake, the more VPPs earned.

You might like to check out the article on Stars site as to how VPPs are earned, you can find it here.

Hope this helps,

Chris

This was done in 2011, which is very out dated, since there was a change in the VPP's calculation

They have 0.033 Vpp's per hand
PokerStars calculator has 0.021

If your VPIP is very low than your numbers will be very low and vice versa, if your VPIP is very high, than so will your VPP's

At 2NL mine was 0.015 per hand (I had a low VPIP)
