was looking at the previous weeks sng scores and they just dont add up.ie jupiter, saturn, uranus,maybe it just doesnt show on my computer.but have a look high orbit scores dont match the low scores or vice versa which ever way you want to look at it paul.

Hi paulcmp500,

I'm not sure what you mean by they don't match up. The high orbit points are for blocks of 100 consecutive games where as the low orbit is for a block of 20 games so the points don't necessarily match up. However if you have concerns or more questions on this please contact support@pokerstars.com. Also you can find more info on how this promotion works here.

Cheers,

Chris

i agree with u m8 blocks of 100 for high 5X20 previous week in sng planets high orbit jupiter stevie 444 scores 1377 then you look at his low orbit it has a record of 243 x max5 possible score 1215???. then you look at 3rd place elpivesabe with 1344 the same scenario no low orbit at all with a top 100 showing 240. now we come to the next level descrepecies there 2 when you get to the lower levels its impossible to verify because the low orbits are so high a very concerned player. paul

Hi paulcmp500,

On Jupiter the player pool is small and to play high orbit of 100 x $300+ is $30,000 a week.

The best low orbit score attempting 5 blocks of 20 games for both stevie444 and elpivesable was less than 240 points to even show in the top 100 on the low orbit leader board.

If you look at VSociable who came 61st (as only a few have the bank roll) at high orbit you will see in the 5 blocks of 20 at low orbit did achieve a maximum 255 points for 93rd place.

If you drop down to Mercury $1.50 games. I may play 40-50 a week and know the threshold to make the low orbit leader board is about 450 points which I've never achieved. But many better players at these stakes reach high orbit of 100 games and here the player pool is huge.

I agree with u one can have a good high orbit hand. or a good low orbit hand im not here to say hey i got a 500 low orbit hand but only managed a 1200 high orbit hand im here to say one got a high orbit of 1377 and the same person got a low orbit max 243 x 5 max work that 1 out simple maths. then work out elpivesabe score no low top 100 but the min top 100 was 240 x 5 1200 but had a rating of 1374 again simple maths.

Hey paul,

You may be thinking the low orbit scores accumulate into high orbit? No it's how many points you earn over 100 games at high orbit. Then if you are very rich and have the time, do another 100 in the same week and try to get better than 735 points as VSociable did who came 61st.

think of it this way m8 first forget about vsociables his score wasnt the issue.no matter how many high orbits you play 100 200 etc etc. if you manage to get on the high orbit leaderboard and with a score of lets say 1500 your minimum low orbit HIGH SCORE would be 300. now work out if your low orbit HIGH SCORE is 243 its impossible to get 1377 on a high orbit no matter how many games you play. paul

I used to make the Mercury High Orbit regularly playing 6 Max Limit STTs.

You get more points for bigger field games so to hit the low orbit, you're better playing 45 Man SnGs but you will be far more consistent playing low field games and as such are better suited for the high orbit leaderboard prizes.

1500 seems an average to make the High Orbit, so that's 300 points per 20 block. In 6 Max you get 37 points for a win and 19 for a 2nd (this may be wrong, just what I have in my memory)

I might have a blast at the BOTP this week but I'm playing $3.50 and not fully rolled for this level (have to keep a close eye on results)

Hi Paul,

I always wondered the same, how was is it possible.. There's a detail that might help you understand, Low orbit only counts for the 1st 200 games, after those 200, you'll only be playing to the high orbit.. I hope this helps.. this of course implies that those guys play 200+ games a week..

If you don't mind me asking what games and level are you playing?

best regards,
