View Full Version : Pokerstars Bonus Question: FPP

10-13-2005, 04:37 PM
I just deposited in Starts for the first time to recieve the 150$ bonus....i was playing on the 1/2 tables, but the FPP's accumalated SO slowly. So, i was wondering what the optimal small stake is to play to get FPP's the quickest.
.5/1, 1/2, 2/4 or 3/6 (although i would be heavily under bankrolled for 3/6)

thanks in advance

$2/4 and up is optimal. $1/2 games require a $15 pot (7.5BB) to earn an FPP. so it's slower, but still doable.

if you're underbankrolled, play somewhere else for now and come back later. Poker Stars bonuses don't expire.

I play 3/6 and it clears faster than Party.

Yeah, just to concur, PA is right (as usual). It clears well at 2/4, and the games are plenty beatable as well (though not as soft as at Party).

ive been doing 5/10, 10/20, and 2/4 pl and its fast enough.

cant really contribute as to lower limits.

try the LO8

2/4 full games or 6max? everytime I go on there the average pot size for a 2/4 full game is like $22, doesn't seem that great.

I find the full games to be beatable, but I tend to enjoy playing rocks more than most people.

Might not be helpful to you, but FWIW I cleared it pretty quickly playing 0.5/1 NL 6-Max.

Edit: Added 6-Max.

If they are weak tight, then bring them on.

try SnG's clears fairly fast for me playing $15 and $25 turbos.

I think it clears much faster if you play stud but I may be wrong.

If you 4 table 1/2 or 2/4 stud I think it takes maybe 6 hours.

I found there was usually 2-3 good full games 3/6 to 5/10 most of the day except late at night (but I am counting 7cs tables too) I finished this bonus up 130bb.

I just deposited $600 purely for the bonus and I play the $11 and $22 SnG's so worked out to 75 $22's to clear or 150 $11's.There's a whole page on bonuses on Stars website explaining what FPP's you earn for cash and SnG/MTT fees,so check it out.

if you're worried about the bonus expiring, they don't.

i deposited a small amount on stars in may when they were having bonuses and it cleared before my new one did.
