Yeah, Stars is definitely faster than Party, especially on the high-speed tables.

I used to get a solid 100 hands per table per hour when I 4-tabled there.

I've found that I can 6-table 6-max profitably if I drop to easy limits like 1/2. But I wouldn't try it in my usual game.

Also - if your calcs are correct then it looks like $480/wk you are earning (125 wks) or $24 an hour.

So it's only $3/hr (or 0.5BB/hr) per table.

Long road to make it to $60k.

Yea, Bob.

Isn't the state of poker bonuses and incentives fantastic?

To think we are talking about earning 25K a year basically on a part-time basis, and 60K a year full time like its no big deal.

(I'm not saying it is easy to do, in fact someone playing that much full time would deserve every inch of that Porsche, but it is just really unbelievable if you think about it. Playing poker online for an incentive that many people would wish they could earn in one year on their full time job)

Speaking of races, I think Stars should give a little bonus of some kind to make supernova and have a leaderboard and all that kind of crap.

It would add a little entertainment to January methinks.

This is actually a pretty nifty idea.

i might be into this but I think one marathon is enough for me. But it would be fun to see...and would encourage even more players to rack up those FPP's even faster.

In my figures, I used only an assumption of 75 hands per table per hour, which would make my 4 table example much better if anyone cares to figure that.

I think you guys are on to something here given all the publicity stars got from the gigabet leaderboard challenge. It would be interesting if Stars offered a Ferrari instead of the Porsche for just the FIRST person to hit 3,000,000 FPP's and then revert back to Porsches for 3 mil.

130 weeks X 20 hours X 8 tabling X 60 hands/hour X 0,25$ rake = 312 000 paid in rake so the Porsche is around 20% rakeback not that bad but i prefer cash buy a nissan 350Z Roadster and play the WSOP for free hehe......

You should be able to do that with the concierge service option. That way you would be able to get a differnt car, like a 911 or Corvette instead of the crappy Cayman S.

Oh and I think I'm going to make a actual thread about this but I made a calculator for the Stars VIP program that will calculate various thing. You can download it here
