I couldn't figure this out from that link, but here's a quick question:

If you earn the 1500 VPPs in just a few days to get to silver status, do you immediately start earning the extra 50% in FPPs, or does that not go into effect until the following month?

As far as I understand, once you earn that level for the month, you immediately get those benefits untill you lose that status.

Exactly what I was thinking. We need a big bonus to celebrate the introduction of the VIP club [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Shame the FPP store isn't updated yet

If you click on the little images of cards you go to a page that describe each level of VIP. From there you can link the merchandise available to that level of player. They have some nice stuff. Too bad I will never get any of it.

The monthly qualification makes it pretty unlikely that I would be able to get to and stay at the higher levels.

Correct

Example: Between November 1, 2006 and November 13, 2006 you earn 10,000 VPPs. You are now a PlatinumStar VIP and instantly can take advantage of all the PlatinumStar perks. You will remain a PlatinumStar through November and December. The VPP counter in your Cashier lobby will reset on December 1; you then have until December 31st to earn 10,000 VPPs and maintain your PlatinumStar status.

I'm not going to comment on anything directly related to the VIP stuff now (until it's officially launched), but I used to earn 500 FPP per day 5 tabling $100 NL, which would've got me to platinum pretty quickly.

How many hours per day though? I don't want to sit at my computer, four tabling all day long. Of course, I only have 2000 FPPs in my account now, and only play 1/2 LHE. [img]/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

My first impression is that this is a good program for fixed limit players from 1/2 to 5/10 due to the FPP-structure and moderately good for 10/20 and up. Right?

It takes 3,000,000 FPPs to get a Porsche Cayman S, which retails for $60,000. It costs $600,000 in tournament entries to get 3,000,000 FPPs equating to 10% rakeback. However, the VIP program accelerates your acruement of FPPs. If you are a Gold Star member you get the equivalent of 20% rakeback, Platinum Star member 25%, Supernova 35%.
