Not at all difficult to obtain if you play fulltime, I have looked into Pokertracker, % of hands raked, how much I play etc. and would gather appx. 25,000 FPPs pr month. Half a month to get to Platinum and only 4 months to get to Supernova. But the FPP-structure means I would get almost the same reward for playing 5/10 as 15/30 or even 100/200. It rewards quantity, not playing at higher limit. If they could increase it to 2FPPs per hand raked at $3 from 15/30 and up it would be nice [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] (come on, Lee, it will make me change [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]) .

$3 rake is $3 rake, why would they care what you limit you play?

Ok, so make it $3 rake at all levels [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]. My point is that at 15/30 I am better off playing elsewhere as rake reaches $3 more often and other sites rewards me extra for this. At 5/10 (or even more so on 2/4-3/6) many pots are raked $1 or $2 and then Pokerstars offer seems to be better (Pokerstars reward $1-rake pots better than anything I have seen)

Ehh, about this 2001fp, I'd be better off bonus whoring 4 sites for $100 each, 4k hands; than trying to play 35k hands at poker stars. It's still cool they offer it, and maybe in a year I'll have 35k.

if you play enough tho, it doesnt take 35K raked hands to get 35K FPP points, you can earn 250% faster if you are nova.

still, its not going to be as good as a rakeback, or bonus whoring, but I think its still a pretty good deal. And im close to the point where im so fed up with party, that ill take a $$$ hit to play at a site that actually makes me feel like they value me as a player.

Crap, I spoke too soon.

The bonus FPP points don't count towards advancing your status. That blows.

In shorthanded limit games 10/20 and up what they offer is basically 13% rakeback once you reach Supernova. Nothing to write home about.
I'm very disappointed.

I 4table 5/10. Just doing some super quick math, it looks like the stars VIP program is worth $10/hr to me (less than that, since I can't redeem it for straight cash). Party rakeback is worth about $25/hr to me.

How much more in rake am I paying an hour at Party? Is it enough that I'm getting about the same value playing at either site?
