Default Poker Stars sucks...

I've played ~3500 hands there and I've only got 163 FPP points... I'm going to need 300 before I clear my god damn bonus.

Is pokerstars the hardest site to clear?

you will want to play at least $2/4 LHE or $1/2 NL to clear the PS bonus efficiently. otherwise, save them for when you can move up, since they never expire.

I think it's a great bonus, better than Party. Then again I play 5/10.

Its a lot easier clearing with S&Gs. I mixed mine up; about 10-20 S&Gs and the rest 1/2 - 2/4 Stud and clered it fast

You probably don't play high enough. I can clear one with just a couple hours of play.

It certainly isn't the fastest clearing bonus, but there are many other sites that are worse.

If they would only raise their rake to .50 at $5.00 like Party has, then this bonus would kick butt.

I play at Stars 1/2 when clearing the bonus and am very happy with the clearance rates (but then again I also don't mind PR's clearance rates at 1/2 either). It's especially nice because you can play FIVE tables at a time, increasing your potential hourly rate even more.
