  • Made Silverstar for the first time

    I haven't hit Silverstar before but this month I have managed it for the first time.

    Doesn't change much but its a lovely bdage of honor

      I can never find anything good to spend them on... either I leak them on the crappy SNG games that don't lead to anything or I play the bronzestar freerolls.

      Would be good to have a plan as to what to spend them on

      I think i played a lot this month, lots of cash games (probably too much) and i dont think i will easily replicate silverstar next month, not unless i can win a few big cashes and improve my buy-in level, but no rush for that.

      I can always make chromestar, that isnt a worry for me.

      So minimum, i have the whole of April and May to enjoy Silverstar

        Iv saved up 2.5k fpp's and im starting spending them today in the big bang satty's. You can also grind them up in the mega path sattys to major events by registering in round 2 and grind the round 1 sats and so on. I think most people just waste them away but i want to see how much i can make out of my fpp's as it is essentially our rake back and the big bang satty look like great value imo.umbup:umbup: It took me a while to make my first silver status, but once you know what it takes its pretty easy iv made every month up until this last month because iv cut my volume right down.

            Congrats on the Silver Star! I'm aiming for that soon enough too. You did it playing cash games or tournament?

                I kinda went a bit crazy in cash, i would say that the majority was cash since the VPP from those is far stronger than in tournaments. To get Silverstar playing JUST tournaments, I would need to play my regular SNG game (27-man $1.50 at the moment) 431 times!! - per day thats 15 per day, which depending on how busy I am can sound like a lot but possibly do-able.

                I have put a freeze on me playing cash right now, its too easy to gamble playing them and im not +EV with them. So next month, realisticly, I am either going to be playing the $1.50 games (and need to run 15 per day consistently) or grow my bankroll and rise to the $3.50 games where I am only needing to do 1/2 as much.

                Either way, I feel like I stuck my afterburners on this month, unless i can bink a nice MTT and score a big bankroll, I am most likely likely looking at just Chromestar in June.

                  Congrats on SilverStar! More Fpp's and entry into the Silverstar 100 fpp tournament for a chance at a big paydayumbup: For spending Fpp's I like to wait until I reach roughly 1000 fpp's and open up 4 Sunday Storm 235 fpp satellites. Top two get 11T$ so chances are if you are any good in SNG you will cash atlleast 1/3 of the time or more if super lucky. Its better than using them on $10 for 1000 fpp from VIP store imo umbup:
