  • VPP question

    I recently just had a session of 500 hands at the 2NL and i got roughly 10 VPP's but i'd rather stick to 5NL so that's what i'm gonna do. My question is what's the difference in VPP's at the 2NL level and the 5NL level. EX. I made 10 VPP's in 500 hands at the 2NL so roughly how many VPP's would i make if i played 500 hands at the 5NL. I would also like the samething done to 10NL also

    As Vpp's are given for rake taken during a hand its difficult to say how many exactly you would get, but as a guess I would say probably double what you got at the 2nl table, it also depends on how many players are seated at your table 6 max is better for collecting Vpp's and when looking for a table to sit at, look for one were the average pot per hand is high that way you will get more Vpp's in your session but the players at the table will be more aggressive.

      VPP's are awarded for each hand depending on the amount of rake Pokerstars takes per hand
      So obviously the more rake earned the more vpp's given

        I'm sure there is also a minimum pot requirement of 0.20c [... post flop] before rake is generated, and therefore this will also affect the no. of VPPs you earn at 2NL... as only small proportion of pots tend to exceed 0.20c [... unless there are lots of fish at the tables]. I made the switch to multi-tabling FL [6 max] tables as there is more action... & therefore more rake and can generate anywhere from 15 VPPs to 40 VPPs per session [1 to 1 1/2 hours]. Hope this helps... umbup:

          The VPP multiplier on the 2NL tables is 12 x, the multiplier on the 5NL tables is 10x. This means for every $1 in rake generated, they award 12 VPP to the table on 2NL and 10 VPP to the table on 5NL, split equally among all players in the hand.

                This might help:

                http://www.pokerstars.com/vip/calculator/

                Unfortunately it does not calculate 2NL and 5NL but it should allow you to gauge roughly where you are
