  • 150VPP Player disadvantaged

    There must be more changes here al PSSL, it just isnt right that 20VPPs players hit top of the Premier Leaderboard and take 500$ and push down a player with 150VPPs down to 3350$, and so on where other prizes are affected in the same way, who made an effort in going to ring games or where ever and scored his/her 150VPPs thus losing huge amounts of cash. I think Premier as its name suggests should be only for the players who make 150VPPs, making it a league of its own which was the point all along. This must be seriously looked at as real cash is involved and there should be no hiccups about this.As it stands now players are disadvantaged by this system and this league must be fair to the players making an effort, and i think there would be more money made by the PokerStars if they made that change thus pushing player with 20VPPs to in their own right, once making 150VPPs, deserve a spot to battle for the top prizes here. Please if you are a 150VPP player support this suggestion and lets make this PSSL a good one and fair to all.

    As the Premier League is currently of little interest to me, I'll leave it to others to respnd to your comments. But I sure think I'm gonna need a big bag of popcorn when returning to read this thread tomorrow

        I make much more than 150 vpp`s a month and I totally disagree with you If you lose money making vpp`s than you don`t deserve to be in the Premier league. You haven`t learned about bankroll management. Step 1 Learn to play poker Step 2 Learn about bankroll management Step 3 ONLY then should you be looking at vpp`s Don`t forget, it`s a business for them, if they can save money when 20 vpp`s are at the top, then hey, it`s working for them. Don`t forget, it`s FREE for you (if you don`t lose money acquiring vpp`s....lol) umbup:umbup:

              Somebody ahead of you in the league deserves their advertised prize. Unfortunately, if they have not made the higher prize level they are effectively losing their own potential prize money. They are not taking it off others. Most will very quickly learn to make the optimum VPP level to maximise their potential earnings. The new set up is just taking a while for people to work out the potential benefits of collecting the extra VPPs as they move up to Premier level.

              You get a prize for your ranking and VPP level. The rank is primary - the VPP is secondary and preset based on the previous month. Wherever you finish, ranked 4th or 400th, your prize will not be affected by the VPP levels of players above or below you.

              The Leagues are free to enter and have great prizes. Be grateful for what you can earn from the League for free, not to mention the free advice/training/community/videos.

              and yes - VPPs are a FREE BONUS to winning players

              Good Luck All

                  Those players with only 20 VPP's are the one's at a disadvantage. I expect the majority players who have more than 20 VPP's but less than 150 probably don't have the bankroll to play high enough to earn 150 VPP's. If your roll limits you to 2NL or 5 NL it's gonna be hard to get 150 VPP's, they can only compete for 1/10th of the 150 VPP prize, and may not be able to get 150 VPP's without playing 100,000 hands a month.

                      What are you on about? 20VPPs in open league gives you 1500$ for first and in premier only 500$. They are disadvantaging them selves.

                        It doesn't make any difference if the person taking your spot has 20+VPP or 150+VPP. The result is the same. More VPPs doesn't mean more skill anyways... which the OP said himself lol.

                          Now Sandtrap im sure you would be angry dropping 4 places on the final day from 1st to 5th, thats if you ever make it to that rank which i doubt very much, because three 20VPP players pulled a miracle and overtook you! There goes 15 points of your score and many more to come.... I shall keep you updated every day on your progress. 2pm game 8/9/2011 599/374th

                              You hit the nail on the head. I am grinding the micro tournaments(because I haven't yet learned to play ring games with any profitability).This being the case there just isn't enough time in my life to earn 150 vpps.However 20 vpps is easy and if I can finish at the top of the PL the boost to my bankroll would then make it possible to get the required 150 vpp for the bigger prize next month.
                              I see no problem with this as my only investment is time.
