  • FPPs

    How do others use their FPPs?
    I'm just wondering as I never really seem to use them for anything other than the occasional MTT ViP Bronzestar tourney.
    It's not something I've every really looked into.
    I do not get a vast amount of these each month but would like to explore some ways of putting them to use.

    *** Moved*** Hiya jysteruk, I guess each member has different uses for the VPP's. If it's any help PokerStars have a page HERE about their VIP program of rewards and bonuses. It's a good discussion topic and I'm sure other members will post back with how they use theirs! Raiser umbup:

      I got a hoody that I'm very pleased with for 2,850 but now I just accumulate them and will decide in December what to put them for.

      ATM I have 3,100 and hope to have 10,000+ by the end of the year.

      There are definitely better value items than others, for example the $11 Sunday Storm ticket costs 700 points which is about the best value thing for low stakes although you have to be silver star to get it.

      I just notice some April Fools gifts in the lobby. I quite fanc7y that Voodoo Doll to stick pins into my opponents after a bad beat

        A handy site is

        http://fpppro.com/

        which explains how to spend them. Did you know that a Supernova Elite gets over $100,000 in rakeback every year? I'd gladly break even on the tables and make SNE if I could.

            There are lots of sattys for FPP's, and I spend all of mine on them. You could spend them at the VIP store also.

                I generally use them to play tournaments with an FPP buy in, Pokerstars offer a lot of different tournaments with point buy ins, some satellites and some where you can play for straight up cash.

                You can also use them in the store however you generally need a lot more for that than just having a few to play tourneys

                  Put some of them to use and qualified for tonights Sunday Storm via a 5+R FPP 2 x - Turbo.
                  999 Players and top 40 got a ticket.
                  Think I had 5 double rebuys + 1 addon so 60ish points for a $11 ticket which I think is quite a good investment.
                  But my MTT play generally sux so not holding out much hope for a cash.

                    Being a cash game player, I used to spend fpp's on tournament entries, or sats to Sunday Storm. Also got a Pokerstars beanie(which I lost noooooooooo!) and a couple poker books.
