It will be approximately 3.33 VPPs (or $0.60.60 in fee/rake) per day to successfully complete challenge in 30 days. If I were you I would consider grinding $0.25 45-man SnGs with $5 starting bankroll. Playing 30+ games daily will earn you enough points and I believe that is doable. Once the bankroll grows over $10 multi-tabling $0.02/$0.04 fixed limit games could be another option.

I would advise you to play your favorite games, or the games that you believe you are most profitable in. You'll need to win more than you lose to gain 100 VPP with your >5$. The only thing is you'll probably have to play more games than you used to to complete the task.

Do not focus on the bonus because you will burnout and do some stupid s**t just to get clearing the bonus and you can lose all your money, just play your hands , isnt the bonus given per increment so if you play normally you will get enough time to clear all your bonus, anyway have fun at the tables mate, hope you can grind the bonus out and build up your roll in the process, cheers peace out mate have fun again and good luck!

Good luck in your challenge icequeen my bonus is 20$ for 240 VPP ( i don't know where that extra 40 come from ) i don't think i will be chasing that but if i did i will hit cash games , it is known fact that cash games can generate alot of rake but it is dangerous because you can lose most of your bankroll unlike MTT/SNG where you lose only your buy-in
This promotion is good for people who would play a lot of volume no matter if there was a promotion or not What they want to do is make you play more than you did last year in your best month. They want to make casual players addicted to poker
It's a good promotion though. Regs deserve this kind of promotions for all the $ they give to stars.

Most reasonable thing with that BR would prolly be $0.25 45 man SNGs, but you'd have to play almost 1000 in 30 days. I'd recommend depositing additional funds and play $0.50 STTs (12 per day should be doable).

In my opinion you should not focus on the bonus that much to get started. You should most definitely play what you like most or you are best in. If not you might loose more money than you might earn with your Bonus. Good luck to you.

zoom is deffo an option- maybe not the best way, but one of the quickest for sure. also if you play split pot games then it's about time to grind them (especially omaha hi/lo- since you can play it on zoom tables for a very quick way to glory). probably anything FL would be a safe bet- whatever you are strongest at.

actually split pot games is a good idea, I love plo8
and 50c stt's
will play some tonight
------------ quick update
lost the original BR and wont bother depositing.
easier money to be had elsewhere and im in my 'bored with poker' mode atm, cant be arsed with a grind for such a small reward, even though its good rakeback I know I can make a better profit on my main site
cheers for all your help

u need to be a skillful poker player to obtain a bonus.if yur just aftering for the bonus u might be going to a worst situation. points are needed to fulfill .and loss lot before u can reach the profit .playin cash games is more faster to get points or vpps.good luck on the play...
