    Aha! That's the sort of calculation I was after - thanks.

    I wonder how you could calculate it for multi-tabling at, say, .10/.25, .25/.50, .50/1, etc - how many hours at what limit and how many tables would be likely to get you enough FPPs for a particular VIP level?
    There are only three ways to play pocket Jacks; they are all wrong.

    Check out that site as I'm not familiar with how VPPs are earned in cash games.

    Still, I play my SNGs at UB since I get rakeback there. Coupled with their frequent reload bonuses and selling off my points for cash I earn a 48.5% rakeback equivalency.

    I should make Supernova by the end of the year, but only because Stars offered a special promotion to earn extra VPPs during the year.

    My online profit for the year is just under $12k, but $5k came in one tournament!

    Nice job!

    I'm sure you can look at all the MTT winners online, ourselves included, and see that a huge chunk of our profits come from a few big wins/cashes. With SNGs its a slow steady grind in comparison.
