How did you get your copy of Poker Patterns? I go to the website pokerpatterns .com and just get a message that says to add my website to public_html directory. I would like to use it for charting as well.

Hrmm.. I remember it not being easy.

I found a link through the poker tracker fourms, and someone had it hosted.

Hope that helps...

I was curious if you would post your PTBB/100 for all your hands you have played so far at $200 NL? Also I usually play at Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker, and I was wondering if I have to do anything to get that bonus on Pokerstars that is like rakeback? I play 2/4 no limit and put in about 50,000 hands a month. So if I just start playing there will I get some huge bonuses like you do, or do I have to set something up to get those bonuses??? Thanks a lot for the response!

Adam, I run ~1.6PTBB/100.
Check out the link in my sidebar on the site called 'bonuses explained'.

Basically, pokerstars lets you redeem your player points for bonuses, and once you reach supernova(highest level right now), you earn points pretty quickly.

Works out to about 50% rakeback when playing 1/2NL.

Ok I just read about everything on their website. But if I dont have any VPP and FPP points hardly at all right now, how long would it take to get to supernova and start hitting those milestones? Lets say I'm playing 2/4 no limit, 6 tables, 100 hours a month. So around 50,000 hands a month. If you could just give me a rough estimate I would really appreciate it. I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth it to stop playing on UB where I could be making around 2k a month right now from rakeback playing there full time to switching over to Stars. Thanks a lot for your time I really appreciate it!

Adam said...

The reason I want to switch over is because I think the games on Stars are significantly easier than on Ultimate Bet. But without rakeback every month it's just not worth it to stop playing there, its just too much money per month. So I just want a guess of how much money I could be making from the FPP and VPP points, and how long it would take to reap the benefits. Thank you very much for your time

It would take you about 3mos to hit supernova.

After that, you'd be earning like $1600-1700 worth of fpps/month. You will also probably end up earning an additional $7k in milestone bonuses for the year.
