Where to play to get PS points? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Does anyone know of any sites that have decent micro fixed limit hold'em traffic where I can earn PS points?

I currently play at 888 regularly but I can't earn PS points there anymore. I have tracked 770 and Titan accounts but I find it difficult to find good games there with any regularity. I am also tracked at PKR but there are no fixed limit games there.

Thanks but PokerStars is a no-go for me anyway because I created an account there about 5 years ago before I knew anything about affiliate bonuses.

@HollyMichelle: Thanks I'll check it out smile

Unless you're playing nanostakes, play on Stars, and what you earn by not paying a shitload of rake like on any other site, you can use that 'saved' rake to buy a subscription for PS.

Let's say that you play .25/.5 and pay 3BB/100 rake on Stars, while 4BB/100 on Party. (The numbers are not accurate at all, look them up in your HEM or online or ask around, haven't played those stakes in ages - however the rake difference is probably close to accurate.) If you play say 15k hands/month, this way you "win" 1BB/100 just by not raking it, which is 150BB/month(!!!) = $75. Just go ahead and buy a subscription for gold status, and you'll get all the material without paying way way way more in rake than what you could for the status.

Eh, can't be bothered fish biggrin

It's definitely a good point. Net rake paid is something that everyone should be looking into when they choose a poker room.
