      First I am gonna make a question that maybe is"No"
      Can I make party points without risking my money ,I got my 50 $ capital I doubled it and now I have 3 party points
      I asked the support How to cashout and they said I need 100 party points.

      Can I make this points by playing freerolls, or playmoney ?

      If no what is a good way to make this points ?

      If you doubled it you can cashout the $50 you won. You only need to leave the $50 you got for free untill you get 100 points.

      That's not strictly true. To cash out winnings and/or the free $50, you need to collect 100 PartyPoints, which are earned via real money play.

      Not only is this a -EV bet, it wouldn't help, because the PartyPoints have to come from real money poker hands.

      Yes, it would reward you PartyPoints, originated in PartyCasino.

      It would however be completely irrelevant as you need 100 base PartyPoints from PartyPoker to clear the starting capital.

      For all practical matters, he could earn 40000 PartyPoints through Bets, Casino, Blackjack or any of a number of ways and reach Palladium Elite, it would still not let him cash out the Free $50 starting capital, as those points need to be earned playing poker.

      Grind some tables, then grind a few more, followed by lots of grinding :)

      Good luck

      Well, 100 PartyPoints is only $50 rake generated.
      SnGs will of course, even with the lowered rake, generate more rake faster.
      But it all boils down to what you prefer to play, cashgames or sngs, MTTs are a bit of an issue on PP with their rather limited selection however..

      Basically, play play and play. :)

      You have 150 days to collect the 100 PartyPoints however, so no huge rush to pressure yourself to put in more volume than you can handle multitabling!

      Regards,
      Richard

      You mean SNGs in comparison to MTTs? Cause cash games generat way more points than tournaments in my experience. Except if you finish every SNG last. :)
