      2 VIP Player Points (VPPs) = 1 StrategyPoint

      each $1 rake we get 5.5 VPPs bronze level,
      Each 5.5 VPPs we get 2.75 Strategy Points.

      And all the others platform is getting more than 3SP and some even 5SP

      :( It's too for micro players like me

      Yes indeed. And stars is the thoughest site out there, imo.

      bad SP, bad bonus, though opponent. So why you play there?

      Great traffic for any and all gametypes in my opinion.

      bad bonus for micro
      bad sp for micro i agree

      However, they do have poker league which offer u $1500 1st prize
      till 100 places. $5 for no 100 i guess. This is all for FREE, no deposit requirement. Month of sept, a player from my country won it which was really suprising. It running 24/7.

      Battle of Planet SNG, play 20 SNG tables in a week accumulate pts, n u may end up extra $150.

      Anyway, i like pokerstars becoz of the software simple n good, n good traffic, dont have to wait long b4 my table full.

      My game type doesn't have traffic or is not even offered anywhere else ;) MT-Sngs, after FTP shut down, there no more options left, except changing your game type

      Stars has the lowest rake, and their software is awesome. And even on NL2 if you grind enough you can get gold here.

      i bet there are no sites in the industry where you would get equivalent status to GoldStar for paying $60-70 take/month

      If you're serious sng player 100 could be played in a day, and 7$ is really low buy in... For your volume and limit gold is too much IMO cause everyone could reach it then.

      I don't think you have to play much more though.
      If you played every day.
      Took an average of 30 days/month
      Earned at least one SP at the site/day
      You would get 300 bonus points
      If you played 9man SNG turbo's giving 3.03 VPPs/game.
      you would need another 200 points = 200*2/3.03
      So by my reckoning it could be done with a little commitment and 133 games
      =$73.15 in rake
