      You can only have one Pokerstars account. You decide to create another one, they will just shut you down. Basically you are screwed.
      Well you can always write to Pokerstars support and ask if they can track you, but they don't gain anything from it, so they will probably won't bother, only maybe if you have never played with real money there or if you have a play money account then they might reconsider, but it's very unlikely.

      So when you sign up for another room, make sure you follow instructions. With silver status here you can access a lot of content, so you could just sign up with another room, play there for a bit daily, and after 10 days you will have a silver status, because for every strategy point you earn daily you will also get 10 bonus points, so it adds up quickly for a silver status.

      hello houlajk

      sorry, but this isn't possible. Pokerstrategy is an affiliate, which means that they must advertise the particular poker website for you to be eligible to gain strategy points. because you already had an account this obviously means pokerstrategy didn't advertise pokerstars to you and therefore you can't do it.

      i also advise you not to create a new account. pokerstars will find out and ban you from the site and potentially lock up all money you have in your account.

      you can always sign up to one of the other poker websites listed here and gain strategy points this way.

      i hope that helps!

      Lewis.

      [edit] thanks krishjanis :D beat me to it...

      hmmm Alan883, that sounds interesting. I once also asked to get tracked with ps.com on stars and they refused me. I think once I gather decent br I might also propose to deposit and get tracked. :D Hope it will work. Until then, grind grind grind. :D

      I would also commit to a deposit of 3 to 5 k if they could cancel my current account and allow me to create a new one which is tracked by PS.
      I will write them an email, thanks for this thread.

      I hope you will succeed with that. Let us know. Good luck. I needed 3 days from request to permission to play.

      Oh i am sorry to hear that.

      I think that mine case was a bit different, because i have never played for real money before i asked them to create new account. :(

      no matter, I suppose if they did it for me they would have many more users coming to them for this, makes sense.
      :-)

      I will continue to learn here and play on sites that are tracked by PS.
