      Hey, I was wondering what is the best use of PKR points. For instance, on Pokerstars the most profitable way is to grind Sunday Storm satellites, is there anything similar on PKR?

      I have 50,000 atm, and I don't feel like grinding the premium freerolls and qualifications for Masters seem like a long shot.

      I havent played there in a long time but I used to do the Maters Sattelites they were and probably still are super soft. Dont buy in for the 1st stage thats just a complete donk fest think the ones before the $50 ticket are best.

      Then all you need is 2 places in a row and to take down the big one. Good luck

      there used to be step tournaments, where you can eventually win a lot of money. 9man stt's last step is $200 buy-in top 5 get paid. Not sure if they still have them though. I used to buy-in at the $20ish lvl

      the problem I found with the steps in the past is the higher levels were almost never running. I am not sure if they are running either

      The basic value of 1000 PKR points is $0.58. You can buy tournament entries for multi tables or S&G at the store about that price. There are two exceptions: Masters stage 4 (400000 PP / $270 value) and PKR 500 (775000 PP / $530 value). In both cases rate is $0.68. May be good if you have so many points.

      About tournaments with buy-in in PP, most have normal fees if you use the rate $0.58. But Statellite to masters have weird fees. Satellite to stage 2 is high fee (over 30%), and Satellite to stage 3 is a great value, $99 prizes value, 10 players paying 15000 PP each ($0.66 rate). If you like MTT, this may be best option. I do not know if there is enough traffic to fill it, though.

      The low variance way is a buying a tournament ticket at store, and playing it on a S&G; even Heads up if you are good at it. Your call.

      Had not noticed, satellite to masters is also bought in PKR points, 40k PP, 10 players, 1st place earn a $270 value seat to Masters. $0.675 value for 1k PP, very good value if you like the Masters and have enough points. Again, not sure if there is enough traffic to fill it.

      I am a newbie, choose PKR as my room. But happened to check for points value when joining. I plan to splurge my points into $3.50 S&G...
