      In order to give a broad overview of how quickly you will collect PartyPoints on what limits we will try to keep an updated list here.

      According to the PartyPoker homepage you need:

      $30/$60 raked hands needed = 11
      $50/$100 raked hands needed = 7
      $100/$200 raked hands needed = 6
      $250/$500 raked hands needed = 6

      No-Limit and Pot-Limit Games
      Needed Raked Hands for 10 PartyPoints

      This has changed recently ...

      In the middle of their Gladiator Promotion, they doubled the amount of hands you need to get 10 PP.

      Here is the link:

      Link to PP page.

      Guess they realised it would cost them to much.

      I'm clearing my bonus and GTFO'ing out of PP, cause shit like this is just lame.

      Thats fucked my +100$ bonus from PokerStrategy in middle of clearing (cleared 25$ so far), and now, its almorst imposible to clear rest... played 500 hands... 2.9 points... lol now you need to play like 50k hands to clear one increment of 25$...

      Thats it... was a best site for me, now - no more.

      Is it till the end of their f***** promotion? I was lucky to clear up all PS bonuses, but I had one day left (around 20 points) to get the Golden status and now it's improssible to get it. Is PS going to change the rule 1.5 PP = 1 PS and possibly recalculate data for last days?

      On the other hand, PP changed prices in points stores. 300 PP = 5$ -> 200 PP = 5$. So, just converted all points left there.

      Hope, it's just till the end of promotion, or PS will change points conversion system. Otherwise, I'll have to leave PP :(

      It's a definite change and I doubt PS will change its points system since it's based on the amount of money PS receives from PP.

      Damn!! I wish I had read this forum thread 1 hour ago, before registering at PP
      I've trusted the recommendation given by PokerStrategy... and PP seemed to be a good site, with a lot of players and low rakes...

      This means in order to clear the $50+$100 in 90 days I have to play either:

      Breakeven SSS at NL10: 34200 hands = 380hands/day


      Breakeven SnG at $1: 2250 = 25 SnGs/day
      I assume the rake is $0.20, someone please correct me if I am wrong.

      i see that for NL 0.1/0.25 u need 100 raked hands to get 10 party points
      what means raked hands?

      Rake is a small percentage of the pot which will be paid to the poker site. Everytime the pot exceeds a certain amount of money rake is taken of the pot. When this happens it is said that "the hand is raked".

      To collect Party points from rake it is enough that you get dealt cards. You're allowed to fold your hand pre-flop.

      I can see some sort of anomaly for my yesterday results on PP.

      Played 1000 hands on NL25, VPIP = 20% (mostly FR, but some tables were short for some period of time). And I got 176.1 poker strategy points for yesterday, my absolute record for this limit, I usually get 1.5-2 times less for the same data set. Has party changed something or poker strategy changed conversion rule for PP->PS points?

      lol, the whole previous day just disappeared and I lost 176.1 points. Seems some kind of technical mistake on PS side (I've got the same points amount on Party Poker right now), so hope it would be just recalculated.

      ADDON: points were recalculated, issue is resolved. Both comments can be deleted.
