      what are you going to do with you`re binside points?

      are you going for the real money packages or are you going to trie to save for something like the tv?
      what is most profitable.

      myabe someone has a list like the stars list.

      real money packages don't really make up for the time spent. biggest one is only 50 euros (67,xx $ or so last time I checked) so if in eg. you started with building up your BR from NL10, you'll get to that amount of points in 2 months or more so if you are good enough, those 50 eu are your winnings for an average day if you get to NL50+ by then....
      and another thing about those cash packs: for 50 eu you need exactly double the amount of points you need for 25 eu. if you compare it with the titan points trade, you get 45 $ for only 3 times the points you need for 10 $ (if I remember correctly). but yeah, titan is Ipoker so you'd be better off playing @ bwin and spending all your points in some raffle :P

      mwe have 250k points in one month. so i was wondering whats best to spent.

      cause in a year i probably get lots more points cause i will be yellow soon.
      and points go alot faster.

      It seems that conversion rate (points/value) is always the same, no matter what you want to buy. So I would most of it spent on real money package and rest of it in "win VIP tickets" :D

      binside shop>>

      For everything less than WII/PSP, the points value is not worth it.
      Therefore I cashed real money packages.

      @ Joao: t h i s should help I suppose

      @ darkone: dude!
      the new TomTom go 730 !!
      !!!!
      ! !! !
      I know everything else apart from the BMW (which is unreachable.....no really....100 mil points......literally unreachable) seems like useless sh*t, but this is the best thing they've had so far.

      not a lot of people know about tomtom, but the price for this model reaches 450 $ on some sites. If you calculate it's value on the site, for 700 k points you can get ~ 290 $ so definitely better than the points -> cash conversion they offer.
      unfortunately I already have a MIO C720 which has the same screen size and so far I'm satisfied with it (mainly because of it's samsung CPU :P )...
      but I already asked some ppl and am thinking of getting the tomtom and sell one of them in case anyone will be interested

      @mishuq - click here
      Anyway, 700k points is about 300 eur, which is more than enough of the price.
      And I take my words back - PSP/WII are cheaper online too.
      Tournament tickets, if you dont want to play > cash.

      those are refurbished. new one is about 350 $ on amazon. but still, it seems the price went down a bit. easiest thing though is to accept the bwin points -> cash conversion and should be enough.

      While your calculations for tournament players are correct, the ones for cash gamers are really off - the actual percentage is 50%+!
