      I want to clear some academy points but I don't play Texas holdem.
      Only PLO and HU matches.

      any challanges I can do ?

      Thx.

      there really isnt any as the ftp academy software cant track non holdem games yet
      maybe try microstakes holdem as if you multitable you can finish the chris ferguson preflop play challenge pretty easily

      they keep adding challenges so i wouldnt worry much about it

      try the easy ones

      or even send an email to support with your suggestion! dont ask what ftp can do for you. ask what you can do for ftp. :tongue:

      Is it worth playing games I usually don't play just for the challenges ?

      you will need at least 5000 points to get the first really decent thing, which is the token. which requires completing around 15-20 challenges depending on the type of challenge you take on.

      that is some serious grind.

      unless you just go on micro stakes. but making people fold there is not really possible. i really like the challenges personally but i did not have to switch games.

      on the other hand you will start getting pretty comfortable with nl holdem, so i think there quite a few positives in doing the challenges as a side game.

      just use really conservative brm.

      May I ask how many Tokens did you purchase ? ;-)
      I already have 1500 points from the time I used to SSS.
      But now I mainly play PLO(8) HU games and cash for the Take 2 promotion.
