      Either I missed it two hours ago or it just appeared on the site. This one is a race for ring game players only. It doesn't say anywhere that these races are mutually exclusive, but I'll ask that as well.

      I've taken a look at the VIP system on their site, but don't have any experience. Since it operates on a three month average basis (well, not equally distributed) you won't drop from Diamond to Iron in one month, so even if you stop playing you still get access to freerolls and stuff for a while.

      http://www.betfred.com/VIPClub

      From what I've read, you earn extra VIP club points a hand per VIP status upgrade, so Diamonds can get up to 167% more on the right stakes. This means that the higher your level the faster you can release your bonus. They also give you a monthly club points bonus up to 100% matching the number of points earned last month, that obviously doesn't count for bonus clearing. Club points themselves can be exchanged to cash at a rate of roughly 1000 points per $10 (minimum points for cashout=5000).

      There's no reason you shouldn't be able to participate in both. In fact, you'll participate in 3 races because all your SP count for TOP250 promotion too.

      Good luck at the tables!
