      I am a bit desperate, qualified for the full bonus (150$) but now I am about 130$ down and have only 650/3000VPP cleared.
      Is there anyone with similar problem, i have good BR, for about 850$ ready in cashier (down from about 980$).
      Is there an easy way how to do it? I am able to play almost every type of poker - every1 will tell me: "Play the type you like the most" but there is not really one, because I feel I got scked out everywhere :-) I can say there is about 10$ - 15$ is lost due to tilt, but the rest is variance.
      I'll be happy if some1 will help me and try to solve my issue :-)

      PS: Sorry for my english ;)

      i would say just play nl10 (bss fr) on as many tables as u can for as long as you can and i dont think it should be too hard to clear

      Dobry den !

      I don't think you should play a lot of Nl10 tables because they don't generate much rake on pokerstars.

      If you really can play any style of poker, give a try at Pot limit omaha and you'll clear your bonus really fast.

      You can try contacting the support at pokerstars to divide the reload bonus. I assume you deposited at once and only got 60 days or something like that (i dont remember correctly) to clear it. If you have deposited in increments like 3 times 200$ you would have gotten 60 days for each of the increments to clear.
      If that doesn't work i suggest playing sng because you generate a lot more rake that way then cash games especially if you can multitable. If you are not familiar with sng's play the don's(double or nothing sng's). They are like playing SSS in a sng format and are very easy to multitable because you always have more then 5 people at the table. You will probably get some stellar rewards along the way so it's worth it imo.

      Ohh thank you for your advices, I'll try to react somehow:

      SnGs: Pretty the best option for me, based on ICM practice (at the turbos imo)
      DoNs: It's a lot about paying attention and it's hard for me when I have 10+ tables
      PLO: Have some experience with, but it's very tough to play concetrated - and play only with nuts, prob 2nd nuts ... (I'll need a tracker here...)
      HigherLimits SSS: I got little problem - I don't how to say -> Higher limits scares me a bit and this same for higher SnGs too (yes, 3$ seems to be too high for me sometimes as I was always used to play only the 1$ - so the loss/profit was not so high :-) )

      Still some advices are appreciated :-)

      Thanks for your advice, I tried it and really works. 12-16tables NL10 multitabling and I am close to my aim - 380VPPs left to clear until 9/04/2010. I hope I'll be able to do it ;) I'll post here soon ;)

      I have a friend who got an extension to his bonus because he wasn't going to finish it in time. Although this may not always be the case you should email the PokerStars support and see if it's possible.
