      Hi all,

      Im relatively new to this site (which is great by the way!) i was lured in by the starting capital and then discovered that it contained so much more. Anyway my question.... Im new to Pokerstars and wondering what the best way to spend the FPP's are. im not planning on spending them anytime soon i just wanna know how they should be spent i've read little bits about how they can be profitable. so if someone could explain that would be brill

      Thanks

      I personally use them to enter satellites, such as the 70 FPP Sunday Quarter Million Satellite which gives you a 11$ Tournament Dollar Ticket you can cashout by Unregistering if you win. You can also spend it on the 1FPP R/A Sattelites to the Same Tournament or enter other sattelites if you want. Play the 3FPP steps tournament. I wouldn't spend my FPP on things to buy since they are just overpriced i rather try my luck and winning a satteling and cashing it out depending on my BROLL

      Look under Tourney/Satellite/FPP

      Be sure to turn off the filters.

      has anyone an opinion on the 50$ VIP Reward Bonus?

      You spend 5000FPP and get 50$, when you earn 350VPP within the next three months.
      i was just clicking through the vip store and that sounds like a good deal to me

      No, the lower bonuses are really bad value. Play satellites and unregister for the T$.

      yes, indeed they are. i tried my luck twice this evening, although it didn't work out tonight it's a quite good investment for the fpp's if you aren't a gold-vip or looking to get an autographed slansky book :D

      If you don't wanna play hyper turbos play the 70FPP STT ones to the Sunday 1/4 Million. They're normal speed (winner takes all though). There may be some other higher normal speed ones, I don't really know as I've never looked.

      Personally I play the 6-max 84 and 280 point STTs. I could probably get a higher FPP-to-$ conversion rate playing the normal speed 70FPPs, but I figure it takes up way more time, and I could win more in that time just playing my regular games.

      I like the turbo takedown better and the sunday million sats. The problem that I have with the small sats is that it takes a lot of time spending you're fpp on these. In that time you could have just played you're normal sessions. So in my opinion is that if you're normal sessions get you more $/h then I would just stock up the fpp for better rewards.

      i just tried my luck with 2 of the 70fpp satellites.
      with pure skill and no luck at all (as it always goes on turbo sngs) i managed to win one of it.
      So for the first time in my live i have T$ on my account.... how do i get rid of them? :D

      I don't want to play any tournaments at the moment, so i want to exchange them to Real $.
      is there a way of transforming them into real money without any loss? i mean i found this

      but why settle for 10,67$ if i can get 11$? :D

      is there something like a marketplace for T$ around, or does someone want to buy my 11T$?
