Quote:
1. Earn FPP credits for cash game play
First Frequent Player Point (FPP) is awarded for playing a hand in which the rake reaches:
  • $0.40 for fixed limit poker games with stakes $1/$2 and lower
  • $0.40 for NL/PL poker games with blinds $1/$2 and lower
  • $0.40 for "1-on-1" poker games (this applies only to "1-on-1" tables, not to regular tables which have only two players seated)
  • $1.00 for all other games
You only get an FPP when the rake for a single hand hits 0.4. It is not cumulative.

I don't know how I missed that at their site. Thanks for posting it.

That explains it. A lot of the raked hands I am in generate less then 0.40 since I play microstakes. OK, the only thing I am still wondering is what does play a hand mean? Just sitting at the table or do you actually have to bet/call?

You have to be dealt cards but you do not have to put any money in the pot yourself to be eligible for an FPP on the hand.

Btw guys Pokerstars have lowered all the non-Supernova levels starting today:

Here's a breakdown from 2+2:

VIP program changes:

SilverStar VIP level will be lowered to 1,200 VPPs a month.
GoldStar VIP level will be lowered to 3,000 VPPs a month.
PlatinumStar VIP level will be lowered to 7,500 VPPs a month.

Supernova and Supernova Elite players will be able to retain their status
the following year until end of September provided they meet the current
play requirements. This will start now for the 2008 SN and SNEs.

Milestone bonuses will become cash credits. This means once a player hits
200,000 VPPs for 2009 he will be able to obtain a $2,000 cash credit for
50,000 FPPs, without a need to earn further 10,000 VPPs. That is not fully
automated yet, but we plan to enable players to buy these bonuses directly
from the VIP Store, so there won't be a need to wait for processing of the
bonuses as we have it now.

The $50,000 VIP weekly event will become a $75,000 event with 12 minute
blinds.

The $20,000 VIP weekly event will become a $30,000 weekly event.

Concierge will change slightly. Changes include a player may only use the
service once a month with a max of three receipts. We will have clear
rules for what may be submitted on the website by end of February.
