Poker and poker points
Also it's easier to make Silver Star (the lowest earnable level -- you start out as Bronze Star), with a level of 750 VPPs instead of 1,200 as it is currently.
I'm not sure why but it's so difficult for me to earn enough points for the elite levels on Poker Stars. You'd think it would be better for regular players to just have to earn a certain number of points each month instead of so many points per day, as in Full Tilt.
If you are at a good table or are running pretty well for one day, it makes sense to play beyond the 200 Full Tilt points you would need to maintain Iron Man. The next day it might not be so good or you might be doing other things.
Anyway, I look forward to playing Poker Stars more next year.
