You still get the semiannual Bonus at the lower levels for lesser amounts as long as you qualify for Ironman in the previous month, I believe June for the July bonus and December for the January bonus.)

But yeah, total points for the month would be so much better.
Thanks for the info. I was a little confused about Iron... 25 days is a little too much imo. Even if you are a pro grinder I would think you'd want to take off more days than that a month.

Sounds pretty sweet. I just started at FT so I'm still waiting to get 5k points. I'm really looking forward to getting there. I have done a few sessions with Split and I really want to see his videos and the new Ed Miller ones.
Thanks, I've been wondering for quite some time now how it works exactly and if it's deducted from our MGR.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

which one of you creeps is deezcacklings @100NL?

I got 4bet on the BTN by him after I re-stole with J6s from the BB. Dude has a 60% steal rate from the BTN, but he knows I could be re-stealing there too.

It was like Sammy Farha vs. Eli Elizera from HSP, except I ***** folded like Sammy.

Nice thing to consider if you can play evenings is to load up tables an hour or 2 before end of the day server time and continue on for an hour or 2 after, you can log enough points for both days in one big session. Recently I play almost every day according to the fulltilt counter, but actually dont log on a couple nights a week.

I have 17K hands on him running at 12/8 with ATS at 33%, -.17bb/100 fwiw. This is NL50.

First of all you need to download and install AHK. Then you can simply go to the AHK page on Overcards.com, pick and download the script you like and just run it. Descriptions on what the various scripts do are given there.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

OMG This thread is dying!

The # of days thing for ironman is tilting me. I could probably get silver pretty easy this month (my first full month playing FT) but I'm wondering if it's even worth it? I'm going on a 5 day trip and won't be able to play so that is going to hurt. It seems like you have to collect a lot of medals to buy a bonus. Should I stress over silver vs bronze or not even worry about it? Now I'm seeing why Ironman sucks.

Basically it affect the size of your semi annual bonus.

For each month of:

Bronze $25
Silver $50
Gold $75
Iron $100

So you're talking about a bonus difference of $25 bucks for one month between Bronze and Silver.

For $25 maybe not worth stressing over?

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

If its easy to get then why not, its a few extra medals and an extra 25$ on the mid-year bonus (granted they do it again), but if its going to affect they way your playing and you arent playing your A game then probably not worth it. Not worth the extra stress or losing a buyin or more because you arent playing good just to get an extra 25$.

Also the bonus medals you get is cumulative over all levels bronze-ironman. And by that I mean you can be bronze month 1, bronze month, 2, silver month 3, and the bonus on the fourth month is for 3 months in the program even if you go back to bronze or up to gold/ironman, not to mention the medals are pretty small value even if you place the next step up.

Medals can be worth up to $0.20 each (if you purchase the $600 bonus for 3000 medals) and are worth less if you purchase a smaller bonus.

I don't have a single medal so far

Best money you will spend, aside from your DB/HUD.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

I'm jealous. I just looked in the PS thread and they hit 200k people online. Last fri night for me there were only 50-60k?

I'm clearing the 600 first deposit bonus right now and I still get rakeback - but the bonus does reduce the rakeback. I'm still trying to figure out at what point stars makes more sense. I get the impression that stars is better if you can hit platinum but straight rakeback at FT is better below that. Can anyone confirm this?

The spreadsheet is no longer there, but this thread basically concludes that tokens are the highest return on medals.

That's the general consensus. If you can make Supernova,(which being platnum monthly will do for you) Stars is better, anything below that and RB plus whatever else you get from Tilt is better.

It's funny, your complaining about the #'s of people on tilt. I remember about a year ago and the lobby would be hard pressed to hit 50k, now it's regularly over 70k. Now that does count all the play money people too, but I know there has been an increase in cash table numbers as well.

Nice, lots of good info entertainme and CaptVimes, thanks!

Looks like I will prob be sticking with FTP for the year unless I move up through the ranks fast b/c I'm definitely not going to be on pace to hit nova playing 25.

Haha, sorry to complain about volume in that case. I guess it's all relative, but I couldn't help but notice how much Stars is blowing up compared to FT.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

wow, FT regs thread should never be on the 3rd page.
Let me start of by saying i am new to the FR scene, most of my poker background consists of 6max with a little HU.
At the beginning of this month i started multi tabling 50NL, mostly 10-14 tbls.
I was wondering if any of the regs have noticed me (Beergoggles1) and would provide any insight you may have on my game. here are my graph/stats for the month.


Yes, i have been running well and the sample size is kinda small but any info you may have is welcome.
oh yeah, how do you post full sized images in the forums using image shack? o_O
