Default Pokerstars VPP

Pokerstars must be giving bonus VPP's in December. I just finished playing about an hour of $1/2 limit holdem (68 hands) and I have 100 VPP's. Guessing that they are doubling them this month.

Don't think they are doubling them for a month and usually they don't double vpp's without informing first.

are you absolutely sure you didn't play anything else in addition to those 68 hands?

Just played a few hands of 1/2 limit to check.
4 hands raked $0.50...got 4 VPP's.

Don't think they are doubling them. Think OP miscounted or something.

I just finished a 5 hour session and when I checked my VPP it was about what I expected

no way stars doubles VPPs this month, that would be pretty retarded. Everyone is going to play a sick amount of hands this month anyway already

Yeah, probably.
I'm going to put in a higher than average month to get to 750k and then be done with the year.

yup, all VPPs reset jan 1st, hence why this will be a sick volume month, everyone trying to make supernova, or whatever their next milestone bonus is

I think this is more likely a sample size issue than anything. I just played a 1148 hand session and got 525 VPP at $1/2 limit, so that's like .457 VPP/hand, which is a lot more than the .338 I usually get. I did run at like 5BB/100 and 76% W$SD, so there were some big pots (the games were goooood), but it's usually pretty consitant. I think Friday night just yields better booty.

I played 5 hours last night and got 8000. Had it been double, I definitely would've noticed.
