re: Poker & FPP
Not to disparage stars, but you'll do a lot better simply opening an account on another room (I like FTP) with rakeback. The FPP at the highest level work out to, IIRC, about 16% rakeback if you sell the items you purchase for market value. That's a lot of trouble vs rakeback, and a significantly lower return to boot.
Now if you're playing stars for game selection purposes, that's different... but FPP isn't, by itself, a very good reason.
