No not at all, 90 % of it is a waste of time for anyone that knows how to play poker with any skill. Because it is play money people play very recklessly which does not help any one learn. Some may like it, I do not.
It is utterly meaningless in the greater scheme of things... however, I am thrilled that at least in some small and insignificant way, I graduated all the way to the top rung of the ladder. There are only a few players I'm aware of that have 100 billion or more play chips on Stars.
Just to give you some idea of the value of 50 billion play chips... if I had to purchase them all at the going rate on Stars (a 100% extra sale today, they're always running sales pitches), it is 2.65 billion chips for 500 US dollars... so my 50 billion chip bankroll would cost me almost 10,000 US dollars.
If only I could sell them back. :-) But... I live in the Land of the FREE, where such things as Poker Stars are banned. I am thankful to still be allowed to use the play chip side of Stars, but I think this shows how much income my US Government has cost me over the past decade. I used to play in the same tournaments as Niklas Astedt (Lena900 on Stars). Today, he went on to become one of the biggest winners in poker, while I grinded the play chips up to nosebleed status. Thanks, Federal Government. You lost too, you know... think about all that tax revenue I would have given you. Idiots.
No, has zero point. People call way more often with donkey cards, pot odds dont help, bluffing also give way more often a call. playing bingo poker is zero fun. It must be a tactical game not a slots game
No, I don't play poker on play money. Because I don't see a sense to play on play money because you will behave yourself more risky not so like if you play on real money. I can't compare these types of money.
