From now on, all PokerStrategists with a tracked PartyPoker account will be able to earn more StrategyPoints for playing there. The increase is from 3.5 to 4.5 StrategyPoints/$1 rake and this change is permanent!

More StrategyPoints = more rakeback

This change will have a positive impact for all PokerStrategists playing at PartyPoker. This increase has two main benefits for you:

You will be able to reach a higher status at PokerStrategy.com quicker than before
You will get increased rakeback from taking part in promotions where PartyPoker is a participating poker room, like the GemstoneGemstone Promotion. Also, you now have a better chance to benefit from the StrategyPointsTop250 race. For an overview of our VIP offer at PartyPoker, check out our analysis thread.

Let's have a look at how in detail this will affect the Gemstone Promotion:

    how come stars can't have increase PS points? seems unfair since partypoker is in the top3 sites in traffic but gets 4.5 per 1$ rake
  • #2

    they are trying to compete with PS lower rake
  • #3

    Oh yes its so unfair boohoo. Of all the shit pokerstrategy does/has done for all of us there are so many out there that just complain no matter what new promotions/offers they come up with.

    So sick of the fact that the comments sections in all these newsfeeds are full of negetivity. Keep your lousy whingeing comments to yourself.

    @ #1:

    yeah, that's unfair.
    so don't play at stars!
  • #5

    very good news for me as i play 90% @ Party!
  • #6

    cool ;)
  • #7

    hell yeah!
  • #8

    at least make party available to people in Lebanon so i can play there.
  • #9

    Pretty significant increase in R/bck; nice.
  • #10

    perfecto :)
  • #11

    yeahhh buddy :D
  • #12

    @3 are you so naive in thinking PS is a second Santa Claus coming from above?

    or you just make yourself some noise in the comments?

    some of the PS members know how rake is splitted between the parties involved.

    ... and judging by the words you use to EXPRESS YOURSELF you are living in a ghetto and hardly deserves a reply
