      If you play on Full Tilt, and you play any Added Value/Guaranteed Money tournaments, the amount added per player will be reduced from your net rake when calculating rakeback.

      Play a $1000 Freeroll with 10000 people signed up, this'll count you as 1/10000th of the total money, $0.10 reduced from net rake.

      If you play a $100 Freeroll, with 100 players, 1/100th of the Added Value will be from you, $1 will be reduced from your net rake before calculating rakeback.

      Play a $10 buyin 10k guarantee with 100 players, the buy-ins make $1000, so the added value is $9000, and a hundredth of that is $90 reduced from Net Rake generated for rakeback calculations. (so $100 rake generated, -$90 = $10 * 0.27 = $2.7 rakeback, in this specific simplified example)

      Hope this helped any.

      At FTP, if memory serves, they rake those tables 1 cent per 15 cent in the pot and don't rake pots without a flop.

      So 408 hands, I can imagine a few dollars at least, not huge amounts but def more than one.

      That's just what I would guess though, as it'd only need 15 dollars worth of raked pots to make a dollar rake.

      Thanks for your answers.

      One more additional thing:
      Freerolls which we host on Full Tilt Poker ($5000 last Sunday each month) do not affect rakeback or your generated rake.

      Cheers,
