      hi! i was recently advised by my friend that she already has more than 100 lifetime strategy points. but when i checked my payout for the TAF it's only $10. should it be $25 already since she's already over 100 points? also, i wanted to ask if it's possible for me to create a Pokerstars account and have my reward transferred to it so i could have my initial bankroll in pokerstars? i hope someone from the mods can answer my questions.. thanx!

      Hey JaPe,

      only regular strategypoints are counted towards the TAF limit. So no bonus points from double SP weekends or the 10 extra SP earned for each day on which one earned at least 1SP.

      From what I can see, she is just below 30SP not counting the bonus SP, so the $10 showed are correct :)

      Thanx for clearing that up.. now i understand better.. also, i wanted to ask if it's possible for me to create a Pokerstars account and have my reward transferred to it so i could have my initial bankroll in pokerstars?

      i failed the id check for what ever reason even if im 100% sure that i did whatever it is that was required w/o any fraud. w/c until now really frustrates me, so this is the only way i can start my own bankroll and apply what ive learned here. hope to hear from u again.. thanx!

      Hi JaPe15,

      We do not offer PokerStars as a payout option. However you can withdraw to Moneybookers. Moneybookers is a e-payment provider and then you can deposit the money to PokerStars.

      For more information about Moneybookers, please see here:
      Moneybookers

      Cheers,
      Hannes

      Hi JaPe15,

      If your account is in $, then there will be no deductions at all.

      However please be aware that the minimum amount for a cashout to Moneybookers is $50.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      im sorry, i didnt get that.. so does that mean that i wont be able to put my $10 TAF reward to a moneybookers acct and deposit it to a pokerstars acct that i'll be creating unless its $50? or the does it only apply for cashing out, meaning i can still create a moneybookers acct and process the transfer to pokerstars even if it's only $10? please clarify,, thanks!

      Hey JaPe,

      basically, the minimum amount you need to have on your TAF account is $50 before you can move the money - to moneybookers or a poker room.

      Was that clear enough? :)

      If you typed in your Full Tilt Poker username at the beginning then you still should get the money to this account.

      However you may still change your room, but then you will need to write us a ticket and provide us with the new poker room and your username. All the available free $50 starting capital rooms are listed here.

      Yes, PokerStars was included sometimes in the past. However the available rooms change often and at the moment you cannot get the free $50 on PokerStars.

      Hey,

      Usually you should have got the starting capital already. However there seems to be a technical problem. We will sort this out, so that you can get your capital soon.

      Sorry for any inconvenience caused,
      Hannes

      The starting capital has been transferred. Can you confirm that?

      yup, just checked and i was able to verify that it's been transferred already.. thank you very much for the fast response.. i would also like to share that the strategies ive read here were amazing.. in fact i was able to be ITM on the last 3 freerolls i joined.. the most recent was when i made the final table and finished 7th in pokerstrategy freeroll the other night. i should have finished even higher no thanks to the bad beat i encountered against the eventual winner of the game. anyway,, just wanted to share that and again thank you very much!!
