      Hey dwyt84,

      You need to earn 7500 Strategy Points in one month to reach Diamond.

      You can check out more about how our points work Here

      2 VIP Player Points (VPPs) = 1 StrategyPoint

      I'm not 100% how much rake you need to get 2 VPIP's, but you can use The PokerStars VIP Calculator for a rough guideline.

      Add your Game type to the calculator and it will tell you how much VPP's you'll earn per month.

      No offense but your post does not help at all, please don't post useless information. That calculator does not say anything about rake.

      SP NEED = VPP = RAKE AMOUNT
      GOLD 500 = 1000 VPP = $181.82
      PLAT 2500 = 5000 VPP = $909.09
      DIAM 7500 = 15000 VPP = $2727.27

      Also remember that you gain 10 Strategy Bonus Points for any day you earn atleast 1 SP, so 300 SP less required if you play 30 days in a month(Not that 300 is a huge amount when you need 7500, but it all builds up.)

      Diamond requires 7500SP

      You get 1SP per 2 Pokerstars VPP's

      So we need to make 15000VPPs to get our 7500SP's

      At Pokerstars you earn 5.5VPP's per $1 of rake.

      So 15000VPP's / 5.5VPP's = $2727.27 of rake to make diamond with Pokerstars

      These calculations are correct.

      Remember you earn 6VPP/rake dollar in full ring cash, so if that is your game you pay ~ 8.5% less rake.
