      Is a raked hand , also a raked hand in which you are BB or SB but you fold preflop ?

      So you are not participating in post-flop but you were BB / SB thus giving money to the pot of the game.

      A raked hand at PP is every hand where you get your hole cards, and the casino collects a rake (no matter if you fold preflop or not, any position).

      You don't need to contribute any money to the pot to be counted in the hand (assuming you're not sitting out), so if you fold preflop from say UTG+2 and PP gets rake it counts as a raked hand for you.

      I was reading the news section here on pokerstrategy and saw that full tilt is now paying out rakebacks every week instead of every month. I was just wondering. I play on party poker. Does party pay out rake backs as well? If so is it every week or every month? How much do you get back? Is it the full amount of your rakes or is it a percentage? Does it appy to the hands that you've won or is it all hands that you've been at the table for? Any help would be appreciated in this manner. Thanks.

      no, this is not true, I mailed them:

      Thank you for contacting Customer Service.

      Having checked your PartyPoints details, I can confirm that the system has awarded you with the correct amount of points. Even though you have played almost 5000 hands, it's Raked hands that you need to play.

      A Raked Hand is a hand that a player participates in and has generated at least $0.01 in rake for that player. Generated rake is calculated by dividing the total rake collected in that hand by the number of players who were dealt cards.

      I have attached a link below so that you can view our rake chart in PartyPoker http://www.partypoker.com/how_to_play/rake_and_blind.html


      So not every hand counts!

      For me, every raked hand (no matter if I folded preflop) counts. :)

      At the limit I'm playing (FL 0.10/0.20), Party says I get awarded 0.75 PP for every 20 raked hands I play.

      On Tuesday I played 1,325 hands, of which 1,095 were raked (hand with flop = raked hand, at least on that limit).

      If I wanted to get how many PP I should be awarded, it would be something like this:

      ( 1095 / 20 ) * 0.75 = 41.06 PP

      And when I check Party, they say that I earned 41 PP on Tuesday. :)

      @straddler71: Party doesn't have a direct rakeback system. PartyPoints can be exchanged for cash, but the %-rakeback you get depends on many factors. I think it's around 15% for low-limit players, and a bit higher the further you move up.

      @TimothyVdp1: Yep, they have their own definition of Raked Hand, but if I applied that definition to my calculations, I would get only about 20% the PP I get.

      You are correct, but I don't think you know why!
      If EVERYONE folds preflop, then the hand is not raked. If the flop is seen, and you had been dealt hold cards (regardless of your preflop action), it is considered a raked hand.

      I just played 110 hands NL10 and was surprised to get 3.6 Party points - although I only saw about 10 - 12 flops. Seems very easy to collect points
