      Ok, I know the rakeback for FTP is 27%. But how much do we, as players, get back of that 27%? (PS.com does get a portion of the 27% right?)

      The reason I ask is because about a week ago, I noticed that my BR had jumped up quite a bit and I thought that maybe it was just all in my head. But then I realised that it was rakeback.

      So how much do we really get back, percentage wise, after PS takes their cut?

      Right now I'm looking at a pretty hefty rakeback for next month, but I don't want to get my hopes set on that extra money too much because I might not get it all.

      Oh, thanks! For some reason I was under the assumption that PS got a portion of the rake that was generated. Weee, can't wait til next month around this time!! :D :D :D

      They do, pokerstrategy don't take a cut of the 27% I'm not sure why you would assume this....

      They have their own deal with the pokerroom, you get the full 27%

      Well you get 27% rake back so there is 73% left. If pokerstrategy gets lets say 2% of each player fulltilt still have 71% rake and PS having at least 10k players playing there also makes nice sum all together doesn't it.

      PS gets lots of money don't you worry about that ;) But the more rake you make more they get so thats why you get all suport.

      One high roll player is worthed 10000 times than players like me or you because he makes that much more rake(for now :D ).

      The MGR column in the Game notes tab of pokertracker should be the Net Rake (Click on get all hands). From this you have to subtract 6$ for every 1000 fps you spent, all the bonuses you got, etc and then take the 27% of that

      @CoreySteel
      i'm pretty sure they do, exactly what slikec said, it wouldn't make sense if pokerstrategy invests $50 in everyone and not get anything back, as for the percentage i dont worry too much about it

      @justkyle88
      your pokerstrategy points are your rakeback points but you gotta take the amount and divide by 2 (and minus all the bonus, overlay crap, etc.), since you get 2 ps points for every $1 raked, and last take 27% of that and you'll get the rakeback

      Too bad PS doesn't have rakeback deals with all their partner sites... would be nice to have the option of also getting rakeback while cycling through clearing the first deposit bonuses...

      Since you receive 2 Strategy Point for each $ rake you generate, wouldn't it make sense to just divide you strategy points for the last 4 weaks by 2, and take 27% of that for a good indication.

      So rakeback = [(SP last 4 weeks / 2) - Bonus, Shop expenses etc.] * 0.27

      Right?

      Over what period is your rakeback calculated 1st till last each month? Payout on approx 13th i read somewhere??

      How often the rakeback is paid? Every month or something like that?
