      Hi,

      could anyone explain to me what does it mean $1 rake from FTP for 2 PokerStrategy points? Does it mean for every $1 I collect from playing I get 2 PS points or something else? I got almost 200 FTP points by playing and doubled my initial starting capital from PS but I have got only 18 PS points so far...

      Hi kokuzbaksuz,
      the rake is the house's cut of each and every pot. Most of the times it's 5% of the pot.
      At fulltiltpoker you get rake "credited" in every raked hand. The amount of rake devided by the amount of players that got cards in this hand is the rake you "paid".
      And for every 1$ rake you "paid" you'll get 2 SP.
