      Rakeback:

      10-Jul: 10.81$
      11-Jul: 7.38$
      17-Jul: 12.93$
      26-Jul: 15.09$
      31-Jul: 11.74$
      08-Aug: 7.17$
      16-Aug: 5.33$
      22-Aug: 3.90$
      29-Aug: 1.35$
      05-Sep: 0.81$
      12-Sep: 5.94$
      19-Sep: 3.86$
      25-Sep: 10.94$
      04-Oct: 8.11$
      10-Oct: 10.13$

      All together: 115,48$

      Now I've made 1.153 strategy points
      meaning 576$ paid in rake = I should get 155.52$ in rakeback

      meaning full tilt have scamed me for 40$ :)
      I was expecting a bigger number probably 70% of that is because of the startin capital and the other 30% probably some ftp's or freerolls r something...

      I used this here to write it down so lol I hope you don't mind me posting it :)


      It seems like I'm missing alot of rakeback this week tho I was expecting 22$

      last seven days I've made 170 points meanins I should receive around 20$ rakeback... 10$ less then I received... But I've asked this question here before and there are no real answers so I'll just stop thinking about it :)

      Can it also be that full tilt takes off your rakeback if you do player transfers? since I'm little bit into staking and stuff like that am I loosing rakeback transfering to other players?

      Edit: lol since I was just using the forum as a notepad when I started this thread I must have picked a random place to put it :) Staff please move this to the full tilt section :)

      You'll get a little bit less...

      I think for every ftp you spend they take 0.06 of your net rake...
      And well for 100 ftp spent they then would take 6$ of your net rake

      Meaning 1.62$ of your rakeback leaving you 0.38$ for rakeback :)

      Lol my calculations are probably wrong... it's probably less... I guess some moderator can answer your question better :D

      Transferring money between members is forbidden on these boards so I can't help you with that :)

      yeah I kinda feel like it's unfair... They discount from your rakeback for so much stuff... If the guaranteed prize poll tournament your playing in overlays it's taken off your rakeback... If you use the ftp's it's taken off your rakeback... If you withdraw or deposit there is some amount taken of your rakeback... If you enter freerolls there's some amount taken of your rakeback... and so on...

      this kinda makes the ftp's worthless to players that have rakeback...

      It's kinda worthless anyhow since all the ftp tourneys only have top 3 players of 3k entrants cashing or something...

      Pokerstars FPP tournaments are so so so much better
