      Welcome to the forum! :welcome: :gl:

      The thing is that Pokerstrategy statuses change strictly at the UTC midnight (which was just 2 minutes after your post :f_o: ), whereas the time when poker sites send players' rake data vary, e.g. Pokerstars and Full Tilt do it shortly after the ET midnight (4 AM UTC in summer, 5 AM UTC in winter) because that's when the day formally ends on their server. Thus there's a 19-20-hour delay between StrategyPoints being reported by the room (that's when the congratulatory email is sent) and the corresponding Pokerstrategy status upgrade (if applicable) happening on our server and giving you access to extra training material etc.

      Thanks alot appreciate it. What do you actually do with the point's on poker strategy apart from it making your status? Kind regards

      The points have no value apart from determining your status.
