# rakeback calculation

Does anyone know how is rakeback calculated? At Fulltilt I have 27% shared rakeback. So I receive back 27% from the rake. Do I have to win the pot to receive 27% or it doesn’t matter if I win the pot? If the game has a 5% rake what is the effective rake I pay after I receive rakeback? I always thought that I pay 5%-2,7%=2,3%. But this is just if I receive rakeback only for the pots I win. If winning the pot is not a condition to receive rakeback what is the effective rake I pay?

I think is like this:

100FTP is ~ 25 Strategy points(is a bit less sth. like 24,2) which means 12\$ rake produced(1\$ rake at FTP=2SP).

12\$*0,27=3,24

So for every 100FTP you'll make you will get aprox. 3,24 rake back!

That was for ring games.

I mean at SNGs you get 7FTP for every 1\$ fee. Which makes 14,28\$ rake at 100FTP.

I know how to calculate how many \$ I will receive. I want to know what is the effective rake I pay in ring games with 5% rake. Given the fact that I have rakeback, instead of 5% I will effectively pay less. But how much less? 2,3%?
