      PokerStars 2 Base FPP (VPP) = 1 StrategyPoint

      Usually updated daily I believe, but sometimes a day or two behind.

      lol this may sound stupid but how does it work on other sites. Lets say mansion.. 1$ rake = 4 SP.

      Does this $1 rake have to come from your winnings/you putting money into the pot or is it just from the table you are sitting at? So if i was playing NL10 and wasnt involved in the pot and th rake was 25c would i earn 1 SP?

      Lol i hope you understand what i said, if its some other way can you please explain, in a little detail :D

      Thanks in advance.

      hi,

      I was confused before but now I understand it:

      Mansionpoker takes a "rake" from the pot after each hand... if you won a hand, the amount of money Mansionpoker rakes away from your win... is added up..

      when that amount reaches 1$ u gain 4 strategy points.

      so you basically lose 1 dollar on mansion (that you would lose anyway, any everybody does if they win) to gain 4 strategy points
