      lol this may sound stupid but how does it work. 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? (if i was playing at mansion)
      Also say i need 400 SP. (at mansion again) Would i need to then have produced $100 rake at the tables i have sat at to make 400 SP or is it something else with different caculations.

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

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi kingdippy2008,

      please have a look at this thread someone asked a pretty similar question there:

      What is "rake"?

      maybe you should also take a look at our rewards system: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/home/rewards/

      Regarding the 25c rake pot where you weren't involved: well the rake will be divided by the players that got dealt cards in that hand and that amount will be "your paid" rake.

      Best regards,

      ive read that section but it just says $1 rake = xSP but it doesnt say wether this is from the table or your rake/net rake or whatever.

      Thanks anyway

      Right so say i need to get 100 SP and it was $1=1SP would i have to
      a)have $100 rake taken from myself and my winning
      b)have $100 rake taken from the tables i have been sitting at, regardless of wether i was in any pots.
      c)have $1000 rake taken at every table i have sat at (assuming they are 10 max and no one ever leaves :D )

      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
