      I had like 6-7K points and used them mostly for entering tournaments.There's a huge variety of good satellites for which you can register.
      ..or you can simply spend them in a shop.

      Since spending FTP reduces your rakeback, gather up your points untill you have finished playing actively in the site, then go to the forums and sell the points.

      Does your rake back go back up if you do not spend your points for awhile? Also where do you see where your Rake back % is or can you see it... ?

      Your rakeback is 27% of (RAKE minus 0,005$ for every FTP you spend minus the bonus amount you clear minus buyin for freerolls)

      you are a SNG player I think your best bet would be to save up and play some SNGs to get entry into other events (either MTTs or just take the $T that you get from winning satelites) I made a fortune from playing 9max PLO8 Satilites into the FTOPS..does hurt the rake back alittle bit.. but I made like $600 when i had like $100 bankroll. LOL :D

      ..OR save up for a custom Avatar those things are sweet :tongue:

      i have evaluated a lot this issue and the best option is to buy something worthy from FT store, for example, Canon camera costs 76.000pts, that means with rake reduction you loose 380$net rake and arround 100US$ brut rake...such camera costs in EU shops arround 360€, so actually you still get something for 300€...But i am wondering how is with selling FT points on e-bay..interesting, has anyone tried it? How much you get for 1point? and how do you actually sell it?

      Buy things from the store for them (ship it to their address) and they send you cash.

      u will see this buyin is the most stupid thing u can do. 44k points deducted from your future rakeback are much more than 216$.
