      I get 1 FTP for every dollar raked from a pot..
      For every dollar raked from a pot = 2 Strategy Points

      i have 50 FTP on my account does that mean i should be getting 100 Strategy Points?
      i see that i still hv 0 Strategy Points :(

      or is my calculation wrong?

      Hi JaneBibu

      You must use the code of PokerStrategy in order to get the Startegy Points. If you inserted other code you won't get any Strategy Points.

      Thanks

      i dont knwo why is my wrong -_-"

      I get 1 FTP for every dollar raked from a pot..
      For every dollar raked from a pot = 2 Strategy Points

      means per 1 FTP u get 2 Strategy Points..
      isnt it just the same as

      A=B
      B=C
      C=A???

      for every common 1$ rake you get 1 FTP

      for every 1$ rake you generate by yourself you get 2 SP

      1 FTP is not equal to 1$ rake generated for the ps.

      The rake for Full tilt point is common rake , i.e the rake generated by putting money in the pot even if you don't play the hand for exemple blinds.

      The rake for Strategy point is your rake that you generate by yourself.

      So 1 Full tilt point is not equal to 2 Strategy point.

      Theory calculation not accurate but give an estimate value of how much FTP will generate how much SP.

      Sp = (FTP - Happy hour point)/4

      A more easy way go to My promotion then go to Iron man Challenge you will get your daily FTP just divide it by 4 and you will get your approximate SP.

      Sometimes there is a delay for the update of the SP maybe that is the issue xD ?

      Since when did you start to play?

      This basically.

      Have patience my friend and it will all be updated shortly, no doubt.

      Wishing you every success and enjoyment with your poker.

      I have earned like 16 non happy hour FTP yesterday. And on that date it says I earned 4.5 SP ... There must be something wrong with the calculation then, right? As according to that calculation I should have like 32 SP

      Hi IcMean,

      At Full Tilt you earn 7 FTP for every $1 Rake or tournament fee.

      You will earn 2 Strategypoints for every $1 rake or fee.

      Therefore you will earn 1 StrategyPoint for every 3.5 FTP earnt (standard FTP, not happy hours).


      In your example therefore, 16 FTP/3.5 = 4.5 StrategyPoints

      Hope this clarifies it for you.

      Best regards,

      Can sombody tell me if this is proper:

      420/2=210
      210/100%=2,1
      2,1*27%=56,7


      if i collected 420 pokerstrategy points on FTP than i get 56,7$ rakeback!

      Hi mambo,

      It's always best to calculate based on the rake alone and not player points as these can be rounded at times etc.

      This said your calc looks roughly right, but please bear in mind various deductions from your net rake prior to rakeback being calculated.

      Full details are in the Rakeback FAQ sticky post.

      Rakeback is automatically calculated and paid, so you do not need to worry about the calculation as such.

      Best regards,

      here is a rough estimate that i have found that works almost all the time:

      1000 full tilt points equal 240 ps points. roughly. that is what i see every time i hit 1000 ft points.

      I get this from suport:

      Unfortunately, we are currently not receiving any feedback from FullTilt regarding rakeback. We have many such similar cases and are not happy about it ourselves, but are unable to do anything until we receive feedback. It seems it will take time till the matter is clarified, so please be patient. Thanks for your understanding.



      Does this mean that i dont get rakeback today?

      Your calculations seems to be fine. I just divide my SP with 7,4 and get my rake. I tried it on three weeks sample and it was always pretty exact. Dont also forget to count day from Tuesday last week to monday current week (I think that is also right, could be a day or two off :f_cool: ).

      I think you'll get rakeback normaly, they just didn't get an official response.

      Hi JaneBibu,

      Please be patient, it takes a while for everything to be tracked through. The points are usually updated daily, but are reliant on the platform sending the data through.
      There can sometimes be delays towards the end/start of the month and after a new account has been set up.

      You will not lose any points and they should be updated shortly.

      Best regards,


      Bart
