      I think that's only possible in combination with ''getting platinum at least''' status or Gold.

      This for rake purposes and to motivate players to play tracked and enjoy many many more benefits

      There is one gift free xD !

      When you reach diamond you get a free tshirt with your pokerstrategy taf link :D :D !

      Lol it is a great idea but think pokerstrategy invest a lot in the strategy coaching site maintenance rake race freerolls etc so if they do this maybe they will not make enough profit to survive in the long run xD

      Well it would be pretty awesome... if we could buy books and pokerstrat clothing with points. I'm not talking about alot just a little something extra material to go along with awesome support and good deals with our pokerrooms ;)

      And we talking alot of points here... :P

      EDIT : Also they can make it that if your gold+ or something your allowed to exchange points for a discount up to a certain maximum ;) So you would still be paying a percentage of the real price but it will be cheaper.

      But you somehow need a system where people that already gain alot from PS to get slighty discounted in this. Like if you won $$ in rake races or free rolls you dont qualify that month. Something like that. If some1 is already getting alot out of PS then no need for anything extra. :s_biggrin:

      Hey guys,

      The StrategyPoints are used on a regular basis to keep your status & thus give access to educational material such as coachings, videos and articles. They are also used for the Elephant License, the BM status, and various promotions such as our monthly Rake Races and the Top250. Sometimes they also determine eligibility for things like second starting capitals.

      As such the points you accumulate have already 'paid' for a lot of things along the way. Although the thought of being able to spend them in the shop is a nice one - it would blow the scope in terms of expenses - since the points are already being "spent" on so many other things.

      I will of course pass on the feedback and things such as shop related milestones might actually be worth a thought (e.g. we have an Elephant milestone bonus, the Diamond T-shirt milestone etc.). I won't make any promises though.

      Best regards
      SoyCD

      For gathering StrategyPoints, you get your status here at PokerStrategy.com - and through that, all services, promotions & content.

      The only two exceptions from this rule are the Black Member Status and the Elephant. There will be no further exceptions.

      This means: if there were no Black Member Status, there would not even be a point in counting the 'Lifetime' StrategyPoints.

      Or would you go to a poker room saying: "Hey, I generated XXX Rake over my lifetime. I got my rewards from the ongoing rewards/VIP system - but I still think I should also get something for my lifetime achievement on top!"? ;)

      I like the milestone reward idea..

      The rake is quite big so every1 loves looking for ways to get more out of it. I would have definately stopped playing poker if I didnt join Pokerstrat.

      So tired of rake eating like 6BB / 100 hands on micro stakes FTP. I would like to take advantage of all that pokerstrat has to offer but. For a player that lets say only makes about 500 PS points / month. am i gonna have to move up in the limits? :p

      We think that the poker rooms / networks themselves should be responsible for monetary incentives - and if they decide to increase rakeback / VIP offers, we will be glad.

      But you also have to put your rake cost into perspective: without paying rake, the poker rooms & their affiliates will have no money to bring in new players - and thus, the system would dry out.

      PokerStrategy.com will always try to be the top affiliate not just as a poker school & community, but also in terms of monetary incentives - but we will not try to outbid other affiliates by far, because that would mean entering a price war that in the end is bad for everyone.

      You just have to touch Diamond status at any time to qualify for the T-Shirt. It's a rather symbolic, but still nice, one :)

      Hi tac3znarf,

      I'm pretty sure that these items can be sent to virtually anywhere worldwide.

      The Philippines appear in the list of countries on the shipping information page within the PokerStrategy shop.
      They will of course advise you if there is any problem at the time of purchase/or reaching diamond status in the case of special diamond t-shirts.

      Best regards and good luck getting to Diamond :diamond: :)

      Yep, Phillipines should not be a problem.

      And for some issues, your location is even beneficial - Titan Poker do their security checks in Manila ;)

      So this is the reason titan is not accepting players from our country, Philippines.
