      What is this on Ironman? Isn't the private table like 1 million points? You can get one for 600 medals?

      What is Full Tilt Iron Man promotion and its value?

      Once you attain the Iron Man status, you get a choice of either playing in that month's Iron Man freeroll with $10,000 to $30,000 added money, or taking 25-100 Iron Man medals instead that you can spend in a special Iron Man store to buy bonuses, tournament tokens, more Full Tilt Points, promotional stuff like shirts, and even your own table with a seat always reserved to you.

      The size of Iron Man freeroll or amount of Iron Man medals earned depends on what status you reach within that month: Bronze, Silver, Gold, or... Iron!
      Iron Man freerolls have better value than medals

      One Iron Man medal is worth 11¢ to 18¢ to a player who has a Full Tilt rakeback deal, depending on how the medals are spent. The best value from Iron Man promotion is however gained by playing the monthly Iron Man freerolls instead of taking medals.


      How Iron Man promotion affects rakeback

      The question on every +EV concious rakeback poker player's mind is how to get the most value out of the Iron Man promotion. And more specifically, how Ironman affects rakeback?

      The benefits of Iron Man are handled just like any other promotion, meaning that bonuses and freeroll added money are deducted against your Gross Rake in Full Tilt rakeback calculations. But we can calculate the best combined Full Tilt Iron Man rakeback value.


      Iron Man bonus and rakeback

      Full Tilt Iron Man BonusIf you use Iron Man medals to buy a bonus, this works the same way as regular deposit bonus and counts as a deduction to your Gross Rake before rakeback is calculated. Also the Iron Man mid year bonus works like any other bonus.

      Example:

      * Your Gross Rake is $300
      * You clear a $100 bonus bought with Iron Man medals
      * Your rakeback is ($300 - $100) * 27% = $54

      Its costs 600 medals to buy the $100 Iron Man bonus. So based on the above example, after the Iron Man bonus rakeback deduction you ended up with $27 less rakeback but cleared the $100 bonus. Your net profit from spending 600 medals in that bonus was therefore $100 - $27 = $73, which amounts to $0.121667 value per Iron Man medal.

      There are three different Iron Man bonuses to buy, and you get more bonus by spending more medals. Following this same reasoning, the value of medals when spending them to buy Iron Man bonuses and when you have a Full Tilt rakeback deal are presented in the following table.
      Added value of medals spent in Iron Man bonuses

      Iron Man Bonus Cost in medals Added value of one medal
      $100 600 $0.121667
      $300 1600 $0.136875
      $600 3000 $0.146

      Another problem... what stakes would you get your table on? If it's your current stakes, what will happen when you move up? :P Do you just leave it behind?

      Yeah, like "AceKingNL", the only guy who has a private table on nl50 sh so far. I avoid him like the plague :p

      Edit: What do you do when you move up limits? Is it possible to update the stakes for your table or are you screwed?
