      Hey Mansion players,

      Just received an email from Mansion updating me on some changes to their points system. Nothing major but definitely informative.

      "The way that points are allocated will change on all i-poker card rooms from 2nd January 2010.

      Currently all players who are dealt cards in any real money cash game hand receive the same number of points

      The number of points received is based on the total rake taken on the hand and for MANSIONPOKER.com is in accordance with the table below.

      rake range Points
      $ 0.01 $ 0.09 0.2
      $ 0.10 $ 0.24 0.6
      $ 0.25 $ 0.50 1.25
      $ 0.51 $ 0.75 2
      $ 0.76 $ 1.00 3
      $ 1.01 $ 1.25 3.75
      $ 1.26 $ 1.50 4.5
      $ 1.51 $ 1.75 5.5
      $ 1.76 $ 2.00 6.25
      $ 2.01 $ 2.25 7
      $ 2.26 $ 2.50 8
      $ 2.51 $ 2.75 9
      $ 2.76 $ 3.00 10
      $ 3.01 $ 5.00 13

      From January 2nd only those players who actually contribute towards the pot, will receive points.

      In order to compensate for this MANSIONPOKER.com will increase the number of points issued as shown in the table below.


      rake range Points
      $ 0.01 $ 0.09 0.3
      $ 0.10 $ 0.24 1
      $ 0.25 $ 0.50 2
      $ 0.51 $ 0.75 3
      $ 0.76 $ 1.00 4.5
      $ 1.01 $ 1.25 6
      $ 1.26 $ 1.50 7
      $ 1.51 $ 1.75 8.5
      $ 1.76 $ 2.00 10
      $ 2.01 $ 2.25 11
      $ 2.26 $ 2.50 12.5
      $ 2.51 $ 2.75 14
      $ 2.76 $ 3.00 16
      $ 3.01 $ 5.00 21

      See you at the tables,
      The MANSIONPOKER.com Team"

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      bad news for sss player

      From January 2nd only those players who actually contribute towards the pot, will receive points.

      The dealt method is the better rakeback method for players who play tighter than the average players at the tables. This is because you will be contributing money to the pot less often, but receiving the exact same amount of rake as everyone else.

      i am moving to stars :f_biggrin:

      Heh, according to fairly reliable rumours, PokerStars is about to change to contributed rake too. Looks like the networks have had enough of shortstackers in NL and supernits in FL.

      From the PokerStrategy rooms available, I'm fairly sure at least Full Tilt Poker, Everest Poker and Cake Poker are still using the dealt rake system. And PokerStars is as well of course, at least until the change is confirmed.

      too bad Full Tilt Poker going to raise the minimum buy-in
      so one more down X(

      http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28/int...12-17-a-660775/

      Since we aren't going to be able to give those promised changes by the end of the year, I at least wanted to give a little information about the nature of the changes, so some of the speculation can end. To answer the most commonly asked question: we *are* going to raise the minimum buy-in on standard (no icon) tables. That’s not all we’re going to do, but that’s the biggest change. And that's all I can say about that until the update.

      "Nothing major, but definitely informative" Let me laugh. This is a MAJOR change, its robbing major part from possible cash-bonuses.

      This is the way how Mansion tells to reasonable pokerplayers "f***-off" and wellcome all maniacs.

      This change is very, very bad for FL Holdem players who play with PS recommended stats. My experience is, that in FL short earned Mansion points dropped to half and in FL full to 25% compared with old scheme. Everybody who is familiar with Mansion Loyalty Scheme know what it means to levels and cash bonuses.

      This means that there is not any more reasonable "rakeback" with earned cash-bonuses because to reach same amounts require at least trible work after this change.

      In addition on Saturday 2.1 and Sunday 3.1 during Happy Hours double points were not granted. Maybe tehy are also planning to cacel Happy Hours ?

      Maybe it's time to move away from iPoker, (at least from Mansion) to sites that still give reasonable rakeback in some form ?

      That's really a major change. At the moment my status is Platinium. I don't think that i'm able to reach the necessary points this month with the new rake system. I think Mansion Poker is far less attractive now. I will definitely think about a change of the platform.

      cheers
