      Hey JohnDavis,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com and the Community.

      AFAIK, In order to clear your $50 starting capital, you need to collect 1,000 Full Tilt Points (FPPs). For each dollar raked from a pot, you receive 1 FPP and yes you will be notified by email I think when you have cleared the required amount,

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Cashier>>>Bonus or smth like that, there should be info on how much of bonus you have already cleared, amount left, points needed to clear another part of bonus etc.

      Im confused, what do you mean "clear the starting capital". PS deposited $50 on my FTP account but it has never showed as a bonus or being viewable as a bonus? I never received an email after 1000FTP?

      The $50 starting capital from PokerStrategy isn't a bonus, it's effectively a gift from PokerStrategy.

      You need to earn 1,000 FTP points through poker play to fully clear this starting capital. i.e. to be able to withdraw it.

      Of course most players keep hold of it and build a nice bankroll from it, but it's just a safety measure in place to ensure that people don't just withdraw the $50 straight away without playing a hand of poker.

      Hope this clarifies it, best regards,
