      Hi! This is my first post :) . Anyway, I have some questions regarding rakeback, FTP & Strategy Points. I will first write what I've read about and than ask you what I don't understand.

      1) "Ring Games: For each dollar raked from a pot, every player who was dealt cards for that hand will receive 1 Full Tilt Point. For example, if $2.00 in rake is taken from a pot, each player who was dealt cards will receive 2 points. Fractional points are also awarded; if $2.25 in rake is taken, players will receive 2.25 points. A maximum of 3 points can be earned per hand."

      If I fold my hand, and other two players play a huge pot, theoreticaly I should receive the same amount of FTP and Rakeback like them because I was dealt cards. I know this is not true, but how is this working?

      2) "Full Tilt Poker $1 Rake = 2 StrategyPoints

      You can profit from 27% rakeback, great software and the chance to meet and speak with pros. Earn 2 StrategyPoints at PokerStrategy.com for every dollar of rake you generate at Full Tilt Poker. "

      If this is true, then how come i've made yesterday a couple of hundred FTP and only received 30 strategy points? If 1$ of rake means 1 FTP and 2 SP than I should have made 400 SP.

      3) Last question: On FT the total amount of FTP you have to make to realese the 50$ bonus is a little ove 800, and the normal rakeback is 27%.

      If I make 800 FTP it means I get 50$
      If every FTP is 1$ of rake, and i get 27% rakeback, then instead of the bonus i should have made 210$ ( 800x27/100)
      I know that this is also not true, but why? This is how I understand their statements on the site.

      Thanks in advance!

      1) you do receive the same amount of FTPs as the players involved in the hand

      2)you get 2 SPs for every dollar of rake you generate. You get 1 FTP for every dollar of rake anybody at your table generates.

      3)This is already answered in pints 1 and 2.
