      Hi everybody,

      As I understand we ppl who play at pokerstars dont get to have a rakerace. That being, I was wondering, do we get paid if we place first at the Top250 race?

      Not that I'm anywhere close to that, but I just wanted to know if we can get anything from that promotion ;)

      I have asked the exact same question in another thread and the answer came down to this:

      Pokerstars players will not have their seperate rakeraces, as it is not allowed by affiliate regulations. We can however, play in the top250 promotion without any trouble.

      AFAIK Stars pays their affiliates (Pokerstrategy included), a one-off payment for signing up a new player, whereas other sites (eg - Full Tilt), have the option for the affiliate to recieve a percentage of the rake produced by a player they sign up.

      So for Stars, Pokerstrategy does not earn anything extra if you play more, so they can't afford a rake race because the money would have to come from their own pocket (as it does in the case of Stars players who place in the Top250).

      That's how I understand the situation to be, I may be wrong.

      Oh and yes, you can still get paid for the Top250 promotion, as that is completely seperate from the Stars platform itself.

      I am pretty sure PS is on a rev share deal for Pokerstars and not CPA. It was limited to just a few trustworthy affiliates in the beginning but even i got an email the other day from them the other day regarding a rev share deal.

      There will never be a rake race for stars due to affiliate agreements. I would say the top 250 promotion is already right on the border line of what is acceptable.
