want to clarify something so please correct if wrong

10\$ rake = 20 Strategy Points
10\$ rake = 10 FTPs

but the FTP my ironman page shows is around 3 times the strategy points that i am getting, whereas it should be around half.

and really sorry if im asking a really stupid question

Hey timbakt00
You get 7 fulltilt points per \$ you rake in sngs and tourneys. I don't know with cash game - But think its something similar.

Earning Points

Start earning Full Tilt Points by playing in any qualifying raked real-money hand in a ring game or a real-money Multi-Table Tournament or Sit & Go with a tournament fee:

* 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.

* Tournaments: For every dollar paid in Multi-Table Tournament or Sit & Go fees, you'll receive 7 Full Tilt Points. There is no limit to the number of points you can earn per tournament. For example, if you play in a tournament with a \$10 buy-in and a \$1 tournament fee, you'll receive 7 points; if you play in a tournament with a \$200 buy-in and a \$16 tournament fee, you'll receive 112 points.

Please note: Points are credited at the end of a hand or when the tournament finishes.

That is because for a cash game if there is 5 people at the table and FT takes \$1 rake. They actually count \$0.20 from each player. For a tournament the tournament fee is for each person.
