      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.

      can any1 please explain?

      and really sorry if im asking a really stupid question :P

      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.
