      Another new guy. Just finished my test and waiting for my starting capital on Full Tilt where I will start playing 1c/2c NLHE.

      Just wondering how I progress up the ranking ladder? I had no idea PS had such good strategy content!

      Also I am a little concerned about rakeback. Do players who get the $50 starting capital also receive rakeback? I really hope I haven't scuppered my chances at rakeback by getting the free $50!

      BTW I am from Chatham in Kent in England.
