      If your on Full Tilt:

      It's 27 percent back on your rake given to full tilt poker. 2 Strategy points equal 1 dollar of rake. So for every 100 strategy points you should be expecting about 13.5 dollars worth of rake.

      If you signed up through a poker strategy link (which you obviously did), they will send you this money every friday, and it is earned between tuesday and monday of the previous week. Another way of roughly estimating it is multiply your points earned (between tuesday and monday) by 0.03. For every 1000 points you earn you should be expecting about 30 dollars worth of rakeback. [1000= total rake received at ring games /9 = your rake x .27 = rakeback]. You don't have to worry about "how do i get it", pokerstrategy will sort it out.

      If it's another poker room , I'm sorry I do not know.

      Well if you still have nothing by tomorrow night I'd be worried but, You'll probably be sent about a tenner tomorrow from pokerstrategy. Unless your currently clearing a bonus on full tilt.

      I'm from Dublin too by the way mate

      Basicly yeh. Two weeks ago for example, had about 60 dollars in my account. Played rush poker about 2/3 hours a day which is like 4000 hands. End of the week I'm still on 60 dollars, broke even basicly. And pokerstrategy send me 40 dollars for rake. It's good. Up to 100 for my troubles

      Hi pogodon,

      If you received your starting capital last month on Full Tilt Poker you do not get rakeback. In order to receive it you need to make a deposit.

      For an explanation of all those poker terms see our glossary. For example Rakeback

      Good luck on Full Tilt Poker,
      Hannes
