      I read that for each 1$ that was raked in a pot , each player is getting 1 FTP.
      does this means that I also get 0.27$ rakeback for each 1$ raked or I get rakeback only from the money I put in the pot ?!

      Because , If I see the flop and fold and then the pot become big , I will get a lot of FTP because I was playing in that hand , but question is.. will I also be getting rakeback although I barely put money in that pot ?

      I ask this because I play a lot of STUD in the last couple of days and because of the ANTE I get a lot of points... will I get rakeback accordingly ?

      for every $1 rake from the pot you get 1 FTP

      your participation to the rake is:

      rake / number of players

      and you get 27% back of that.

      As long as you were dealt cards. It does not matter whether you put any money in the pot or not.

      Is ANTE considered at participating ? or I must bring in (in STUD games)
