You should be able to do it in about 16 table hours of playing $100NL 6 max. Not sure about other levels, or full ring. They do use the contributed method so take that into account.

I dont understand the fpp system 100%, do you get for every 1$ RAKE or for every pot >1$ where rake is taken 1fpp ?
I think its >1$ pots else you had to produce 600$ rake wich should be way more then 16h nl100 :)
Thinking about clearing because rakeback doesnt really seem to be worth it -> low traffic site :/

You get exatly the amount of rake in dollars as points for every dealt hand.
So if you get 72o UTG and fold but other players enter the pot and the rake reaches 3$ you get 3 points.
If the pot is raked 1.73$ you get 1.73 (or at least 1.7 i'm not quite sure on the number of decimals) points and so on.

Hm, thats kinda weird.
Cause i could just go for rakeback and would get 200$ rb for my 600$ rake produced in cashgame, while the gift would be much worse for 600 points.
Maybe PSO should think about an easyier way to clear this ?

I think rakeback is very clearly the best option if you plan to play there at all. I highly recommend playing there as the games are very soft and you get bonus on top of the rakeback (deducted from MGR).

no, 600 points are 600$ total table rake. if you play 6 handed that are about 100$MGR meaning 33$ rakeback... thought i was clear about that....

you get points for table rake, not for your rake.

for me the traffic was too low so i wouldnt make it my main site meaning the kickback bonus was way better for me. You will also clear 20$ of the first deposit bonus.

You can find the exact amount under the game notes tab and then the "rake" entry.

if you meant MGR * 6 is not the exact amount as rake, thats just because there wont be 6 players all the time on the tables.

"Monthly Gross Revenue". Contrary to what the name implies, there are a variety of deductions applied to MGR. They vary from one site to the next. Sites also vary in terms of how they calculate the revenue attributable to each player (and therefore, which money is owed to which affiliate).
