If you are asking how to get a kickback on the tournament fees and the cash game rakes, you'll have to be a gold-star ranked player or higher. You'll not be getting any of that back, not at this level.

Anyway, all the games in the school are freerolls. Hard to refund something when the fees are zero.


If you mean "rank," then you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Everyone is at the same level since the month just started. Go to the leaderboard and you'll see how you are doing.

Hi...Maxidane...and welcome to PSO...if I'm understanding your question correctly...then the answer is you do not get any rake...PokerStars gets rake usually in the form of a percentage of real money pots and tourney fees...hope this helps...GL and see ya around.

PokerStars version of rakeback are VPPs (VIP player points) and FPPs (frequent player points).

Here's the link to the VIP Program - how to earn them and the benefits available.

http://www.pokerstars.com/vip/

To check your FPPs, open the cashier screen and they're displayed below the real money/play money summary. From the cashier screen, hit the VIP Status button to see your monthly and yearly VPP accumulations.

The answer to your question is NO (no rake back)
Most sites will give you a rake back (cash) through another website, NOT PokerStar

Like the others have mentioned, you do get a sort of rake back in FPP's and VPP's

In simple terms, if you spend a dollar in tournament fees and/or rake at the ring games, the site will refund a portion, say ten-cents, as an inducement to play more. I understand some of the PokerStar pros pay nothing as an inducement to be on the site.
