Elite Benefits Earnings
What is the difference between Rank Points and Combat Points?
Rank Points determine your position in our Elite Benefits Program.
Combat Points are earned alongside Rank Points. The number of Combat Points you will earn each month depends on your rank. Combat Points are a spendable currency.
To view your Rank, launch the Ya Poker client, log in, click on the “Rewards” menu, and then choose “Elite Benefits”. You will be able to see your current rank, available rewards, and more.
How to earn points playing Ya Poker tournaments
For every $1 USD you pay in tournament fees, you’ll earn 5.5 Rank Points.
For example, let’s say you are playing an online poker tournament that costs $10+1 to get into. $10 goes to the prize pool and $1 is the entry fee. The $10 in the tournament is irrelevant in calculating Rank Points. For tournaments, we only consider the fee associated with the buy-in. In this case, that’s $1. And since you are awarded 5.5 Rank Points for every $1 in fees paid, you will earn 5.5 Rank Points.
Don’t worry if the tournament buy-in is under $1. You’ll still earn fractional Rank Points.
For example, in a $5+0.50 buy-in tournament, you would earn 2.75 Rank Points. To arrive at this number, we simply divided the 5.5 Rank Points per $1 in half since 5.5 / 2 = 2.75.
How to earn points playing Ya Poker cash games
When you play cash games, you will automatically earn Rank Points for the rake taken from each hand. What’s even better is Ya Poker calculates your points using a weighted contributed method. In other words, you’ll earn more points based on your contribution to the pot.
You’ll earn Rank Points at a rate of 5.5 Rank Points for each $1 you contribute to the rake.
Kindly note that for all ring games, Rank Points will be credited at the end of a hand. So make sure you don’t leave the table before the end of the hand or you run the risk of forfeiting the Rank Points you would have earned for that hand. It’s a good idea to click “Sit Out” and remain at the table until the next hand starts if you want to earn your Rank Points.
How many Combat Points can I expect to earn per Rank Point?
Your earning potential depends on your rank in the Elite Benefits Program. You’ll earn anywhere between 1 and 5 Combat Points per Rank Point. Check out this chart to see how many points you can rack up.
|Rank||Monthly RPs Required||CPs per RP|
|VIP Level||Yearly RPs Required||CPs per RP|
To help you make sense of the chart above, check out these examples:
A Bronze player plays in a raked hand and earns 1 Rank Point. They will also earn 1 Combat Point. A Gold player playing in the same game will also collect 1 Rank Point. As we mentioned, your earning power increases with each rank, so instead of earning 1 Combat Point, the Gold player will earn 2 Combat Points. That is because for each Rank Point a Gold player earns, they will receive two Combat Points. In this example, 1 x 2 = 2.
How do Rank Points work in tournaments? In tournaments, you will earn 5.5 Rank Points for every $1 in fees paid. So, a Platinum player who plays in a $50+5 tournament will earn 27.5 Rank Points ($5 in tournament fees multiplied by 5.5; 5×5.5 = 27.5). Since a Platinum player gets 2.5 Combat Points per Rank Point, they will earn 68.75 Combat Points, while a Bronze player will receive 27.5 Combat Points for the same tournament.
How do I find out what my Rank is?
Just launch the Ya Poker client and click on the “Rewards” tab and then “Elite Benefits”. You’ll be able to see your rank, Rank Points and other important info.
How do I see how many Combat Point I have?
To see your Combat Point balance, launch the Ya Poker client and log into your account. Next, click on the “Rewards” menu, and then select “Elite Benefits”.
Do Combat Points have an expiration date?
Your Combat Points will only expire if you fail to earn a minimum of one Combat Point in a full calendar year. To prevent your points from expiring on December 31st, simply play qualifying cash games or tournaments during the year.
