The new Full Tilt Poker Black Card requires a rolling average of 500 points a day for a 100 day period. Don’t mistake this requirement as being impossible, and think that the black card is only meant for mid and high stakes players.
500 points per day really isn’t too difficult for your daily grinder who just plays a few hours of multi tables every day. It’s not as tough as people think. You can really do this at micro stakes, but it requires multiple tables for at least a few hours every day.
It’s been reported by some players to take about 2 hrs daily of .25/.50 cent rush poker – 3 tables.
Another player stated it be accomplished at 4 tables of rush for 2.5 to 3 hours daily at the .10/.25 level.
I can play mostly 2/4 for about 2 hours a day on average, generally from 4-8 tables and average around 550 Full Tilt Points a day. I’m going to crunch the numbers and see how this will affect my Full Tilt Rakeback amount.
If you’re only earning 250 points a day or less, it really isn’t worth it to double your play just for the back card. Let’s face it, you need a dedicated few hours a day to get the Full Tilt Poker Black Card. You can check out some of the items in the Full Tilt Poker Black Card store.
A frequent question about points is “Do happy hour points count toward the Back Card?”
Unfortunately, the bonus points earned during the happy hours will not count towards the black card rolling average.
