Anyone wanna give this custom stat a try? I'm confused about these but figured maybe someone would be find this easy. I'm looking for a stat for points as well as one for the equivalent \$ amount of rakebake (after you convert the points).

Bodog doesn't have a rakeback, but they have a points-to-cash system. They awards points (including partial points) in ring games based on the amount of the rake taken from the hand as long as you contributed to it. Here's a chart for how they're calculated:

Rake Taken –> points awarded
\$0.01 to \$0.04 -> 0.05
\$0.05 to \$0.24 -> 0.10
\$0.25 to \$0.49 -> 0.25
\$0.50 to \$0.99 -> 0.50
\$1.00 to \$3.00 -> 1.00

So the first step is figuring out how to calc the points, then we can convert them into \$. Exchange rate: 100 points = \$1.00 (basically 1 cent per point). They explain it here (http://poker.bodog.eu/promotions/bodog-poker-points.html), fyi.

I'm stumped. Anyone wanna give it a whirl?
