Quick question, their website specifies you receive one FPP for every dollar in rake generated in PL/NL games. My question is, do they give partial credit for hands raked less than $1?

So you're probably better off playing like 3-6 limit as opposed to NLHE then.

Thanks for the info.

$3/6 LHE and up is optimal, but $1/2 limit is doable on Poker Stars as well because they adjust the minimum pot requirement down to $15 (7.5BB). lower fixed limits earn FPP at $10 but even at 50c/$1 it's going to take quite a while to clear. still, FPP's are worth 20 cents in bonus each and can be also be used towards tourneys and merch, so it's definitely not the worst deal out there (the BW chart says 50c/$1 LHE clears at $2.37/hr*table).

for NL and PL, the minimum pot size to count is $20 across the board, so I wouldn't bother with less than 50c/$1 blinds.

took me 1,324 hands (about 17 hours) playing 6 max tables. 780 hands of NL 2-4 and 544 hands of NL 1-2. At NL 1-2 you need really loose tables to make it worthwhile, and at 2-4 it goes by pretty fast.
