Isn't this the same as Stars new bullshit rake system?
Poker VIP - CarbonPoker
Earning VIP Points
Ring Games: Earn 10 VIP points for every $1 of rake contributed to the raked pot. Fractional points are also awarded; so if a player contributed $0.75 in rake, the player would receive 7.5 points.
For example: There are three players in a hand (blinds $1/$2), the SB, BB and the Dealer. Dealer calls $2, SB folds, BB Checks (total pot $5). If no further bets were made, then the total rake taken would be $0.25. Both the BB and Dealer contributed $0.10 each, and would receive 1 VIP points each. Whereas, the SB contributed $0.05 to rake and would receive 0.5 VIP Points.
