Your Share Points give you exclusive access to the Poker Share Trust, allowing you to buy merchandise from T-Shirts to cars, entry to land based tournaments around the world or just cold hard cash. The more you play, the more Share Points you earn. The Share Point Total will always be recorded, whether you choose to redeem your points or not. Share Points are important because this is the ultimate measure of loyalty for the Poker Share Trust, the more points you have, the more benefit you receive.
