Does anybody know that if you earn FTP points in a SnG game count toward your bonus. I won SnG for one of the weekend tourneys and then had to work so i withdrew from it and they awarded me my FTP points, I was wondering if they count toward your bonus

No, only the points you earn through paid rake count, not the points you win in ftp buyins.

re: Poker & FTP Points
Not quite correct D'W.
Each real money SnG, or Tourney, has a fixed amount of FTP's associated with it. By actually playing those games, you get those FTP's. And they do count toward bonus clearing.
Placement in the event does NOT get you any more FTP's. First out gets as many points as first place.
Often you can find the info under the Tourney Info button.

...well, if ftp points were rewarded for withdrawing (instead ot T$) then it must have been from a ftp satellite, which are not real money buyins with rake.
Otherwise you're right and btw OP, the rate you earn base ftps in sngos is 7 points per $1 rake paid...the extra ftps from happy hour multipliers do not count towards bonus clearing.
