It varies, most of the Full Tilt sponsered players (supposedly) get $35 an hour and 100% rakeback. Not sure about Pokerstars or anything else. Of course, guys like Ivey, Lederer, Ferguson, etc get infinite monies because of their stake in Full Tilt.

re: Poker & how do sponsored players get paid?
i think they also get bought in to many tournaments by their sponsor. i know pokerstars and ultimatebet do this, not sure about full tilt. must be nice having someone pay $10k for you to play in the main event....
