I have 10 days to get in my 18,000 raked hands for the $400 and $500 bonus. /images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Anyone else gonna have to struugle to hit this bonus?

I have many hours ahead of me. I've cleared the 500 & 100 and I'm only 1500RHs into the 400. I'm thinking about calling in sick a couple days next week. I think I ate some bad clams, or the changing weather always gives me a bronchial infection. Also I might have strep throat or I pulled a muscle in my back (I almost fall over when I stand up).

Ouch...that almost doesn't seem worth it.

If it's not true, it's definitely worth it.

I think it's only worth it if you are too complacent to change sites bonus for bonus. I could play about 12-15000 hands a month for better deals and I haven't hit all those sites yet. I am expanding 1-2 sites per month.

I hear ya. However when this is your main RB site, it is wonderful. I'm very complacent with that.

After a stumble during the first 5 days (not getting in as many hands as planned), I have been able to regain ground and am only about 1000 hands behind pace.

I made my $100 deposit on the 1st and started playing. On the 3rd I made my $200 and $300 deposits. I made my $400 and $500 deposits on the 10th. Fortunately at this time. I noticed that I had used the wrong code for the $200 deposit, so had to add this on to the end. With 10 days to go I am about 1/4 through the $500 bonus and needing the $200. Essentially, 10 days and roughly 12,000 hands. I don't expect any problems, just have to stay focuded.

To top it all off, I'm up almost a grand so far.

I also did the Empire, Party, and Gaming Club bonuses.

Is anyone whos not a dumb as me capable of doing the math of whether the Multi Bonuses (20x) with rakeback, is better than the current party bonuses (10x) playing 2/4. To me it seemed like a wash but im not that smart

I have the 10,000 $500 bonus to go and I am almost totally burnt. A 35,000 hand break even streak will do that to ya. I don't even know what color it is anymore, nor even what IT is. I will play these damn 10,000 hands, collect the bonus, wait for the rb, and enjoy a lONG freaking vacation. I'm not quite insane, but it sure is starting to look better.

Im finished with the 100,500, and 400. Part way through the 300. Ive got about 8k hands left. Well ahead of pace. What I did to make it real easy was just sat 1/2 whenever I was watching TV. Since the 1/2 is almost impossible to not crush this has made the bonus almost effortless. I play my normal 3/6 a few hours a day and then get in a couple hours of 1/2 when I dont want to really focus on the game. You dont get much rakeback on top of your play @1/2 but who cares.
I would recommend this approach to anyone who has a lot of hands left and is getting burnt out. Just drop it down to 1/2 and flip on the mental cruise control.
