Can someone please check my math on this.

You receive .07 player points for every .10 in rake. Assuming a ten handed table and a clearance rate of 7x, this bonus basically gives you all of your rake back and nothing more. Correct?

does one player point =\$1.00?

7 PP = \$1

i think you are correct that this is basicaly giving you your rake back.

7PP=\$1
.07x100=7
100 hands x .10c in rake = \$10 total rake
\$10 total rake / 10 players = \$1.00 you contributed

It isn't all the rakeback if your rake is over a dollar, correct? I thought the maximum player points per hand is 1.

Their rake structure is terrible btw.

the PR bonus is indeed 100% rakeback at all limits. on their last player points adjustment, they began to award up to 2.1 points for a max \$3 rake, as well as fractional dollars. so while the rake structure is crappy, as long as you have a bonus running, it'll all funnel back to you in the end.

Unless if I am missing something, this is assuming that you are sitting at a full table. If the table goes down to 5 or 6 handed, then it would be less than 100% rakeback. Is this not correct?

I disagree with this. This last bonus it took me 1050 hands at 2-4 to clear the \$100. That's better than 9 cents a hand. Not the best but not bad.

this are only 5-handed short tables on pokerroom network, so that would be 50% rakeback.

Now, I'll have to check my sources on this, but I am pretty sure that a game can get short without sitting at a fancy "short-handed table". The typical bonus paid out would probably be between 70-80% rakeback, assuming the player plays only full tables AND has the stomach to finish clearing the bonus with their crappy-ass software.

Only if you play low limits. They're gearing their rake and bonuses to favour higher limits. Time to leave the kiddie pool. /images/graemlins/wink.gif

You must have missed the point of this entire thread.

The bonus is only 100% RB at all levels. You will only clear it faster at the higher levels because you are paying that much more in rake.

<font color="green">The bonus cleared very satisfactorily at 2/4, so it's very good depending on what limits you play. </font>
