Holdempoker has a $666 100% match 1st deposit bonus. They currently don't have any dealings with affiliates. They are also offering an ipod to anyone that signs up 10 referals through refer a friend. the friend has to play enough to gain 100 points and you have till the end of november to get 10 sign ups. I would like to start a chain on getting the ipods with players that have been a member here since at least 2004. Any ideas on how to get this started and not violate terms and conditions on here. Ive checked PSO's site and Holdempoker isn't listed, plus I dont think any affiliates would be harmed except possible future sign-ups, if Holdem changes its business practices. Moderator if this post is not kosher please except my appoligy and delete asap.

P.S. I just want to get the Ipod for my wife for christmas. I would like to see others on here get it as well, as long as nobody is violated

Skin of pokeroom. games are pretty good, but will probably tighten up after some of these skins offers. Hollywood and checknraise are skins also.

You want to see something SCARY check out the
chart on how much rake it takes to get a player point!

It looks like the same point structure as hollywood which wasnt that great, but Hollywood took me 750 points for 50 bucks. Holdem is 700 points for 100 bucks. It looks pretty good to me. Will someone who is good at breaking this down, figure out if it is 10x or better. If it is 10x or less that is a good bonus. Im sure someone would also know what percentage this would amount for unmentionable.
Thanks

The raked hand equivalent depends on what game you're playing, but 7x points is 100% rakeback equivalent when ten-handed. (90% 9-handed, 50% 5-handed, etc.)

Since it's a non-varying ratio of .07 pts per $.10 in rake it's always the equivalent of 100% non-contributed rakeback at 7 pts per $1 regardless of what limit you play ($3 max rake). This does assume an average rake amount per player and the exact % equivalent per player would vary a bit.

The PR skin bonuses are not that good at lower limit LHE but at 3/6 and above for full ring LHE it's a better bonus than Party's 5x raked hand deals. At 1/2 and lower Absolute's 10x raked hand bonuses are supposed to be better. 2/4 is sort of iffy and depends on which 10x raked bonus you're comparing (a slight edge to the PR skin 7x).

At NL 3/6 and above the edge goes to a party 5x pretty much the whole way but it's close. Holdem gets a lot worse a lot faster as you go to down from there. My brain can't handle the shorthanded factor right now but differences vary if you add that in.

Anyone know how much time you have to clear said bonuses?

Looks like you could claim $666 + $100 reload = Tons of hands.

60 days for Holdem Poker and that seems to be the standard for PR skins.
