View Full Version : Where to next? $3500.00 to work with...

11-28-2005, 03:44 PM
I grind the 50NL tables with occasional success at MTTs. That's all I feel comfortable with and through the assistance of 2+2, PT and poker books, I've built a nice roll of $3500.00. I have accounts at Party, Absolute and Paradise. I put 2000.00 into neteller but I don't know where to go with it. /images/graemlins/confused.gif I've read some on BW and here about some sites, but it mainly caters to limit players and those with $500.00 or $100.00 rolls. Where should I go? As with most whores, I always want to play while clearing a bonus, but I'm out of bonus on paradise & party right now and absolute has turned into a bunch of rocks.

Stars? Full Tilt? Ultimate Bet? Bet365? Bodog? A sports betting site with poker rooms? Empire? What caters to the NL player for bonuses? Especially when it comes to hands dealt vs. hands contributed and INITIAL sign up bonuses. Thanks for the suggestions in advance.

Why not look on the bonus grid on BW? They list the hourly rate for limit and NL tables.

They have LOTS of low level NL action.

Deposit $1000, grind out 301 Bodog points, withdraw, do something else for a week, repeat.

Note: They get pissed if you withdraw and immediately redeposit just to have a bonus always available.

You also have to clear the entire bonus before withdrawing any money or they take the bonus back.

what does 301 points get you?

you need to earn 3 bodog points for every $1 in bonus money, and it is a 10% bonus. i have a roll about the same size as yours, and have deposited nearly my entire bankroll into it. bodog is a great site for people that have a really large bankroll. the limit games (2/4) are fishy as... although when these guys start hitting their draws you immediately hand them your upfront cash bonus.

ohh and be careful.. you actualyl have to contribute to the pot to get it counted as one of your raked hands... i did about $400 of bonuses there before i realised this

If I were you I would start doing all the Cryptos.. Yeah, it's NL100 but IMO your bankroll's just fine for that.
Empire has a signup bonus I suppose you can do that easily.
Poker Room & its skins, and UB, are ok, just somewhat slower to clear.

Sign up at FullTilt with rakeback. Deposit $600 and get $600 bonus. Clearing the bonus will require you to get 10,000 points which is equivalent to $1000 in MGR for you.

At 27% rakeback this will result in an extra $108. Play breakeven poker and you've turned your $600 into $1308.

Or you could go to something like pokersourceonline and do all their promos and get a bunch of points and order stuff.

I was thinking about FT, but a lot of people say it's difficult to clear for a NL player and caters more to 2/4 and 3/6 higher limit players.

It aint the fastest clearing bonus in the world but from my experience the best game selection at FT is the low buy in NL games.
