I've never played at this site. I understand they have bonus offers quite often

1. Is that true?

2. At $1/$2, from what I think I read, the pot size needs to be at least $15 to generate enough rake for the bonus clearing. Is is tough to clear the bonuses there assuming $1/$2 limit?

what do you mean by "quite often" ?
i would say once every month or 2

What is that in your avatar?

1. About every other month I would say, maybe 6-7 reloads a year.

2. At .5/1 the pot must be $10 (10 BB) to generate a FPP and 1/2 the pot must be $15 (7.5 BB) to generate a FPP.

And yes, at 1/2 the bonus is tough to clear. Not the toughest, but it is much easier at 2/4.

Thanx...I guess I thought it was far more often, like Absolute

As far as clearing a bonus is concerned...

My analysis of PT stats reveals that I cleared 10.6 FPP/tbl/hr at $0.50/$1 and 17.2 FPP/tbl/hr at $1/$2.

Or in bonus $, that is $2.12/tbl/hr at $.50/$1 and $3.44/tbl/hr at $1/$2.
