Rakeback is on the net rake you produce. If you're clearing bonuses at low limits, you're producing negative MGR.

There are sites that do not subtract bonus dollars from MGR.

If you are not signing up for a rakeback deal when you join a new poker room, you are giving up ALOT of $$$ long term.

Yes, you are losing out by setting up a rakeback account. CPA abuse (gift for signups) is much more +EV in the short term for most sites.

I have rakeback at a couple of prima skins - know how much I've made from it? $2.45

Know how much I could have got signing up through PSO or ITH? About $100 of stuff.

My point should be clear - rakeback only matters at sites you want to stay on.

It's not that hard to work around and get a rakeback account at any site you didn't get the first time around if you really get stuck. Easier is to just find a skin you haven't whored.

The important one to get is a Party skin (two if you think you'll want to 8 table in the future). Yes, Rakeback is nice but it's not always the best way to profit from signing up at a poker room.

you never mentioned CPA/swag as your argument against rakeback before. you had previously only said not to get rakeback because of possibility of negative MGR (which is not a good reason in of itself). you did not specify to seek an ALTERNATIVE to rakeback that might be more lucrative for a short term or whore-oriented player.

since I already brought up the CPA option earlier in the discussion, you mentioning it just now as your new point seems a bit suspect.

Although I have accounts at 3 Boss Media sites, Poker Stars , Bet 365, Crazy Poker, and Pacific Poker, I am not as concerned that I missed the boat by not getting rakeback deals before signing up with those sites.

That's ok, Poker Stars doesn't allow or have any rakeback deals, so you didn't miss much there.

Fine, whatever. I didn't see you bringing it up in any of your posts either, but I really don't care. You're great, you win, do you want a [censored] cookie?
