Mad as a March Bonus [Part 3]

I didn’t really have time to play the bonus on Party Poker this weekend, but what the hell… 25% up to $100 with a ten times play requirement is pretty good.  Playing 4 to 6 tables of $25 NL I thought I’d rattle though it.  In fact sleep got the better of me last night – what a lightweight! – and it took a third session today to get there, but the end result was worth it.  I was in microlimit heaven :)

Hands played:  2070      (for 1000 raked hands)
Hours played:  28:52     (approx 6 man hours)
Rake paid:     $34.45    (bonus costs Party Poker $65.55)
Amount won:    $157.36   (15.2 BB per 100 hands)
Win rate:      $26.23/hr
Bonus awarded: $100.00
Rate w/bonus:  $42.89/hr

As my Poker Tracker is shafted (it actually ran out of disk space before Christmas and broke the PostgreSQL database, and I still haven’t fixed it) I set up Poker Office to play this bonus, which I haven’t used in a long time and had forgotten just how good it was.

I particularly like one of the features for multitabling: showing player actions.  Poker Tracker doesn’t have this.  The overlay projects a series of letters next to each player with C, R or X for whether they called, raised or checked on each betting round.  If you’re involved with two hands at the same time and can’t quite remember who raised pre-flop this can be very useful.
