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.

  • I’ve had a bonus offer from Party Poker sitting in my inbox for nearly a week now.  It actually expires at midnight tonight, so I’ve really left it until the last minute.  The problem is that I just can’t find a way to convince myself it’s worth deposit

  • Although Party Poker’s reload bonuses are useless these days, there’s still value to be had at Empire Poker.  The two sites are the same, it’s the same players at the same tables, the only things that are different are the colour schemes and the loyalty
