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 :)

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.
