The Frequent Player Points don’t add up all that quickly, since they only count the hands where you saw the flop, instead of the hands where you were dealt two cards. And they round it down to a tenth of a point each time.
At .25/.50 you’re going to need 15-20K hands to clear a 100$ bonus. That is SLOOOOOOW…
And that is their 50% deposit bonus increased with a 50% deposit bonus (with a 100$ max) from the 2+2 bonus program. Not that interesting. But it’s with 5 free 2+2 books! And that changes things…

Also table selection is hell there. .25/.50 is the lowest limit they have, and it’s crowded with multitabling tightwads. Good luck finding more than 1 or 2 tables where the VP$IP is above 30 (and stays that way for at least an hour)…
But there is the occasional VP$IP >50 table that just got filled with fish. But the tightwads jump on those immediately, so you have to get there first… [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I can't think of five 2+2 books I want that I don't already own.

Well, I’m just beginning to build my 2+2 library, so they come in handy for me...

SSHE and HEfAP were first on my list (took the 3 Poker Essays volumes as well), and now Theory of Poker and WITHEG are coming my way (together with WLLHE, GSiHE and Mathmatics of Poker).

Next are the NL-books...
I’m taking everything I can with the program... [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

my daughter got her driving learner's permit today.

my explorer now has a size 8 indent in the passenger floor board and indents in the door handle that match my fingers.

i think i may be due for a dosage increase of blood pressure meds.
