I play on FTP without rakeback. It kind of sucks but I'm surviving.

me 2. i would love to but i guess we can't b/c we didn't do it before opening an account, which i find incredibly annoying.

does anyone know why that is?

Rakeback serves as an incentive for players to get started. After we have gotten started there isn't really any incentive to give it to us unless we plan to move to another site.

Why no1 talks about Ongame HU CASH? I've played there for 3 days so far. LOTS OF DONKS. Good rakeback+bonuses. The only disappointment I've hit the worst run in my career 20 bou-ins swing, but today everything changed and these donks stopped hitting it.

Yes above average but still very beattable at low limits

Depending on the game, NLHE still seems to have low flop percentages.

Used to be true in general but other games have flop percentages of 50% upwards - thus PS being tough is no longer the case - more like dodge the fish - it's like a pool of piranha.

Sometimes I think that some of the players at PS think of it as a glorified slot machine - calls that make no sense given the texture of the board and lack of outs.

Seen accidental reloads in fixed limit of $15K and in one case $100K at $1/$2 tables.

In tune with the slot machine mentality at PS, be aware at PS HU - there seems to be this type of player (a lot of them - scammers) no matter the size of the HU buy-in price, who raises preflop and keeps pounding no matter what the texture of the board is - even if raised back hoping to hit or bluff you out - just hope the boards hit you and not them.

I have had hands where AA9 flop and they are pounding and you have the A9 and they'll be pounding with 72s to give you an idea - in this case hopefully it's HU NLHE.

OnGame was great, but Hollywood Poker, Eurobet, PokerRoom, et al, no longer accept US players. Yes, these games were pretty descent.

RakeBack doesn't add up to much on HUSNGs. If you are playing the 20+1. And you play 30 games a day, you end up with 30/3= 10 smackers a day. That is 1/2 a buy in a day. Actually, you get less than that at FTP, more like 7 dollars a day, or 210 per month.

Last time I checked, my total rake over all my HUSNGs was greater than my total winnings.

Sad but true.

After discovering that, I stopped checking, and will never check again. But having 27% of it would be *really* nice.

And at $50s instead of $20s, at 30 a day on average, that would still be $500/month that I'm not getting now.

:/
