  • Back to S&Gs, super MTTs.

    Today, I made a decision to stick to STTs, and the super MTTs with more than 180s or 360s. I play better 9 handed, knowing that I can watch usually 5 or 6 of those players,and know(usually) before playing my first 5 hands, who should be there to fight for the $$ spots, giving me freeway to clear off the 5 or 6 I'm watching. umbup:

        Hey you know what, I was thinking of maybe making a deposit so I would be eligible to play in those Depositor Freerolls every night, since Zoom seems to get so tought between 8pm-12pm.

        You think they're good value? It costs me something like $4 to make a deposit on credit card, and I don't want to spend any more on rebuys and add-ons, so I'd have to be able to make at least $4 to break even ... :/

            This is the reload I used, 20% deposit bonus, you get about a month and a half to clear it, and you need 100 VPPs/$5 to clear it. For a $25.00 deposit, it gives you a $5 bonus. Bonus code for this is 'WCOOP' umbup:

              Minimum Deposit is $10 for me if it is $4 for you is a very good value, re-buy of 0.30 for 1200 chips 3x max. + add on 2000 chips each game.

                Just remember any bonus is there to reward the poker site and not you but if you're going to deposit any way you might as well take up any offers.

                The last time Stars ran a similar promotion to this I over stretched myself and broke even over the period. Considering I had a 15% ROI only clearing the bonus and making no profit made no sense to me.

                I will take up the WCOOP bonus but I will forget about it and just play my normal game. I did say I was going to play the bonus game and take whatever I can from the site but it means shifting cash around frequently.

                I'm not sure if the $1k freerolls are great value but if you're a beginner then I suppose the practice with a chance to win some real cash would maybe be better.

                There is also a talksport bonus code but also Pokerstars Radio will be announcing a deposit bonus if you listen to their show.

                HTH.

                  @Trustysam I looked into it for a friend and I think its a great offer/promotion providing you are comfortable with turbos (this was the reason I didnt deposit)

                    Hey, thx for the ideas everybody!! umbup: I used to play a lot more, but the zoom games seem to have been getting harder after 8pm, and so my VPP's have gone down from about 400 a month to about 150. So then I've been wondering about what to do ... commit to playing x number of hours a day anyways, just for the practice? Or try doing something else at those times, like the Depositor Freerolls or STT's? The price of the Depositor Freerolls can't be beat, eh? That's very tempting if they only cost, well $0 haha . But then maybe to really have a chance to cash you have to be willing to get the rebuy and/or add-on, and so the $1000 prize pool is maybe more like overlay instead of pure freeroll? I guess it's still pretty good value though, eh? And then I kind of forgot about the fact that there's a lot of beginner beginners, and that it's a turbo ... now that I think about it, don't the games play a lot like the Open League? So that could get kind of frustrating, eh? I guess the 20% reload bonus would be a nice deal if I was still making 400VPP's a month ... that'd be an extra $20, minus the $4 it costs to deposit. Except the games aren't as fun when they're packed with regulars, so I still can't decide if I want to play more or less in EST evening times. Guess I'll have to decide sooner rather than later if there's a deadline for making a deposit for the WCOOP bonus, eh? Thanks so much everybody for the info!!

                        Well, so I made a deposit I didn't need, just so I could play the Depositor Freerolls this month. Always fun to try different things, just to keep things fresh, eh? Somebody at my first table said he's come in first a couple of times. And then so I asked him if he had any tips, and he said the key for him was "cunning and patience". Then I looked over at his VPIP/PFR and it was 100/40 after 15 hands I guess everything's relative, eh? It should be easy to min-cash with an add-on, even if card-dead, because I barely played a hand (AKs http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/rep...ash=7DAA92EB8B I guess sometimes it's just not your day. But there's always tomorrow, and I've got access to these for the entire month, so hopefully I can pick up a couple of cashes and get some practice playing turbo tourneys in the process. It's nice fun, anyways Not sure if I'll bother with rebuys after today ... I only did the rebuy because it was my first day, and I wanted the whole experience, you know? Will see how it goes Sam

                          I stopped playing the depositor freerolls, I was rebuying, and if you don't, all of a sudden, the add on, with a pile more chips for $.30, I tried a few times w/o add on, and everyone else has about 30,000 and if you're running better than average chips before the add-on, the add on buries your stack. I'll take the $5 bonus, don't need to rebuy to get it. umbup:

                            Please Note: Deposits must be made before 23:59 ET on September 4. You will have 45 days from the time of your qualifying deposit to clear your bonus. Any bonus that has not been cleared after that time will be lost. This offer is limited to one deposit per player. If you cash out during the bonus period before making a qualifying deposit, you will become ineligible for this offer.

                            You still got 15 hrs 30 mins to made up your mind@Sam

                            Good Luck.

                              ^^^ Oh ho!! umbup: umbup: Thx so much for noticing that deadline Hitman I never would have noticed myself, and was able to make another deposit with the other code. I want it all!! Is it weird that my bankroll is about 90% deposits and about 10% winnings? lol ... oh well Ya, Stakehorse I was worried about that ... feeling pressure to buy those rebuys and/or add-ons, and then winding up spending more money than I intended. And part of why I wanted to play these freerolls is to try and see what playing would be like if I didn't worry so much about min-cashing to make my money back and stuff. Was thinking maybe I could use some of my WCOOP bonus to buy the rebuys/add-ons? (Good thing I made that 2nd deposit hehe! ) I'll have to see how that goes so I'll know what to do next month. Will keep everybody posted! PS Thx Hitman for the well-wishes in the other thread! umbup: umbup: PPS And can everybody else see Stakehorse's replayer hand in post #2? Anybody else who can't see it?
