It,s such a scam. like chasing a pocket str8. I spend twice the amount to clear the Bonus because once your sucked into it, you can,t let go !! But my only advice could be,, play 10cts nl,,, if it only takes $5 to rake because these games often make the rake.

I think it depends exactly what are the terms and conditions of the offer. One think I particularly don't like is when the site says that you have to contribute to the pot for a hand to count. That doesn't suit my tight style at all (low level NLHE) :( .

:D My strategy tops anything out there.  First of all, don't deposit unless you absolutely have to.  Secondly, don't bother with clearing bonuses.  The're a bunch of crab, good for the poker room only.  A sure fire way for them to make a bunch of dough off you.  What a gimmick!  Lose money to try and keep a lousy few dollars.  Wow, what a concept!! Thanks, but, no thanks, not for me.  There is enough free money out there, just do it. :lol:  :wink:

If your game isn't good enough to win money while you're clearing bonuses, then this is good advice.  

In terms of there being enough money out there in freerolls, it depends on your point of view.  If you're satisfied to make a buck or two per hour freerolling, that's certainly feasible.  But if you want to make $5 or $10 or more per hour, then you need to play buyins, although not necessarily ring games.

There is a lot of free money out there in freerolls, but like Arjonius mentioned, you have to play for hours to hopefully win a couple bucks.  Yeah, it piles up over time, but if you can make money consistantly playing cash games, why not take advantge of free money that way?  Same church different pew.  We both want the free money, I'm just willing to risk a little of my money along the way.

I used Omaha hi/lo to clear bonuses because you get big pots. But i get sucked into playing and end up losing with good starters. SO i just don,t play to clear bonus anymore. It,s not worth it !!

You only lose money trying to clear a bonus if you are a losing player. I would hope that more than a few members of this forum are winners.

I am a consistant winner at poker, so why would I not want to try and clear a bonus and earn even more free money? Free money is good!

I play Titan most of the time and the bonus is really easy to clear.

I normally play NLHE from 0.25/0.50 to 1/2 anyway (depending on what is available) so stay in my comfrt zone when working bonus cash.

I tend to play 5 or 6 tables in mini view so the points really clock up fast. I play really tight only making coin flip moves once I have established a good lead for the session ($100 or so).

I now know the reload pattern for Titan so take money out in good time to take advantage of the reload bonuses on offer.

for me clearing a bonus is to play at big blinds , in that way you'll sure to get raked hands if playing on big blinds and one more thing in playing on big blinds is if you get to win you'll win big but on the other hand if you lose you'll lose big so dont play garbage hands make sure if you play your hand has a big chance to win.
