so the value is in the freeroll 45-12= +33 versus +11.2
but it takes time to play the freeroll and tournament play might not be your cup of tea.......so?
i have taken the medals but that was mainly because i had other things to do on sat afternoon
this month i 'm taking the freeroll....maybe i'll see u there .
For some reason I am blanking on how to edit my last post, so I'm going to double post here.
Just so my understanding is correct:
It will cost $12 to players with rakeback because the tournament is $20,000, there are 450 people, and its 27% rakeback?
So 20,000/450*.27 = 12
Is that how you come up with 12?
Well even if this is true, spending $12 to get $80 if you place is more than worth it. Most tournaments pay out a smaller % of players than this and if you just make the money you double your buy-in. This is, obviously, way more than double the $12 and the medals do not seem to make that much of an impact. By making gold for the month you will get 70 medals anyways, so if you just hit gold every month and play the freerolls
you will get that $100 bonus eventually.
