Somebody once told me 'its like you're choosing to have rake back instead of promotions/bonuses and freerolls'.
They were wrong. As an example, let's look a $100 bonus when we have RB vs when we don't. For simple math we'll say we need to pay $200 in rake to clear the $100.
Without RB, we clear the bonus and receive $100. Simple, we're $100 richer than without the bonus and we've basically got 50% rb for clearing the bonus ($100 bonus / $200 rake paid).
With RB, we clear the bonus and receive $100. Now $100 is deducted from our MGR and we get RB on the remainder. So we get the $100 bonus + $27 in rb or $127. If we didn't have the bonus we would have received $54 in rb. So we've earned $73 more than we would have without the bonus and our effective RB during the bonus clearing period is 63.5%.
So since $127 > $100 AND 63.5% > 50%, bonuses + rb > bonuses OR rb.
