Starting Bankroll with deposit bonus consideration?
So, I want to start playing 5NL on Bovada
($0.02/$0.05) which offers a 100% deposit bonus as rakeback. By the way, please let me know if there are any special CC bonus offers for Bovada >100%. Anyway, I want to have 25 buy-ins or $125 at this level. However, I really don't want to deposit that full amount. The maximum I am willing to deposit is around 80 dollars with a lesser amount being preferable. I didn't see any 2NL games on Bovada or that is where I would be starting. My question is: Should I consider the rakeback bonus and if so, then to what extent? For example, should I deposit $63 and consider myself adequately rolled with 25 buy-ins? Should I deposit $80 and consider myself with enough for 25? Why or why not?
