Last night I cleared about twenty points and it only cost me $1.60 and that was playing tight.
It was PLO hi-lo. This guy at the table raised every single hand and didn't seem to know what a good starting hand even looks like. He kept playing pairs like they were made of gold and getting lucky. It was fine as I was playing tight. But I'm wondering, when players are like that, and I know I can make up the difference or better at a second table, should I just go ahead and call the blinds realizing that the maniac's going to pump the pot and get me my points sooner? At this point I'm 13.30 points away from releasing the first $10 out of my $50 bonus and I lost quite a bit while exploring the site and looking for good games and tournaments. $10 at this point almost doubles me up even if all I do is lose to get the 13.30 points.

re: Poker & Trying to clear bonus...
Cool, so I think I'll definitely play good tables, and should I spot a hyper aggressive one at my level, I'll just sit and call the blinds to get my bonus and then go ahead and call the raises with really premium hands and go for my bonus and hopefully some wins in the process.
