Or conversely, to get 500 points, I need to enter 250 raked hands, which equates to about being dealt in to 750 hands (since I will "enter" ~30%). Repeat this 50 times to get maximum bonus, and I'm looking at 37.5k hands. Or was there some other requirement that the hands I enter need to also be raked?
Well, if you raise initially and the blinds fold (or you are in blind and dont call raise) that wouldn't generate a big enough pot for a rake, so you could push hands up still further, to 40K - 50K+ maybe! If you play on a 6 seater table (i cant imagine 10 seater's fill up at cdpoker, they dont at Titan / Noble), then for 40,000 hands you'll go through blinds 6,667 times, costing you ten grand in blinds alone! $500 bonus sounds great now doesn't it!
