Propping/Rakeback --- Is it for real?
Since I am now taking on poker full time I am considering giving propping and rakeback a try to see if its all its cracked up to be.
I was accepted for a rakeback propping deal of 85% at a certain poker site
out there. I came across a calculator that estimates your rakeback. Two tabling NL six handed at $.50/$1.00 for 8 hours a day (hours of a regular job) translates into $3000 and change a month. Is this realistic at all? Another thing that threw me was instead of six handed play heads up, your getting close to $3500 a month at the same. Again is this realistic?
If this is really what it says it is, could you not take advantage of it in your playing style?
Is there a way to change your play to maximize rake?
Is it wrong to play to collect on rake and simply maintain your bankroll instead of taking chances and attempting to take the profits?
I am not saying im not playing to win, but if I make a base deposit into this certain room and simply aim to maintain even par with the bankroll and pocket the rake back, it seems like a great deal to me.
Can anyone help me with this?
