re: Poker & Using Rakeback to make money.
Well I know stars doesn't do rakeback, but with their FPP bonuses you basically can get rakeback. According to this: Poker Stars Avg. Fpp 100 Hands? - Two Plus Two Forums
230 VPPs per 1000 hands at 50nl. At gold that's 460 FPPs per 1000 hands or 0.46 FPPs per hand. $285 is for 25000 FPPs so that's 54,348 hands for $285. Works out to .5244 BBs/100 (since a BB is $1 at 50nl). This may not seem like much but if I'm currently averaging about 1,000 hands/hour (although only at 25nl) so that's a boost of $5.25/hour, not bad at all. Anyone have rake stats at 50nl?
