I deposited $200 on Absolute for the bonus and have set about clearing it. I am playing 6max $1/2 FL. I am buying in short(20 bb) and playing uber tight except when in the blinds. Its been effective but I have still had two big downswings and four large upswings. One thing I do is raise and re-raise the monsters to the river disregarding flop texture entirely. Sometimes it has contributed to the downswings(had kings cracked by 5,2 suited) but mostly it has maximized my profit on my premium hands. I am not advocating ignoring the board as a rule(I can make a case for it though with the monsters) but while clearing bonus I think its effective. There are so many bad players that will over-call and re-raise with crap or nothing when a scared card comes that I have chosen to ignore them with my premium hands. If a solid player is in the hand with you they will usually be gone before they suck out. Now I have made a nice profit and I'm looking for the next easy bonus, any suggestions?
