      Hi guys,

      Well the title says it all. I'd like to know how much rake I need to clear the 600$ first deposit bonus so that I can plan how much I will get out of it since I doubt I will clear it all in 2 months.

      Here are my calculations:

      I can generate about 900$ rake every month. I have read here: rakeback in WH
      that one generates 1) 30WHP/$rake or 2) 22WHP/$rake.
      For the first deposit bonus, 350WHP are converted into 5$

      1) will make 54,000 WHP in 2 months = 144$ bonus
      2) will make 39,600 WHP in 2 months = 113$ bonus

      How do my calcs look and how do I know if it is 1) or 2)?

      Hi Dublimax,

      It is quite difficult to say how much points you will generate for each $ rake, as the points vary for each player. For points calculation you playing style will be included. So if you see more flops you will get more points. If you see less flops, you will get less points.

      However if you play SnGs or tournaments you will get exactly 30 points per $ rake.

      So for cashgame players it might be the best to play 1000 hands and do the math afterward.

      Best regards,
