      Okay so - I have just come to the end of my reload bonus at PartyPoker and am looking to see what room I should play next. I already have accounts at Stars, Titan, Party and 888 - so unless they have any good reload bonuses going I am looking for a new room.

      The problem is I don't want to eat into my BR to get HEM yet and so am using elephant as my HUD, elephat is great but of course limited to only a few rooms. As far as I know the rooms that I can still get accounts at and are supported by elephant are Full Tilt (obviously not at the moment), Mansion, Everest and William Hill.

      My BR is currently at a little of $250 and I am playing BSS on FR NL $0.10/0.05. Playing around 12-15k hands a month. Any idea which of these rooms I will clear more bonus at? Trying to work out the rakes and points is very confusing.
      Also, I'm a little reluctant in going to Mansion what with all the ID checks and rubbish (can't be bothered with that, want to open an account ASAP).

      Anyway, if anybody can offer any advice I'd much appreciate it. Cheers.

      I personally very much enjoyed William Hill back when I played there.

      As an added bonus, you also received 1 StrategyPoint per dollar for your first deposit on William Hill, which should easily help you soar through the status system here, if you indeed plan to move your whole BR.

      The First Deposit bonus is cleared at 350 WH Points per $5 increment, and after you've deposited you have 90 days to clear the deposit.(Three times as long as for the PP 200july reload bonus!!)

      I haven't personally played on Mansion or Everest, so can't say much about those unfortunately.

      @fruktpuff - WH was my first choice I think - just need to find some scripts particularly auto re-buy woudl be nice. Do you have any idea how much rake roughly 350 points is? - the rake system seems very complicated. Also, is it released in $5 increments or do you have to earn it all?

      @thazar - thanks - looked at 888 reload but just realised it's not supported by Elephant (must have been using PT2 when I signed up there, long time ago).

      What I would really like to know, and there probably isn't an easy answer, is how easy it is to clear the bonuses in terms of rake paid as the points are really complicated most of the time.

      Everest does give a calculator and it looks like I could clear about $90-100 of bonus over 30 days playing NL10 15-16k hands. Can I assume WH and Mansion will probably be about the same as this? obviously that would be nearly $300 for WH over 90 days.

      200% up to $2,000 Bonus - if you didn't receive the free 50 http://www.pokerstrategy.com/william-hill/download/

      100% of the amount you've deposited as a poker bonus, up to $2,000. - if you received the free 50 http://www.pokerstrategy.com/william-hill/free50/


      Spidey1978 didnt received the free 50 and therefore can benefit of the 200% bonus

      Spidey
      Everest has 48% clearance rate an willhill 42% which is quite high rate compared to average.
      Everest no minimum deposit - willhill up to 200%
      Everest is softer - ipoker has better traffic (means better table selecting also)
      Everest 1$ raked - 4 SP's, Willhill 1$ raked - 5 SP's plus 1 SP bonus.
      Ipoker has promotional low rake cash tables.

      Verdict - Ipoker - Willhill

      Enough said!

      I'm sold - that is where I will be playing as of tomorrow me thinks.

      One last question - I will search myself but anybody had any luck with finding an auto re-buy to max script for WH, or does the software include it?

      I was playing some PLO cashgames there yesterday, and it was a bit confusing to set up, but the rebuy option WAS available in the software.
