      Hi, I'm going to give Omaha a shot.

      Will deposit $250 to give me a bankroll at PLO5.

      How much of the bonus will I be able to work off in the time allowed?

      What would the bonus rakeback percentage be?

      Bonuses should be 40% rakeback+ or they're not worth a carrot.

      Should I deposit $500 instead and play PLO10? Please bear in mind that I'm a beginner with a DC membership and have read and studied Hwang's first book.

      PLO5 and PLO10 aren't that different from my (limited) experience. Plus the rake on PLO5 is astronomically high even compared to PLO10. If you can afford to deposit $500 then do it and play PLO10, the bonus clears a lot quicker, seems to be $10 bonus cleared per 1k hands on PLO10 or something, and judging by the (estimated) rake of 20bb/100 on PLO10, that means we rake $20 per 1k hands to clear a $10 bonus, so 50%.

      Haven't got HEM open to look up the exact figures atm, so it's an estimate but definitely not far from the truth.

      Oh, and stay the hell away from my tables! :s_evil:

      EDIT: On second thoughts, ignore that post. I believe it is 1k hands of PLO20 to release $10 bonus, which puts it at 25% rakeback.

      For cash you get about ~25% Iron and ~30% as Bronze when clearing the bonus. That's what I was getting at PLO20. The higher the level the bigger RB% your FDB is.
