      Hey jisaac92,

      You can read more about the First Deposit Bonus @ Poker770 - First Deposit Bonus

      Take notice of the "After your deposit you have 45 days to clear the entire bonus." So there is no benefit to deposit a large amount you you will simply not be able to clear it :]

      The bonus is cleared in $5's per 425 Poker770 Points, so we need to figure out how much you expect to rake and how any points you'll earn within the 45 days.

      So, what will you be playing? Cash, Tourneys, SnG's? What stakes?

      Also moving this over to the Beginners Questions for you :)

      What stake SnG's?

      $1/$2 Cash? NL, FL, PL? Holdem or Omaha?

      If you're playing $1/$2 then I see no problem in clearing the Full $2000, after all, that's only 10 Buyins at that level.

      I've found an older post of yours that is only 3 days old:

      Due to the above, I think you may be a little confused about what you're saying you play, when we ask what stakes are you playing, we're referring to the blind levels, so $1/$2 is the blinds you're saying you play at, also referred to as NL200.

      Do you mean that you're sitting down on the table with $1 - $2, where the binds are $0.01/$0.02 ?
      Or that you're getting SnG's mixed up and those buyins are $1 & $2?

      :D I thought something was up, but wanted to be 100% sure what was going on in here :P

      Do you know many hands do you roughly play per day/week?

      500 hands is enough if that's all the time you have! Don't forget as a beginner this is the time to learn the basics correctly and setting the foundations to your future play. If you spend all your time playing and no time studying then you're wasting your time!

      Don't be in a rush to play thousands of hands a day/week. Take your time, learn how to play correctly and the volume will come :)

      All basic and bronze articles for Big Stack Strategy for now :) Take one or two a day and really try to sit down and take every concept in. Do whatever it is that makes you learn the best! Hopefully you can grind out enough points for Silver status in the coming months and then you'll have a lot more content!

      With 500 hands per week you'll be lucky to clear just one of the $5 chunks in the Deposit offer, so it's completely up to you how much you wish to deposit, but if you deposit now then you wont be ale to use the bonus in the future ;)
