      They say the Caps Lock key is cruise control for cool, and that was definitely cool news.

      Wont make a new thread but wanted to share my Everest bonus clearing experience since some ppl might be interested.

      First decision - whether to use 200 vs 500 bonus.
      Although initially unsure, decided to go for the 500 (harder to clear bec only 30 days, and in one lump sum. so if you cant do it, you get nothing...)

      Deposited $400 - played NL50 for a few days to a week maybe.
      bad time for me. lost around half my stack due to several reasons (anxiety over getting points, few active tables so was trying to do SSS on SH tables, bad beats, bad play, tilts, etc). my first big downswing.
      kind of got dejected so stopped playing for a day or two to review, watch videos, etc.
      resumed playing NL 25 and NL10 SSS.

      bonus cleared in total of 19 days.
      Bankroll $750 moved back up to NL50.

      very little traffic during daytime (in my country at least). around 2k ppl with only couple of FR tables active per limit.
      peak hours around 25k ppl 19:00 GMT. that's when you can really play properly. unfortunately around 3am for me.
      still, all in all, not too bad. good bonuses and loyalty program too.

      hope this helped. good luck at the tables!

      Well everytime I contribute $22~ each session in rake (contributed so I got more points because I play FulLRing)

      And I got around 200 points for that. 5000 points = $500 as that is the requirement
      so 100 points = $5

      So I get like 55% so its not 100% :D

      I dont know on Nl100 or Nl200 where I also play sometime
      Im still eager to know your screenname so I maybe help you concerning your stats I have then :) ?

      On Everest i played SSS NL25/50 and on some really nice table BSS NL25. I had 130% rake back. But i was clearing only 200$ bonus and mostly played at weekends where that is really easy to achieve.
