      Although the bonus as Ladbrokes is very nice (especially combined with the rakerace) you should have a free month in front of you to make sure you can put in the necessary hours. Lots of grinding involved and if you don't make it - you get nothing :o

      he said he doesn't have much play time as he's in the military, so he's probably better off going to higher limits than NL50, maybe 10 BIs @ NL100 ... wouldn't recommend it like, but he is in a hurry :D

      Just so you know, the new requirement for bonus release is 10000 raked hands in 30 days for $1000.

      Unachievable, imo.

      Really?? I mean that sound easier for me. Means i can play NL10 like crazy and get 1k$. Can you post like where they say that? I mean at SH every 28-33% hands are raked which means lets say 33k hands but ANY limit!

      This sounds to good to be true i easily play 40k hands/month :D

      Hey guys i am thinking to deposit there as well but not sure if i can make it! What's the different about the raked hands? I am not that informed about this things if u can explain it to me in details it will be appreciated. Do i get to participate in the Rake race right away or i should clear my bonus first?

      P.S. I play in FT NL50SH.

      Of course i checked their site. Here is about FDB:
      http://poker.ladbrokes.com/en/poker-promotions/welcome-bonus

      Andy yes they changed to:
      Note: For the purposes of the Welcome bonus promotion, you will only accumulate raked hands in cash games. You will accumulate 1 Raked Hand every time you participate in a Qualifying Raked Hand.

      For 1k$ you need 10k of Qualifying Raked Hand! Now here is problem i didn't find what is Qualifying Raked Hand so please someone who knows explain.

      And yes you can participate in rake rake while clearing bonus:
      12. This offer cannot be combined with any other bonus or promotional offer other than the Rake Race promotion.


      So what is Qualifying Raked Hand at Ladbrokes?

      Somehow I doubt that you can play NL10 and get 1K.

      I think NL50+.

      they send me this answer:

      A raked hand is any hand where you are dealt cards and the rake from the
      pot is $0.25 or more.

      If rake is 5% that means the pot should be $5 or more.

      exactly...I would say that the bonus is very easy to clear playing nl50+, but perhaps also doable on nl25

      If by very easy you understand playing 40k hands in 30 days, then yes.

      Easy for me :D

      You?

      Are you clearing the bonus right now on ladbrokes? does it require 40k hands on nl50SH?

      Until this point i have played around 56k hands this month, so yes I think I could do it :D

      I cleared it under previous conditions, but this is new calculation. So yes, I think you can clear it easily.
