      guys, this thread is for us to share our profits and losses, and points earned. Anyone who has managed to cash out from pacific poker and also the $100 bonus, do share it with us here as well.

      for me, my bankroll at pacific poker is at $180 with 300 FPPs. What about you guys?

      and also, does anyone know if FPPs are directly related to amounts wagered?

      I can confirm that you have met the wagering requirement. So far
      you have wagered $5793.47.

      Whee!!!

      I already checked guys. the $100 bonus is cleared based on 10% rakeback given out every monday up till a total of $100 in rakeback is given, then it stops.

      not worth it IMO. you get better rakeback on pokerstars as silverstar. withdrawing as soon as possible is best apparrently. nice BRM btw lol

      yeah withdrawing might be a good option but there are alot of fishes in pacific. the reason why i have been moving up quite abit is because i won quite abit on the casino games and sportsbetting which are interlinked. im still following BRM.

      i play at pokerstars as well, on another affiliate site, not pokerstrategy, and i find their monetary reward similar to pacific poker as such that the FPPs collected on pacific can be converted into cash.

      lol are you serious? 1%? but the rakeback seems poor though.

      maybe winnings against majority of the weaker players can make up for the rakeback. i have read a review about how some 888.com casino customers pop into poker to take a look with little knowledge of poker, and they have no qualms playing larger buy-ins.

      have you been drinking? max rakeback is 18% and it's harder to reach than supernova on stars because there are too few tables. and it's hard to have over 1% RB to be honest. also multitabling is impossible so pacific sucks on pretty much all levels.

      yep, just withdraw and go to fullltilt/stars , that's what I'm going to do if I manage to win something tomorrow at a 55 dollar tourney (1 BI BRM ftw !!!!) I guess if I win something decent then grinding the bonus will not feel like such a massive waste of time.

      Couldn't handle the awful software and lack of tables, and the terrible rakeback % using BRM vs my Platinumstar on Stars. Blasted the capital on slots, feel kinda dirty ;(

      T20 cricket is real gambool! On some pitches its a REAL coin flip, because whoever wins it and bats first wins the game. Then they also send in a maniac who comes off and scores the runs for his team and they win by a few...

      All that circus tilts me to the hell.
      And the downswing was ready to grab me so i lost my capital. Set vs runner runner flush, set vs runner runner quads, flush vs full, KK vs AQ and AK (A on the turn) and AJ vs AQ at AJ7Q board. Good bye my 5 buy ins :s_cry:

      edit: I think justice caught me because I missclicked and called all in with 97o, other guy had AA and the flop came 99x.
